This was a tough course especially for those not competent in excel. However, I have learned a lot on how to use functions in excel and data analysis. Was tough but enjoyed it
The course is very straight to the point and very hands-on.
I came with no prior knowledge in forecasting, and went with many takeaways.
Thanks to the teacher who is very bright !
It gets harder as the course goes. But very well explained. I wish there was a bit more explanation for the reasoing behind the fourmula. Peer review is sometime questionable...
