Great Course, especially for someone who has little to no knowledge in this specific field.

Having the videos along with the reading material made it easy for me, to pick up where I left off especially after a long hiatus

Being able to go back and retake the practice exams was also useful to help retain the information learned

What differentiates this course from other online-courses is how much thought was given to the structuring of the lessons. A tip from my side - try not to keep wide time lap between the lessons and try to finish ahead of schedule. I would also recommend that you take notes electronically, so everything remains organized!

Really enjoyed the class! Everything was easy to understand for a newbie like me (didn't know what data analytics was before I took this class) and it was at my own pace! Enjoyed it! Usually says this class will take a month to get through, but if you put in the work, it'll take 2 to 2 1/2 weeks, like it did for me. :)

Great course with detailed insights about every topic in the Data Analytics course. The assessment system is too good especially the peer-reviewed assignment. If such assessments are provided at the end of each module, the course will become more interesting and also students can get a bit hands-on experience.

Great content which was easy to follow. However certain concepts will require to go over them a few times as any new concept can take a bit of time for comprehension and creating connections. Also, try to make one's notes in one's own words from the content available in order to fall back for review.

Content is provided in small chunks which are digestible. The questions at the end of a section do help in solidifying the learnings. The introduction to Data Analytics was given in a way such that getting a grasp of the concepts as someone who just started learning about Data Analytics is not hard.
