My name was not written on the certificate. It said courser learner, cannot be used as proof.

The instructor gets 5 stars. She speaks clearly and at a good pace. Coursera should have her teach a full course on Data Analysis.

Microsoft or Coursera...The constant interruptions from the left pane of Microsoft 0 stars. Not sure if that's MS or Coursera technical issue.

There should be an option to pin the instructor's screen side of the screen. I logged on to my MS account and downloaded the excersise files. I'm using my own MS account to follow along using excel on a second monitor.

I tried expanding the right side by using the icon at the top right. It'll stay in a full screen position for a few minutes and then it goes back to a split screen. This happened constantly during the presentation. Also, happened in other guided project tutorials.

I tried logging out of the MS side screen by clicking on the 3. and choosing exit.

After completion of the course even after paying money, you will not get the certificate of your name so according to me this is not acceptable at all

This course was very interesting to attend, it was super quick, but it was quite fun, and I got to sharpen my skills in some data analysis tasks.

I would not mind it at all if another guided project came along, a bit more complex ehehe

This helped me understand VLOOKUP and IF a lot better, and I'm very happy I took it. I've already used tables and PivotTables for data analysis before but found that the size of the data made it difficult to use in Excel, so this is much better for smaller spreadsheets and datasets. One small complaint is that the final quiz will ask you how to save an Excel Online spreadsheet when it saves to the cloud automatically. That should be fixed.

Other than that, I highly suggest taking this!

You made my day today. You are the kind of teacher I have been looking for, you really know how to break things down to bits that can be comprehended. Thank you so much, and in case you have other materials on Data Analysis, I would be grateful to take those lessons.

Excellent straightforward course. Good teaching skills. In less than two hours (with a common Excel background), you can receive the certifcate. It was for me, a very good refresher on VLOOKUP and Pivot Tables.

The assessment test needs to be more practical! Multiple choice questions don't test the learners skillset optimally. A case study with pragmatic business questions should be used to test the knowledge stick of students using Excel and not some simple objective questions.
