I just finished the 2nd Course in the Google Data Analyst course - even though I have experience in the field, this course reminded of areas that I should focus on and work to strengthen my skills in.
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.

I personally feel disheartened and let down by this course so far in which I have invested so much of time till now and all we are learning is how to open an excel and use functions! If this course was meant to be that basics and theoretical the team should have put up that information in the beginning. In the second course apart from asking the right questions no part of the rest of the course made a lot of sense. The team has to know that whole world organizations doesn't work the way Google does. Also, the lectures regarding meeting ethics and e-mail mannerism is completely out of context and are basics that is taught to students in schools at least I know about India. I had taken up the course of learning more tools and real analyst work than passing exams based on theoretical questions. Seriously disappointed!

I did not like having to wait 24 hours to re-take the quiz I clearly failed 3 times in a row. I had 24 hours to feel anxious, stressed, and felt my confidence levels plummet. It would be great to have the option to have an abbreviated pause after failing the quiz 3 times. Maybe if the student views all the videos and materials for the incorrect questions, they then are given access to another round of tries. I literally feel so overwhelmed and anxious now that my mometum was interrupted and I couldn't utilize the time block I reserved to do my classes today because I was locked out. Lastly, the questions on the quizzes didnt feel as clear as the precious 1 and 2 classes.

Somewhat in awe that this course is so bad. The Google Data Certificate programe feels like it was made for 5th or 6th graders. It's completely preoccupied with basic vocab words. Examples and descriptions are incredibly vague and provide little insight. The pace is agonizingly slow. Videos and slides are underwhelming and are basically just a 'vlog' with no visualizations. I switched to the John Hopkin's Data Science course and after a week am already introduced to R. For comparison, the JH course feels like a Freshman college course (you just have to get past the robot voice).

As I aim to finish the whole 8-part course, I already regret all the times wasted on watching talking head videos of Google employees sharing their stories from meetings and promoting Google Ads, compared to later parts where people with actual skill share this skill (such as in Analyze Data to Answer Questions). I had to spend hours and hours chewing through of filling, including some total nonsense stuff as how to organize meetings and who to email, instead of learning SQL functions or real BI.

I'm only rating this way because I can't rate the entire Google Data Analytics Professional Certificate. I just wasted 6 months on this course with the promise I could get a job in data analysis. Well, I can crush data analysis! But my lack of background in math is proving to make me unhirable. I wish I'd known this before wasting time and money on this program. Now I'm 6 months behind training for another career.

Too much theory and little technical: I know these courses are aimed at people with a wide range of skill levels and that the ideas behind the works are important. But, there are just too many repeated and bloated basic info and not enough technical "Data Analytics" skills to make good use of my time and prepare me for a real analytic job.

Most of the content is theoretical in nature. The explanation of the clinical/practical part is not so good. I faced a lot of technical problems with QuickLab. The instructor speaks as if all audiences are fluent in English and can understand everything being said. In general, I did not enjoy this course at all.

I will not ever take another coursera course again.
It is too difficult to come back to the certificate you are working on. They need to instantly fire all their web developers and hire somebody that understands how busy people work. This is awful.

Wrong name has been detected in my certificate. I tried a lot to find the right link for get my name corrected but could not find any support for this. Unfortunately I've give this one rating so that someone could read my review and help me fix my name.

you told me I can do speed track, I did and I passed all test, I was supposed to get my certificate, why it shows that it is in progress ?????? Is this a JOKE ?
by Daniel O•
If I'm honest not very useful/new stuff here. All seems a bit basic, a bit too basic for a course like this. All information can be found online for free

The content of the course was not as interesting as the first one. The approach was too theoretical and vague.
by Ganesh R•
There is no option to mark the course complete when I finish auditing it.

I have completed the course, yet I have not been issued a certificate

This is not worthy. Too basic which will not help to attend interview
by Orlando G R•
Unless your common sense is quite bad, I would not recommend this.
by Ankush K•
Worst instructor and totally boring and time wasting course.

I expected something more practical/hands-on.
