Practical scenario that demonstrate the statistical operations. Easy to understand and follow. Some mathematics details are skipped but it should be OK to look them up again afterwards.

Thank you for the great course! I really enjoyed taking it and was surprised to see how I underestimated Excel's capacity before. The instructors are great. Hope to further deepen my knowledge of excel in the next courses.

This was a great experience. In the course you are exposed to somehow complicated subjects in an easily approachable way. The presenters are very clear very focused and to the point

I think the content is a good start if you really do not know anything about basic analytics. It was a bit too basic for me, but that's okay. The examples are well structured and easy to follow. However, I do think the price of 99 dollars for a certificate is extremely high and completely not worth it. The content is only a few videos containing some simple explanations (without going into much detail) and a simple test without a grade. I have done similar test before and payed maybe a few euros for those "certificates". 99 dollars is way too much for this simple course.

So far the course is good, covered the basics of stats and how they can be used in excel. So far the course tells how to use/leverage existing tools with respect to data science.
