I just finished the course. This course was great not only the materials but also the instructor.\n\nOnce again, the course so mind blowing. I feel more confidence to do data analyst.\n\nThanks Google
Solid "big picture" refresher course before getting into the more technical stuff I'm sure down the road, even for folks with backgrounds in math and science but haven't used it years (okay, decades).

I thought there was a lot of useful insights into things to watch out for and ways to avoid common pit-falls. Repetition on the important points seemed well timed and reenforced.

Very dense, key information could've been explained in 1/20 of what the course has done, anyways, im looking forward to the programming part !

For a total beginner starting with this foundational course makes you realize that Data are everywhere and exciting to dive deeper into them! Course's instructors are everyday people with knowledge and passion to share, motivating you at each step. Detailed and oriented in self progress with quizzes giving you that achievement feeling! Totally recommended.

It was a fun intro course to data analysis. I have already done some courses prior to this course so i had to cruise through it. But if you are completely new to data analysis field this is a great start.

Great course, well organized and the people involved represent a diverse cross section of professionals working in diverse areas.

A Good Introductory Course on Data Analytics. I enjoyed it. Thanks, GOOGLE & Coursera
I was hoping to get some practice but it is all talk and very little practice, I couldn't believe it when it said the course is completed and I have gotten my certificate. I don't feel comfortable to apply for a job. I am googling and watching YouTube videos to learn what I supposed to be learning here. I learned nothing here except some definitions I could have googled. kinda bumped and sad

Claims about people being hired as data analysts with no degree or experience are belied by lack of evidence. You can check jobs via Course 8, Wk 4. "End of certificate checklist." "Create your job profile." I don't see any no-deg/no-exp jobs. None from Google. No success stories either.

Very good course, giving beginners an overview of various aspects of data analysis, as well as having data analysts share their experiences, which is a great way for learners to get to know the field.

I am so happy for became a part of this course. I learn so many new thing from this course, thanks to Coursera and Commonwealth of learning and also course teachers , they all are very amicable.

This course did a fantastic job of painting the big picture of Data Analytics. The overview helped reinforce my decision to take the course and motivate me to keep moving

there are may repetitions, some video and reading materials are useless and a waste of time.
the design of the course into 5 weeks is too much
you can squeeze the contents in just a week
por Shivam S•
The course is not what I imagined it to be, throughout the course the same steps of data lifecycle are repeated over and over again. When I saw the course I was expecting it to teach me how to think when approaching a data analysis task, it fails to do that. There are limited case studies spanned over 5 weeks! I would suggest it will be better, more useful to have the theoretical part restricted to one week and use the other four to dig deep into cases studies, say one case study each week and really take us with you through the journey of that life cycle with proper examples. Otherwise I believe this course has failed to teach me 5 weeks worth of knowledge.

A complete and utter waste of time. There was perhaps 5% useful info (the SQL portion) and 95% garbage meant to waste everyone's time to create the illusion of academia.

I just earned this first certificate! I really enjoyed this course. I've been doing market research as an independent analyst for over five years. My role was focused on the "analysis" part. This course showed me a bigger picture of data analysis and opened my eyes to a wide range of possibilities as a data analyst. I am very excited about taking the next certificate courses to get trained in essential skills that will be useful during the entire data analysis process!

Thanks a lot to Google they spend tremendous efforts on the content, and the instructor was extremely helpful and support I appreciate this effort and looking forward to my next step in this program.
por Antony J•
Gentle introduction to data analysis with a focus on soft skills. The production quality of the videos is top-notch and it's clear a lot of time and thought has gone into developing the program.
por Daniel E R•
Some of the questions were odd or I believe them to be incorrect. One of the final exam questions used 04000 as a zip code but the leading zero should probably be requested as text for '04000' in the where statement but this was counted as incorrect. Question 6 in one of the weeks asked what SELECT * did. it says it selects all of the data from the table but that isn't quite correct, it selects all features of the data but a where clause would limit the data as well, so saying select * selects all of the data is misleading.

This course is just a basic course designed by google but the certification is given by Coursera not Google. It was advertised as if Google will issue the certificate.
por Jason D•
Well presented but often a game of guess the appropriate corporate jargon than come to grips with concepts.
por Makarand P•
lots of theory and very minimal hands-on experience.
This certificate wouldn't prepare you for any analytics job.
por David D•
This course covers an overview of Data Analysis topics and skills. It serves as an introduction to the larger Google Professional Certificiate program and does not always go in depth ("we'll cover that later in the course.") The real gold is in the optional, additional readings and resources which provide practical application for basic SQL, Tableau, and RStudio skills. Videos are entertaining, informative, and inspiring to hear from data analysts who are in the field. I have no experience in the field and explanations were broken down well so I was able to easily follow along.
por Juan A•
I just finished the course and I really enjoyed it. This course covers the basic concepts of Data Analysis, it gives you the basic knowledge you need about these topics, also you will get a breif showcase of all of the tools that will be used in later courses of this certificate (SQL, Excel and Visualization). I liked that they were constantly inviting students to participate in forums and learn from others experiences and points of view. If you're already experienced in this subjects the course provides a speed-track that you can take to validate you knowledge and move forward.
Great course to start with the beginnings or basics in data analytics. Learned a lot in this course, thanks to google and coursera for this one. Data driven decision making is an art and I absolutely enjoyed being a part in this course.

I just loved attending this course. It made me very happy and discover that I know some skills that are high valued in the market nowadays. Thank you so much Coursera and Google for this opportunity!!!! 8:-)
