A useful training course for all fields and gives expanded thinking to find problems and solve them in the best correct ways. It can be said about a method that reaches the correct thinking in life.
This course is a must have in order to be confident about yourself in your search of a new career or to position yourself as an astute Junior Data Analyst. The learning experience is phenomenal!

Great first step to jump in your career.
The course itsself is very well made and thourough, however I wish there was some way to interlap or refresh ones knowledge and skills from what you learned in the previous courses into whatever current stage one is in, so that the previous information and skills are retained better. Also, the capstone project was quite interesting.I feel that there was a big gap between what ive actually learned from the course and being able to complete the capstone on my own, however, that does force you to find the solution on your own, through the use og googling and forums, which is good and what they teach you, but i didnt walk away with the feeling that "now i can build on this foundation", but more like "i have now little foundation which i will need to add to in order to know just the basics".

This was an amazingly comprehensive course with generally superb diverse instruction and thoughtful design around how best to get persons taking the course to engage and produce. Long, so it's not for the swift but for those willing to endure... I as an intermediate analyst (at best) found it to be a restorative challenge although the third-party-esque lab assignments were disruptive to the momentum and less rewarding, sometime due to some malfunction. That said, I would recommend this course to my colleagues and trainees in data analytics/science world.

A fair amount of practical and theoretical content to help the process in data analysis, 4/5 stars however as the first half was very introductory and quite repetitive leading into complex situations with no real guidance. Additionally if the course is more like a vocational training with more real-world situations and classwork It would be more beneficial as far as what you are leaving with after completion.

I am Ahmed from Egypt, I benefited greatly from this course and added more skills and it is focusing on the more theoretical part of the data analyst profession, but it is great that I would recommend it to any newbie in data analysis, it is a great start and good luck to everyone.

Good course for beginners, teaches you the basics of spreadsheets, SQL and R. But lots of learning has to be done own your own to really be proficient in any of these programs; you get exposed to the programs but you don't learn much of any one program.

What an Amazing journey I had. Choosing this course as my stating point in my data analysis career has been the best decision of my life. I was able to learn and acquire knowledge and insightful techniques on how to go about my Data Analysis work.

Was a little bit beginner level, but very solidly drils concepts around data, while building good habits around it. Course can be finished muc quicker than Coursera recommends, but it helps to take time and discover the readings by yourself.

This course is for those who are looking for a job. It is based on the interview correspondence and the learning so far. It was good that the methods and methods were explained in order of priority.

The capstone project and the information included were great. I honestly only wish we could have practiced more direct application of the concepts earlier in the program.
by Christopher B•
I enjoyed the course even though it started at a very basic level. For someone just starting out, this would be an excellent course to take.

Great course, easy to learn and follow through. Hoping Google will present another more advanced courses for Data analysis
by vinny r•
Very Good. Just a humble request to add Python Programming also in this course.
by Karenina R•
Many topics become so redudant when the videos and readings say the same.

Did not get the certificate even after complting the all 8 courses

Very Good Course for entry level and Data Analysis.
by Shawnee H•
Needs more information on SQL.
by Lemuel B•
I am disappointed I was unable to use SQL to merge separate data sets into one because of the data limits in Big Query.
by Nils R•
Wish there was more instructions on actual job hunting.
by Vince W•
Only R no SQL or Tableau

With this being a self-paced course it is easy to burnout with the basics being so easy familiar that once the true challenge of the new skills kick-in the course work can either pull you in or exhaust you. Working in RStudio was an excellent experience but I was completely unfamiliar with the topic so I struggled through that course for a while. The material wasn't presented any differently but I should have set myself reminders to complete the work. Overall, how the course is presented in evenly sized modules with not one course being overly difficult or wordy that the pace of completion makes me feel more confident in my ability to build the skills beyond the course. I began my career search and the job postings all make mention of skills or attributes that I have an understanding of. I think that in time this course will provide an ability to change careers.
This course not only pulls together everything introduced in the previous data analytics certificate courses but also gives the student the opportunity to apply them in a job seeking manner. At 60 years old I have interviewed for many jobs and found the advice provided in this course 'real world'. Perhaps a video dealing with anxiety is the only thing missing. The videos' interviewee was too calm and collected, too on the mark in my experience. Like a firefighter going into a blaze, interviews require practise, practise, practise, to dampen the effects of all the brain's alarm bells going off all at once. You may be skilled with SQL and R, but faced with your first face to face interview question suddenly everything goes blank.

This course is a great gateway into the world of Data Analytics (DA). It is well presented and organized with great instructors and presenters who give their professional and personal experiences as part of the lessons. This "personal" touch helped me, and I'm sure other learners, to feel like they could be successful in this field and made it less intimidating. One area I would improve is to give more opportunities to dive deeper into Tableau, SQL, and R and to give learners more instruction as to how to prepare, clean, organize, analyze, and visualize data using each of these software's. Thank you Google for creating a launching pad for people like me to dive confidently into this space!
