In the context of the "Microsoft Professional Program for Data Science", this course is somewhat a waste of time. The whole cours is centered around excel, which doesn´t make much sense in the above context in my opinion. This course could be usefull, if they would teach it in R or Python and maybe use excel for some calculations or visualizations. The theory videos of the first 2-3 modules are ok, then they are getting pretty fast and drift away from the data science context. I´m doint BI/Data Science for a couple years now and never had to organize a survey, why do I need to know the problems which can occure by "randomly" picking people for it?! One could probably skip all theory videos and just watch the excel cases of Mr. Winston, because the examples are much better in those. If you´re doing the "Microsoft Professional Program for Data Science", I reccomend to do the course "DAT203.1x - Modul2" before this one. There you get the real statistics basics you need to know with good examples.

Microsoft should give Wayne a medal for his great work on demonstrating complicated theory using demos in Excel.He is the one who did the dirty work and get complaints while Liberty is the voice which encouraged people and make problems seem easier. This course is a bit hard, quiz is a bit difficult, and exam questions are just endless. But, it worth to study.
