Instructor was clear, had a pleasant voice, easy to follow instruction, and had a steady pace that was good. My experience, so far, with some Coursera instructors has been that some go at a pace that is so fast one has to continually rewind the video. This instructor's pace was perfect.

My only suggestion would be to have several sample exercises after each task, rather than the one. This would ingrain that task so when it comes time to utilize this skill in real-world situations, it has been cemented in memory.

Learning with guidance was fantastic. Trying to learn through experimentation alone would have been challenging and time-consuming. This guided project offered detailed insights and shortcuts that will greatly aid in everyday work tasks.

Thank you for this course!

Coursera is the best platform for me to learn new skills and develop good interest in various applications like MS-EXCEL, and many more. It has become very easy for me now to understand the concepts.

Explained understandably with step-by-step guides, real-life-like examples, and additional tasks. Pivot tables, vlookup and If function (for data mining), sorting and filtering, creating tables. Highly recommend :)

The best explanation and easy to understand the concepts. The questionnaires asked at the end of the session are very creative and those could be an example to work on the live concepts in a corporate company.

Very clear and easily understandable instructions, though I would recommend using a separate excel sheet as practice. It is less hindering that way.
