Sobre o curso

The simple spreadsheet is one of the most powerful data analysis tools that exists, and it’s available to almost anyone. Major corporations and small businesses alike use spreadsheet models to determine where key measures of their success are now, and where they are likely to be in the future. But in order to get the most out of a spreadsheet, you have the know-how to use it. This course is designed to give you an introduction to basic spreadsheet tools and formulas so that you can begin harness the power of spreadsheets to map the data you have now and to predict the data you may have in the future. Through short, easy-to-follow demonstrations, you’ll learn how to use Excel or Sheets so that you can begin to build models and decision trees in future courses in this Specialization. Basic familiarity with, and access to, Excel or Sheets is required....

This course has made me understand cost accounting, has provided a fresh perspective on how to solve some of the challenges i had with management accounting and as a bonus, made me love maths again :)

So many tools that I knew existed and have tried to use the How-To's to learn how they work and until the Prof takes you through them one-at-a-time, they never make sense. Great Stuff!

The questions on the quizzes were very confusing and marked answers incorrect despite being right. Quiz content should be improved, the instructor was good though.

Definitely there is some room for improvements. The course content is great but the quizzes are focused on more on Excel syntax than actual problem solving.

A bit boring – way too basic. And I expected it to be a bit more systematic – simple (and quite fragmented) examples around one case... Could be a bit more.

It's pretty straightforward and teaches important concepts, however, its quizzes are confusing at times. Some of the classes felt kinda useless.

This course is very brief and basic introduction to spreadsheets. It was surprising that the "pivot tables" was never mentioned in this course.

The course covers all the necessary theoretical basica of statistics and modeling but isn't very helpful in terms of practical implementation.

Is not as bad as I thought at the beginning (the first two weeks). It gets better the third week. I think it needs some improvement though.

I would like to be able to view the answers to the quiz questions that I answered incorrectly after I have passed the quiz.

Videos and Quizzes are great to introductions but modeling small examples on Excel would have helped anchor some notions.

Would prefer to have the actual excel template in order to have a first hand experience on how to apply the concepts.

Although the course content was good and helpful. A more detailed explanation would have helped provide more context.

Some of the answers to quiz needs specific text answers. I believe even though the answer is right, the quiz come out

Bit of a large step between very simple weeks 1 and 2 and more complex weeks 3 and 4 but mostly easy to follow

I enjoyed the difficulty of the quizzes, but found that the material could've been explained in more detail.

More extensive and complex problem are required on use of Monte Carlo method

Slides did not add value. I prefer the slides summarizing the lecture so that I can keep them on file.

It seems to me like the course could have like 2 or 3 times more video concerning tasks required

por Sergio D

The course itself is interesting and can be done in 3-4 hours in total max. Slides are useless.

Wharton's online MD can not have a course so poorly develop (lectures vs quiz vs material)

por Silvio J R G

It was a good course. The quizzes should be corrected since some questions are ambiguous.

por Rahul R

In my opinion, this course is more information oriented rather than knowledge oriented.

por Douglas J

Should really show you how to build a model piece by piece, but overall very useful.

por Antonio L

Much of the lecture content is not included in the readings, only in the videos.

The slide set is too brief, was expecting more details with examples & visuals
