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!

A very comprehensive course, especially good for beginners into the world of data analytics! There is never enough time to cover everything, so I would suggest if you're interested in data analytics, pair this course with some other courses in applying basic statistics in R/Python and taking a course in using Python (R is only covered). The need to be fluent in multiple languages, familiar with statistical concepts and different data visualisation approaches will be something you'll come across more frequently in your data analytics career journey.

I completed this 8 course data analytics program primarily intended for Junior Data Analyst. I was curious how program was setup and what skills were taught, preparing for a career within data analytics. The program is well designed around keywords of Ask, Prepare, Process, Analyze, Share and Act and would gladly recommend it as a stepping stone into the field of analytics. Reflecting from senior experience level, I was still able to pick up new perspectives and good knowledge sources which complement my current skillset.

This is a great course...It has definitely driven me to take my professional growth very seriously.
I am now more aware and intentional about my career, the path is not completely clear but at least I feel like I am one step closer to getting there. A big thank you to the Google and Coursera Teams for working together to make this available to the world. I am grateful to have been a part of this. I hope to work on the second case study when I have some free time. Thank you all once again. I believe it was worth it.

I cannot thank Google and Coursera enough for making this amazing Professional Certificate. Not only did the course guide me through the skills needed for becoming a Data Analyst but also gave a broader view of all the other roles linked to this Job profile. From guidance for building portfolio to getting ready for job interviews. I will treasure all the knowledge and experience gained through this course. And also huge thanks to the googlers who took their time in making and presenting the videos.

The Google Data Analytics professional certificate has opened my eyes to the field of data analytics, something I was completely ignorant to.
I really enjoyed the enthusiasm of the lecturers, and the wide range of learning opportunities they provided us with, from quizzes to videos to practical activities and other resources.
For those thinking of taking this course, give it a go, there is nothing more rewarding than persevering and completing something you've put a lot of time and effort into!

It is an absolute eye opener. I wasn't really confident with my knowledge, and didn't know how it would merge together, but this course made it so that I could work on a real life problem while testing everything I have learned until now. It has helped me a lot, and I am really grateful for all the work that has been put on it, I would recommend to at least have a look at the various Cases Studies that are proposed because they're really interesting, and will build up some confidence in you.

I can't seem to put in words how this course has empowered me and literally even though I have not started to venture out into the job hunting, with the skills I have gained , I am sure I can crack something. Thanks to GOOGLE for this great course setup, which was perfect in every way for every googler cum beginner. If invested properly in the entire course, you are sure to benefit from it. Plus the last capstone project is like the icing on the cake which will surely help in gaining a job.

This course has been instrumental in helping me step foot into the data driven world. Although a part of data for a long time since I started working, I never realised there were so many ways and tools that could help me expedite my analytical skills. Also, I have gathered the fundamental approaches in moving ahead with career opportunities in data analytics roles as well. Thank you Team Google for the efforts that you have put in together to curate a course of such stature.

This is the best certificate program/course I have taken on Coursera to date (I have completed over 20 courses). What makes this course different is the breadth of material covered. Not only did it cover the technical skills of a data analyst, but it covered practical skills, behavioral skills, job-hunting skills (putting together a portfolio, interview questions, etc.). I am definitely going to go back over the lessons again, as I feel the time spent is well worth it!

Google is so generous in their courses. They won't just give you completion certificate, they've also put up a third party that will affirm your qualification after completing their course. They also provided free access to platforms that are supposed to be with fee. And best of all, they also connected you to their partners so that the possibility of getting hired is so high! It's as if they've already prepared everything for you. Thank you Google! Thank you Coursera!

As a newcomer to the world of data analysis, I have to say I was very impressed with this course. It was presented in a way that I could understand and I learned a lot. Some aspects were overwhelming but with a little determination and review of the videos and readings, I was able to succeed. I will definitely be looking to add to the skills I have acquired from this course in the future. I feel this is a great start to a career in the data analysis field.
by Ingrid C•
Amazing! Just it! It took me 6 months but I finally got the certificate! Ye-ah!
Along this path Google instructors were fantastic, the subject and explanations were on the point. I can say I concluded this certificate with all confidence about what a Data Analyst does and this is what I want in my life, this is the right career for me.
If you have doubts, do not have, just do it and be happy about your choices, 'cuz you tried and it is the most important.

