I have found Course 3 and 4 of this specialization to be challenging, but rewarding. It has helped me build confidence that I can do just about anything with data provided to increase positive impact.

Wonderful Course having in depth knowledge about all the topics of regression analysis. Instructor is very much clear about the topic and having good teaching skill. Method of teaching also very good.

Could have been more challenging. Moderate courses are easy to pass but doesn't bring about extreme competitive spirit. Some peer graded assignments could be better.

Very good class. Appreciated that it was hands-on, the quizzes were relatively challenging but not unrealistically so, the text on the slides was large (I like to take screenshot and save them to my notes), and the Excel screens were easy to see (unlike some other classes involving Excel I've taken on Coursera, in which you cannot see the calculations and they do not show up legibly in my screenshots/notes), and it was well-organized. I might have liked more reinforcement and explanation of some of the trickier concepts, such as introducing an interaction effect.

I love this Specialization, and look forward to completing it! It's an amazing journey in Statistics with Excel! If you're a beginner in Statistics, you might see the whole Specialization a bit difficult and will need to look for a Statistics course. The instructor is also a huge plus!

Very Basic Course on Linear Regression. More advanced applications examples would have been helpful

This Linear regression for business statistics course had given me the simple ideas and insights on how to use a set of data or information to obtain a Linear co-relation in a linear equation and obtain the value of the coefficient to extrapolate unknown variables. The presenter had presented the course in a simple and clear English cum with lecturer notes and MS Excel files. Mostly important is the feedback in Discussion forum from teaching staff to answer our questions to assist in my learning of this course. I gave 5 stars rating for a well organised and good quality course. Area for improvement is teaching staff should answer questions posted in the discussion forum in a timely manner and this will also help other students to study the same issues raised in the future.

Content of the course is exceptionally useful. I have taken a few econometrics courses before and this course makes me feel much more confident about using regression for analysis than the other courses. The quizzes have an acceptable level of difficulty - not too easy, not too difficult as well.
This course itself will allow you to understand the basic concepts of linear regression and gives you the confidence to use it for actual real life analysis.

Excellent introduction to Linear Regression. As you progress, you learn how to use dummy (category) variables as well as interaction variables. Examples are explained in detail so you can understand how it works. This course isn't about understanding all the detailed math & theory, but explains enough to you understand (at a high level) what you're doing and why. Then, you learn how to do it in Excel. I really enjoyed this class!

This specialization in business analytics with MS Excel is one of the most comprehensive introductions to Linear Regression as well as its applications to business statistics. Dr. Borle's lectures are engaging in their accords, and coupled with the depiction of practical implementations in MS Excel makes this course an enriching experience.

A very good course on Regression statistics with examples from the business sector that can be used later in work or life. Prof. Borle explained all topics slowly and clearly. i would extend the course to more Regression topics (residuals@ more)
Thank you prof. Borle.

I have a background in chemistry and I use linear regression on a daily basis. It was nice to understand more about this models and even though my background was not the focus of the course, I got much value from this topic. Dr. Borle is amazing at teaching.

Loved the course structure.
The way each concept is introduced and taught using basic simple example is awesome. Could be easily understood by someone with zero knowledge in statistics. Perfectly minds the knowledge gap for all levels.

The course provides a good understanding of the linear regression process and hands on exercises. The course can however be expanded and more lectures can be provided on topics such as transformation and mean centered regression.
