Great course to understand the basic knowledge which a data analytics need to have. And improve the communication skill by effectively questioning. i like the reflection part, it forces me to be serious and focus on every lesson :D

Good overview course on asking questions. I would like some better examples in the videos; the ones included are very superficial (e.g., use cases, examples). I understand confidentiality with companies, but some examples are pretty light.

Content of the course is well presented and easy to follow. Great course!!
However, the instruction for the Qwiklab exercise is quite unclear. It is difficult to differentiate between preparing to log into the lab and the exercise itself.

As a foundational phase in the data analysis process, this course was very helpful in developing the pathway ahead. I highly recommend this course as a way to develop better critical thinking, conflict resolution, and spreadsheet skills.

Easy to manage and enjoyed the videos with text underneath. As an ADHD person, managing material for classes can be difficult. The text underneath the video allows me to stay focused on the video by giving me two platforms of engagement.

Stunning explanations and guided instruction. Lays out a solid foundation for what is to come in the rest of the certificate. Can be a refresh or can be the 1st glimpse into data work and not skip a beat for either type of experience.

This course describes the asking phase of the data analytics process. The reason why I gave 5 star is that it will not only help you in your career but also you can start apply in your daily life and the way they explained is awesome.
Great course. I had trouble accessing Sheets from Google. I could find the application but I could not create a new worksheet. I followed the instructions so I am not sure the specific issue. Other than that the course was great.
