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 :)

The course is worth the time , the faculty teaches you about some complicated advance formulae with so much clarity and ease that even beginners can be pro in excel related to business and finance.

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.

Extremely shallow scraping of subjects. Many learning objectives were not even explained further than reading them off of a list of learning objectives.

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.

The course relied too much on excel demonstrations, so it was harder to keep track of concepts and take notes. Ok, but not great.

lectures were good , but was not sufficient enough to get the quiz answers. For that the video lectures need to be more thorough

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

Quiz's were more theoretical than practical, overall intermediate level and need prior basic knowledge of finance.

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.

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

Module 2 specifically was really cut down in comparison to the quiz taken.

felt a little unstructured

Coverage seems less and test questions have some vaguely worded questions that get you confused.

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

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