This gives a great foundation for Data Analytics. The instructors do skim over everything and I would have liked more detail but most of what I wanted to find out more about I was able to find online.
i love the course as it helped me understand the importance of asking the right questions, understanding the problem and expectations of stakeholders and impotance and the right way of communicatilon.

Great foundational course for those that are just getting into Data Analytics or for those like myself that just want to get a refresher. I technically could have skipped and went straight to Course 2 after the assessment but I'm glad I did it anyways! It helped me to refocus and reminded me of things that can fall to the wayside over time. I feel renewed and ready to tackle the next!!!

An excellent refresher for some topics for me and at the same I learned new things, as well. I like the combination of videos, readings, and additional reading resource materials. Quizzes and challenges are a great way to review and think about what I have learned. It is also good that you explain why the answer is correct or wrong. Looking forward to proceeding to the next course.

This course has helped me develop a better understanding of data analysis and spark my interest in becoming a data analysis someday. The instructor explains things in a very direct and easy-to-understand manner. Also, the extra notes/materials given are very useful. So far, it's been fun learning the course and I can't wait to complete the other courses of the professional certificate.

Very well designed and well structured course. The course used reinforcement learning technique by repeating the most important concept of this course. The most important concept of this course was to understand the six phases of data analysis. These phases in chronological order are Ask, Prepare, Process, Analyze, Share, and Act. See I Remember these which mean the course is awesome.

I enjoyed this course. I am new to data analytics but very familiar with excel sheets, databases, and SQL so it was pretty quick and easy for me to get through. I especially enjoyed the information on the different types of analytics jobs and the insights into how to interview. I am hoping that through this I can get more hands on with what day to day life is like for a data analyst.

Finally, I'd like to express my gratitude to all of the teachers who contributed to this resource. This is the most comprehensive data analytics course I've ever taken. While getting the correct answer after a quiz is fantastic, it would be even better if the following line included a link to the information, when answer is incorrect, as some of the answers were difficult to find.

I could not believe how important this course has been. It was more than just a refresher of the basics but helped me building the mindset of how data is been viewed by analysts and the stories of different people of how they viewed data in life ignited my passion for data analysis. It has been the right decision to opt for this course and is more than what I initially expected.

Provide you good understanding on data collection and analysis. Also touch on a little bit on SQL.
The course is relatively easy for me, probably only provides 20% of new knowledge to me, as my previously work experience requires to read data and make data driven decisions. If you previous professional experience has nothing to do with data this may be helpful course to take!

A great introduction to the fundamentals of Data analytics. The course gave a basic introduction of what a data analyst is, what are the skills that an analyst would require and what are the opportunities available for a Data analyst. The course does not require any background knowledge or experience related to Programming or Analytics. A must recommended course for beginners

Good for an introduction. Many terms and steps are very subjective; they give a good structure for those who have never done any data analysis and could fill in gaps if you work differently—overall good course, clear and easy to understand. If you are already familiar with data analysis, you can very easily do all quizzes. Some might require to double-check a lecture or two.
por Harsh P•
Its a great course, it also encourages you on completing every course on the way of completing the course, which is very essential, and the Test and Quiz and the Hands ON experience Decision Prompts, they are the real deal, they help you to pen down or write down all the important concepts with the help of a given scenario, which helps to remember the concepts much easily.
por William O•
I must say, it starts at the very basics and they take their time in teaching you the foundations which was very insightful. As a beginner to Data analysis ,it is made easier to understand what and how it works. I took my time in understanding everything i could since this is the basics to what a data is and i suggest you do not rush this if you are just start out as well.
por Molly G•
The class was very informative and basic. I liked that they broke the data analytics process down to six different phases, which gave me a clear structure of the procedures a data analyst would go through when handed an assignment. I found the format of this class to be engaging and interesting. The stories shared by Google employees were relevant and informational.
por Jason F•
Course 1 was great, I love how thorough and easy to follow along with the reading material and the terms taught. I also loved watching their videos and testimonials of the google employees telling us their experiences and insights. I love how google had the transcripts below the video as you can follow along as they are speaking, as you can take notes on the sides.

This is a great introduction to the world of data. Tony is an amazing instructor, I loved his style of discussing the topics. After finishing the course, I now have a very clear idea about the data analysis process, the different kinds of tools and technologies related to it and the different kinds of jobs that data analysts can do. It's a very enlightening course.
por Rinshad K•
The introduction to the data analysis process gives a context and fresh perspective to look at the problems in an organized manner. The brief videos by the experts at Google defining the roles in industry and discussing their struggles at the beginning of their career is very relatable to the initial struggles with the course and gives a confidence to move forward.
por Laura G•
The format, pace, and instructors are top notch! There were plenty on UX features that made learning and navigating easy to do. I really enjoyed the reflection work in the course, it was helpful to use my own words and experiences to solidify knowledge. I also liked the hearing from the different Googlers who shared their personal data analytical experiences.

I personally enjoyed learning & taking the first steps towards the Data anlytics Path. What I truely admired about the course was the fact that it really covered the very basic aspects of Data (including tables, excel, SQL etc.) which makes it accessible to every individual who wants to learn even if they have literally no understanding and background of Data.
por Steven G•
This course was fun to interact with, even I knew the tools of an data analyst it is very intriguing to learn about how google sets the process to be an analyst. Very pragmatic and straight forward without being overly seriously in providing the information to the students. I am looking forward to the reaming modules as this made me want to learn more about it.

I am looking forward and ready to tackle the next course.
