This course has made me understand cost accounting, has provided a fresh perspective on how to solve some of the challenges i had with management accounting and as a bonus, made me love maths again :)
The course is worth the time , the faculty teaches you about some complicated advance formulae with so much clarity and ease that even beginners can be pro in excel related to business and finance.

The slides are not at all helpful. Unfortunately, this is a far less useful course than the companions in the specialization. The quizzes tend to be glitchy, and have a maddening propensity to have users type formulas,
By Olivia E•
Poorer quality than other courses. Content was sparse and poorly explained in parts, and quizzes didn't help with learning as well as they could have. The Fundamentals of Quantitative Modeling course is much better.
By Michael A•
There were issues with both slides and quiz questions. The team of instructors and TD's may be masters of their material but they lack the ability to create a meaningful and endorsable learning experience.
By Robert S•
Not very helpful or in depth compared to other courses in this specialization. Skimmed the top of topics without really providing much in terms of actually operating the tools of spreadsheets and models
By Ephraim B•
Decent content; really, really bad quizzes. Considering it's taught by the head of Wharton Online, you'd think they'd know how to structure quiz content for this delivery medium. You'd be wrong.

I was expecting an intro course for beginners... this was not it. I'd say this is more of a refresher course for intermediate/advanced users who are out of practice.
By Asif B S•
1st 3 weeks were helpful but questions of the quiz were unclear & improvement is really necessary but still an ok course for basic learners.It could be much better
By Harrison E Z•
A lot of the questions end up being opinions and I would have liked to go further in depth with using Excel. Many questions were not answered well by the videos.
By Fahad A H•
I didn't know how to make cashflow assumptions. Also, instructor jumps from one lesson to another without enough explanation how did he reach to the solution
By Dave S•
Weak, definitely not what I would call a "course". Should have been at least twice as long to give more depth. Also, too many type-in answers for quizzes.
By Jaydeep C•
The course was good in the sense that it gave at least some idea about spreadsheet model however conceptually very less scope was there for learning.
By Andrea P V•
Quizzes are very disputable. Not clear in some passages and in some cases you must remember the exact expresssion of the teacher or you fail. Crazy!
By Ansh P S•
Fine Knowledge but very poorly constructed course. Test has random questions with ambiguous answers. Monete Carlo isn't explained well enough.
By Matt B•
This course would be a lot better if there were exercises and opportunities to practice applying what is taught vs being purely lecture.
By Alessandro I•
Test submission modality is really bad, many syntax conflicts, no guidances and neither explication for bad responses are available.
By JUAN P R•
i know is an INTRODUCTION, but excel i s about practicing, so I think teh teacher should encourage the student to practice more,
By Philipp T K•
This course is somewhat lacking depth. The introduced tools are very basic and I would have expected more content for the prize
By Andrew R•
Homework assignments are poorly worded and fail to provide students with correct answers to enhance learning.
By Karnpisith L•
Unclear Quiz Questions 2-5,9 in Module2
Very basic idea for excel beginner. very few techniques provided.
By Charlie M•
Mistakes throughout the course - one example was a miscalculated mean during the Monte Carlo Simulation.
By Luís C•
Outdated information, the tool used for Google Sheets is not approved by Google. No alternative.
By Juan I R•
Material provided is very incomplete what makes to complete the quiz of every module very hard.
By Matthias D•
Very little new and does not include more complex sensitivity analysis for corporate valuation
By Alex M•
This course is poorly organized and presented in comparison to other MOOCs offered by Wharton.
By Sajjad H S•
Not a very good course. Not detailed lecture. Lecturer is not clear and questions are vague.
