covers good amount of material and exactly what is in the outline, presented with enough detail to follow. Good walk-through of the spreadsheets helps understanding, easy to follow along and practice.
Material was very well presented. Week 3 was challenging, but taking time to print out the slides, work through them rigorously proved very helpful. I found all sections very, very informative.

Only the first lecturer was good. Where are clear excel examples for Week 3, 3.2? You know that students have been complaining over 7-8 months and did nothing! It's a total waste of money.
SERGEY SAVIN is the BEST!!

I felt that it was very repetitive and lacked many tools for risk analysis. Also, i felt it repeated many things from the previous courses in the specialization, which turned ir very tedious.
By Michal C•
All was great, but week 3 has serious issues with linking what is in the lectures and in the quiz. Also the forum is unmoderated and there are over a year old complaints. The rest was great.

I wish after each quiz it would show you how to get the right answer then generate a different question when retaking the quiz. You cannot learn without knowing what you did wrong.
By Viktor G•
Outdated presentation style: mostly "voice behind text and Excel window" long... long videos.
I'm not questioning the material itself, but I was heavily bored during the course.
By Jordan L•
Very difficult to understand the professors, and I would have wished for more demonstration on excel, rather than explanation through slides.
By Mohammed S•
comparing with the operations analytics with the same instructors it's not as a good as it but at all its nice course
By Jamon F•
Pretty tough, a lot of information to cover. I like challenging material though. 3 stars because I was challenged
By Jeff T•
Reasonably good. Would like to have seen the week 4 extend into using more modern tools such as R or Python.
By Stanley L W•
the first two lectures are great, but the last two come a little hurry and not illustrate very well
By Brendan C•
quiz should be unlocked. Some concepts could be explained better.
By Zijian D•
The second lecturer only read all the text in lecture slide.
By André I•
the quizzes are not really helpful/relevant.
By Evan H•
Some concepts were hard to follow.

The courses can be quicker.....

Slides were not useful.

I do not recommend this course or the specialization. I will cite below sentences from the course and you can be the judge yourself.
*** start of cited sentences ***
if we plug in the expected values … we get fifty thousand times ninety, plus nine hundred thousand times ten, plus one hundred thousand times six, plus one hundred fifty thousand times two …….
*** end of cited sentences ***
The professor was actually reading this calculation:
500,000*90 + 900,000*10 + 100,000*6 + 150,000*2
I sat through 3 courses to realize that I should have dropped it in course 1 week 1.

The course was basic and doesn't prepare anyone with an industrial perspective. The content is not enough explanatory on why are we calculating certain numbers. Week 3 was totally unclear topic. Also, more realistic examples would have made the course better.
By Natalia B•
Although great content, I found that the week three has been more theoretical with not enough detail. I still manage some key concepts, but I would have love to understand more how to use in practice the theory.
By Joshua G•
Instructors were not very descriptive. Worst course within the specialization. Really disappointing because the topics covered would've been super useful if I completely understood them.
By Davide B•
Basically i resume of economics concepts that can be taken for granted as a prerequisite of the course
By Andrey T•
Could be more content, and quizzes are really stupid - it's just plugging in numbers!!!
