The length of the video lectures are just right and the numbers of exercises or quizzes are just right. Learned a lot of new things about Excel's functionality. A huge step from the Essentials course.
Wow, I have no word to say about this course. Its video content, Structure is awesome. The tutor is good. Week assignments and quizzes are always ready to make our practice and make concept permanent.

The Course is very good. The instructions are crystal clear. Though for some part like the attached workbook to be done has some issues like missing data or different versions to my Excel. I used Excel 2016 but every function that needs to be put always uses semicolon instead of comma and decimal using dot instead of comma which sometimes making the answer wrong despite it is actually right.

The contents covered in this course has increased my efficiency in working with Excel. The course design is neat and the instructors are great at both teaching and presenting. My only issue with the course is that the quizzes are not designed in a way that makes the students use their own problem-solving skills as the questions practically outline all the steps required to find the answer.

I really appreciate your class. I feel like I'm learning a lot. Excel is pretty amazing.
There is a question on the final quiz about a cell changing color, and it was very hard to tell if the color was yellow or orange. And I do wish there was better explanations of answers for the final. I still have no idea how I got the wrong answer on a few of the questions.

After following the course on Excel Fundamentals of Data Analysis of the same teachers, there was some overlap in the material. However, the repetition helped me to consolidate the skills and apply them in different contexts. Again, very informative and well-explained, and it was great to learn about the rich functionalities of pivot charts and tables!

Absolutlety brilliant instructors and content. I have started to put a lot of the skills learnt into use already, this goes to show how revelant the content is to my current work. Concepts were clearly and thoroughly explained. The only downside is that I did notice a few recent questions on the discussion forums are yet to be answered.

Some of the final exam questions are confusing as to which table they want you to create a pivot from. That needs to be a bit clearer. Otherwise this course is super clear in explaning how to do things. They also give you all the short cuts so you pick them up very fast. The instructors are clear in why we do things.

It would be nice to have more feedback when answers are not correct. As this gets more difficult, I feel like I could use more feedback to point me in the right direction (vs "That's not quite right" etc) Other than a few minor glitches with the Coursera site being down, it is a good course and I would recommend it.
by Edoardo T•
I really liked the course structure as well as how information was taught. Easy to follow and great practice exercises. I would really recommend it to peers.
A small tip to improve the practice exercises would be being able to download the instructions instead of opening the website all the time.
Thanks a lot!

I was having some issues with a couple of the assessment spreadsheets, which delayed the process, and I feel like there should be an option included to contact someone who can address issues like this, but overall the teachers are amazing and the videos are clear. I feel like I've learned a lot.

During final assessment for weeks and overall course, some directions were unclear. They would be called one thing in the direction but another on the spreadsheet.
Ex. one question on the final assessment asking for "count of grade" but the excel sheet called this "Grades"

The material is good. I have learned so much. It could have been better if the Yvonne instructor spoke a little slower and proceeded with a little more time for slower learners. Prashan does a great job with the material. His explanations and timing are really great.

Excellent course and a perfect progression which one will be able to appreciate upon completion of the "Essentials" level. Looking forward to utilizing the learning in a real situation and going on to the next offering under this specialization. Kudos to the team!

The female lecturer moved a little too fast in her actions for simultaneous working, especially for a mac user where differences were not always explained and I had to go back a few times. The male lecturers pace was perfect. The course content is excellent

Very educational and I actually had fun completing the challenges. One opportunity would be more time focused on nesting functions, primarily FIND etc. I could have used more videos or practice quizzes to build a stronger foundation. Overall I enjoyed.
by Reinhard W•
One star is missing because a formular did not worked. Some Calc!xx formular to calculate the grade automatically in the final exam in the final marks sheet (column J), so I needed to use IF formulars to do the calcualtions - pretty bothersome
by Kuruvilla A•
A very comprehensive course with numerous case studies and multiple tools, tricks, practise sheets along the way to keep you on your toes. Highly recommended. Looking forward to completing Part II and maybe the Advanced Certification as well.
A very well structured course, which will help you to brush up your basics and will teach new fabulous thing about excels like different shortcuts, formula, functions which enhance your work on the professional front and will save your time

This course gave me an opportunity to strengthen my excel knowledge and skill. Many of the things I've learned, I have been able to apply directly to some of my job tasks. This course was fun but challenging, the videos are easy to follow.

I had successfully completed the first course, which was great, and expected the same from this course as well. It met my expectations. Learnt a lot. The course structure is well designed from basic to advance covering all the concepts.

Some of the excel downloaded has problems when I opened them to do the test.
For example, in the final assessment, I cannot do question 6 as there is no color in the cell.
I cannot do questions 8,9,10 as the check digit formula is wrong.
This course was very well put together and I greatly improved my Excel skills. That being said, more tutorials are needed to support Mac users. I regularly had to perform web searches to get the answers and support that I needed.

Esta herramienta de excel me ayudara a poder organizar todos mis datos de manera que al compartirlos con compaeros de trabajo exista un correcto entendimiento de los datos al igual que en los informes que se presenten en excel.
by Sagar P•
Course was very useful but I would have been a bit more happier if there was more extensive learning materials and the practice challenges were more in-depth. Quizzes/final assessment was appropriate level of difficulty.
by Ambra N•
Everything fantastic except for the final assessment of week 4 where I spent a lot of time because of a different language usage of Excel and the tutors didn't specify it! Fortunately the "Discussion Forum" helped me!

Es un curso muy provechoso, aprendí muchísimo; pero a veces es confuso. En las evaluaciones, las preguntas no son lo suficientemente claras y esto causa confusión, Por lo tanto conlleva a errar algunas preguntas.