I have chosen DIVVY bikes as the capstone project and I have no regrets. Working with real data allows you to check on yourself what a job in a company like DIVVY bike sharing can be.
I have the most favorable impression of this online course. We studied the most necessary topics for future analysts of the data, the course materials were logically organized, and I could only dream of teachers at this level.
Thanks a lot to all staff of this best course!

SQL, EXCEL, PYTHON, R are statistical tools very common and languages very useful for any data driven decision and in order to test our hypothesis. This certificate is very useful to connect again with data and gives you tips to create a professional portfolio that might land a job. If your intuition tingles everytime you see a csv or a spreadsheet, then enrollat this certificate because it is a very wise decision.

OMG!!!!! This cause was in-depth and challenging. I fought my way through it to generate the requisite charts, however, I got stuck along the way. I will definitely keep working at it because the information was insightful, detailed, practical and thorough.
My only regret was the scholarship forced me to rush the course and complete in 3 months but it was well worth-it!
A course well put together by Google.

I have enjoyed the course. Although, I already have a lot of these skills through work and self education, it is nice to have those skills validated by this course.
This is an awesome introductory course that is a great course for ground work. Up to this point, I have not been introduced to Google's Six Phases of Data Analysis which has been helpful for thinking about how to work as a data analyst.
by JOSEPH R A•
The Case Study seemed straightforward, but I lacked computer space and power to exploit fully the power of SQL. besides i lacked money to rent the space for database querying. I relied heavily on spreadsheet functions and tools to clean, organize, calculate, summarize for analysis and visualize the data. In the end, I offered credible insights that could lead to solutions of the business task.

Excellent course!! This course gave me the confidence to continue my path onwards in pursing a data analytics career. I now have a porfolio that I am proud of (was working on one while I was in the program) and will be starting a data analytics masters program soon. Thanks for offering this helpful course Google! Plus the resources afterwards to ensure that your students truly do succeed :)
by Bruce B•
Wow! This capstone project has taught me mostly about the things that I failed to learn well throughout the course as well as having the right tool for the job (laptop-wise). Thank-You to everyone that had a hand in producing this training. It was well worth my time and effort and represents a place for me to return to in order to keep working on my data analytics skills. Cheers!

I have been able to apply a lot of what I have learnt, and I'm truly grateful for the whole experience. I feel very confident to take up a new position as a data analyst to apply what I have learnt, and to keep on learning. I will explore Google Big Interview to build on my interview skills.
You have made the technical aspects of data analysis easy to understand. Thank you Google!

Great Foundational Course. What I love about the course was every aspect related to topic is discussed appropriately. The tutors keep motivating us. They made sure we keep a track of our learning by maintaining a learning log. Enough support resources are povided and the lesson plan includes revison to the previous topic to maintain the connection with the topic.

This course has been a great introduction and hands on learning experience for analytics. I came in already with an analytical job role, but I learned so much from the course. It was a very hands on experience and even allowed me to pursue even more education through the links and accesses this course provides, so I could take it upon myself to go the extra mile.

It is a good course for beginning in DA. That being said, I would encourage others who take it to really push themselves when working in the case study. Make sure to thoroughly work through it and try to come up with your own ideas. It's easier to do the case studies they provided, but more beneficial for you to do your own with data you are more interested in.
I really loved it and learnt a lot. During my career I have worked with data in several projects, but my knowledge of data analysis was simply learning-by-doing. This certificate has allowed me to structure and organize concepts and techniques, adding valuable extra insights of data analysis concepts, platforms and pages. I totally recommend it. Many thanks!

This Capstone serves as a great way to practice all the skills you have gained in the previous courses.It also helps you to get started on working on a data analysis project on your own.You can learn the different parts of a project, how to plan and proceed further etc. Its a nice and quick way to understand about data analysis projects.
