Positive Feedback:

I took the first course from the specialization and found it helpful. It is an introductory level course and that is why it was not that difficult rather easy to digest. The lecture videos were awesome and the assignments were quite challenging yet fun to solve (Danielle L, ★★★★★).

I believe the first course that is in the specialization has very clear, concise, thorough yet challenging information. It took me some time to get a grip of the concepts taught but it was worth the effort (Mandy H, ★★★★★).

Just finished the second course from the specialization and I am really impressed with its content. The instructions are clear and concise and the course gives practical insight on how one can communicate effectively in an analyst role (Christopher S, ★★★★★).

The third course in the specialization is the one I took as it had content that I needed to understand. I think this course was a good refresher on basic functions in google sheets. With that, it also gives you a great introduction to SQL. Indeed it was worth taking the course (Matthew B, ★★★★★).

I have taken the fourth course and would say that this instructor was the best. She was so clear in explaining all the concepts. The way she explained all the concepts was very engaging. Now after completing this course, I believe my search to find a better job would end soon (Senaka S, ★★★★★).

The “Analyze data to answer questions” course was very interesting as it gave me a good understanding of more complex SQL queries and data processing. The course has taught me new tools that have helped me perform well (Nicholas L, ★★★★★).

Taking the sixth course from the specialization was very challenging yet engaging at the same time. I knew learning Tableau was not an easy task but still, I wanted to learn what it is and this course helped me achieve that. I can say with the help of this course, I got the confidence to take my plunge into PowerPoint. So, a big thanks to the instructor for this thorough course (Tom G, ★★★★★).

The “Share data through the art of visualization” course was very informational but also very challenging for someone who has to work two jobs. The course was so interesting that I had to make time to complete it. And I can say that this course was so far the best online course that I have completed (Rosana FSDS, ★★★★★).

Negative Feedback:

Taking the fourth course from the specialization didn’t turn out to be what I was hoping for. The lecture videos were good but I was expecting more SQL coding assignments and projects from the course (Pouya T, ★★★☆☆).

I took the first course and believe it was lengthy for no reason. The instructor could have condensed all the content into 2-3 weeks but he didn’t and that is why the course felt quite basic and unreasonable (Sandy L, ★★☆☆☆).

The third course in the specialization was good but the accent of the instructor was very difficult to understand which made me lose interest in completing the course (Shreya N, ★★☆☆☆).
