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.

In light of R or Python, doing statistical computing in excel is really time consuming and backward. The instruction might be OK, but I lost interest beginning of week 2 seeing how he build binary decision model in excel.

Lectures are messy, and assume more in-depth statistical knowledge than they have led-on in the course requirements. Quiz questions are also sometimes poorly explained and requires digging into the forums for corrections.

It is an okay refresher for Excel basics. But not a very good course for teaching you how to make a model using excel. The statistics and probability portions of the course were okay but definitely not taught very well.

Great class. However, there are some serious data mistakes in the projects. Please take the time to review and correct the errors throughout the course. It causes unnecessary confusion for the students.

Videos fine. Quizes impossible to understand unless you take previous courses and have time to go through forums and more extra staff. It takes a lot of time. Not suggested unless you have it.

I expected far more handy real life Excel examples, not to see a teacher speaking and writing stat formulas for hours.
The idea of this course is very good, it has some room for improvement.

This course is too focused on specific real world applications like confusion matrix and ROC curves that are very useful. I would rather spend more time learning actual features in Excel.

Final project almost impossible to do with material taught. Also, each lecture comes with an additional spreadsheet that needs to be studied. Material taught doesn't match material tested.
by Christian H•
Very confusing stuff, need better clarification in course description and the way the material is transmitted to the student need to be reconsidered
But very well made and interesting.

El curso no ense;a cosas prácticas en el análisis de la data. Además el enfoque es muy financiero, tomando en cuenta que no existe solamente el sector privado sino también el sector

Not quite the excel actually relevant to industrial requirements. had to leave the course mid way.
There are better Excel DA courses out there. Concept presentation was good though.
by Rebekah L•
Very little to do with Excel, mostly focused on statistics with brief overviews of how things could be done within Excel, but very little focus on actual Excel use and knowledge.

The lectures are poorly delivered. The quizzes are ambiguous. The files available for download are erroneous. It seemed the professor was not paid for this course. Stay Away!!
by Olga I•
I wish there were more quizes after each video to memorize the formulas and get a hold of them.
For the begginers this course is way too difficult to comprehend on their own.
by Hannah S•
Too much material, that moved too fast. Wasn't opportunity for enough feedback and explanation. I say this as someone who went to Duke and has taken similar classes at Duke!
by Ashish M•
The content of the course was good.
However, I did not like the presentation of the material, moreover such a topic would need to be covered by a longer duration course.

This is a high level course and the beginners cant adapt easily with the probability and statistics terms used.
A better way of teaching could have been used.
by Abdullah A M A•
The title is misleading .
This course has a little to do with excel , you could get some mathematical information but I do not think you will master anything

The transition is from easy to advanced. It gets really confusing, not sure if it's just me. I am not following the lessons anymore so I left the course.

I found Week 2: Binary Classification really confusing. It was just not clear. Specifics were not given. Definitions were not given. Poorly instructed.
by Nagraj N•
Course material is too heavy for a beginner. I would not be able to continue. For a new comer it is an heavy stuff taught like a brushing up course.
by Patricio L M•
Significant difference between the material covered during the class period and the examinations. It could be improved considerably. Thank you.
by Daniel R C•
Great idea. Unfortunately, the course is young and there were too many bugs to get past Week 2. Hopefully these will be finished my next session
by Kentaro H•
Very confusing. I passed this course but I felt like I didn't learn too much. I think they should include prerequisite for this course.

Was quite advanced and the topics weren't explained as well as I expected them to be .Overall, the course was below average.
