This course uses a dramatically older version of Excel to the the point that it is not useful for the current version. Also, the course only includes the videos, not the text-learning portion that John Hopkins University added. This makes the course not user-friendly for people with ADHD. I have no intentions of finishing this course, as it is irrelevant to the commands and menus provided in the current version of Microsoft Excel.

Data set was US-centric without a ROW data option. I ended up spending more time on figuring out how to format the data rather than focusing on the course, which is s pity for several reasons:

I am an experienced xlsx user and was taking this course only to understand what the focus was on for subsequent courses, and

I was interested in doing the overall specialization as the syllabus fits my interests very much

There is no there is no sufficient explanation for the actions in excel. Jusy doing things and if the learner can understand them, then OK. The file of the assignment is not working, so i cannot step up to the next level as the result of the quizz is always underqualified.

Eventhough the course has various and very interesting lessons, unfortunately it is impossible to move on on.

You sucked me into this SCAM and now I'm angry. The course was not good and you have cleverly prevented someone from cancelling the free trail. I wish there were a NEGATIVE star rating option to warn consumers from falling into this garbage trap.

the text files at start of course very unclear. could not proceed, as was unable to find support for help to my questions, which was disappointing

Poor sound quality. One of the answers for the quizzes could be correct for the people using older than 2019 versions of Excel.
