Excellent class, well-written and presented with real-world examples that are challenging but not impossible to complete if you follow the small quizzes and stay on top of the deadlines. Great job!

Too basic

Good explanations from the professor, however uses older version of excel in videos than I do. Also, importing the .txt files was quite the challenge as I do not use the same number denominator and date format as in the US. After a bit of struggling, I got it to work, but wasted time = not excellent reviews. Did not learn much new, only a few tips.

Good course, but would be good if it was similar to Macquarie's Excel Course, in terms of providing Exercise material to practice with while watching the videos.

The course is very slow paced. It should be clearly mentioned that the course is for total beginners. I did not expect that lecturer will spend time on so basic information like adding/deleting/renaming various sheets within one excel file...

Pretty basic course with a lot of 'dead time' not really learning anything about Excel. Tutor should consider a few more advanced and useful topics.

The course has a lot of potential, but some questions in the quizz are very ill posed, not clear, and ambiguous. I am surprised that this course has passed the usually high quality barriers of Coursera. The course would benefit greatly from well structured and clearly defined questions in the quizz. Either a little bit more text explaining what the questions is looking for or a short example.

It's too simple, and the courses are kind of redundant. Maybe it is proper for those who have never used Excel. For other people, the courses are too easy.

Really disappointing. I was expecting a decent introduction to data analysis using excel is was like a simple version of the excel manual. The whole course took me less than a day to complete and I am not excel competent. In the end I gave up and started working on the Microsoft virtual academy courses. Needs improvement.

Won't let me proceed to Week 2 of the course without waiting for a week. Ridiculous.
