The videos did not help with the quizzes. I had to go back and review material in the first course of the certificate. The spreadsheets were difficult to read.

Organisation of week 1 and week 2 questions could have been better. It was draining to be honest and I was losing my interest in learning from such platforms.

Hard to follow due to the pacing. The presenter spoke too slowly at times and went too fast through certain important details.

This is the worst course ever. The professor's voice is very monotone and trying to guess excel formula syntax is insane.

The tests were not upto the mark, where the questions were not very logical and the options were confusing.
