I like and appreciate courses provided through Coursera.This course is very interesting and valuable for those whose jobs do have relevance with data management .God bless Coursera and Duke University
The course deserves a 5-star rating because: (1) content is relevant, (2) the professor is concise and possesses great teaching skills, and (3) the learning modules are applicable to daily problems.

I think that this course was a great overview, but it wasn't that clear on how it all tied together and i don't think there was enough practice given.

It is great for learning statistics, but not so much Excel. Also, it doesn't prepare you very well for the final project, so pay attention to class!

Week 4 is chaotic, it leaves much to be desired. It's quality is far a way from what it could be expected for a course endorsed by Duke University.

Course only drilled down on specific aspects of excel that were inclined to regression analysis which is just one aspect used in business analysis

I found it difficult to understand some concepts and felt like some of the concepts required for some assignments were not covered deeply enough.

This course is good, but I feel it's too difficult. It would be good to suggest 'optional' prerequisite course if there is any. Thanks Dr. Egger.

The course is good. However, the name might be slightly misleading since the major emphasis is on statistics and probability, rather than Excel.

The scribble of the calculation is not helpful for learning. Would like to know more about how to build the models in excel through the videos.

Good material but short explanation and no detail exercises and solution practices before the final test makes the test a bite hard to resolve.

I am a student with a computer background. The course was good but for me, I needed more explanations on statistics and business metrics.

Needs a more cohesive approach. Topics seems to be unorganized and don't follow a good pattern. Concepts taught are very helpful though.
This course has a lot to do with math and statistics and I find it really hard to follow especially when it comes to the final project.
Quiz is very difficult without mentor explainations, lots of stuff wasn't covered in lecture videos. Honestly a very frustrating class

The title of this course does not suggest the topics that are covered in this course. Anyway, the topics covered are useful .

A little more emphasis should be given to the explanation of basic concepts so that beginners can also understand it easily.
by Weiliang P•
The whole course has very little about excel, rather about aweful a lot of data models. The course title is very misleading.
by Despoina E•
It's quite interesting, but definitely not a beginners one. I'm put off quite a bit by the exclusively financial examples
by Milan M•
after the second week I droped this course...I thought it will include excel and economics knowledge but was very wrong..
by Avulapati N•
The course content is great and the instructor also explained concepts well!
The course assignments are outdated tough.

The later part of the sessions lacks practical applicability and it is more abstract, that I find difficult to relate
It's too advanced for people with no experience in statistics and sometimes too abstract to relate with
by B. A N•
The course was informative but needed more examples to understand the concepts like the final example.
by Camilo E S C•
Really bored... now, I want to change and they charge me more for that. what a bad service, just money
by Izayas R J•
The importance of this course is huge. However, I did miss better explanation from some topics...
by Santiago Y A•
It's more statistics than Excel itself, wich is good but I think the name doesn't fit to it
