This gives a great foundation for Data Analytics. The instructors do skim over everything and I would have liked more detail but most of what I wanted to find out more about I was able to find online.

For some people, it could be very elementary. For absolute beginners, it is a great course. It clearly clarifies different type of data analysts in different industries, beginner can start to think about how to position themselves in the world of data analyst according to their interests. Some concepts are repeated over different videos which I appreciate, as it helps solidify the fundamentals of data analysis. Speakers in the video tell their own story from their data analyst journey, it is encouraging and sheds positive lights.

I found the course to be very informative and extremly proficient in engaging the student in the learning process. I was prepared when it was time to take the quizzes and exams, having the open book learning style is great for those whom never had prior knowledge of what a Data Analysis does!
I would not say that I have retained or mastered each tool, process or technique in this first course material but, I plan to finish what I started and it's interesting so I'm intrigued enough to go back and master each chapter!

I used this course mainly as a refresher as I already am familiar with spread sheets and sql, I really appreciate the testing process the questions asked bring out the best out of your knowledge and answer combining your personal skills as well. The instructor Tony gave the lecture in a very understandable way. On the whole I find one flaw the course didn't instruct how to install SQL which is a little bit of a negative because some students find it difficult to install it. On every other part the training is first class.

It's very interesting course, it relates my experience, education with many concepts and ideas such as: data usage, importance, and power, data analysis, informed-decision making, data analyst roles & responsibilities, data actionable insights, thinking analytically, visualization tools, querying basics... and much more.
At first, I was a little bit hesitant whether to enroll or not, because the subject seemed unfamiliar. I didn't conceive at the beginning how close I could be and how much the course might be interesting.

Great course for everyone , easy to understand learning made fun while getting the real work done.
As a beginner i am able to understand the terms with ease and i am learning the skills to be a data analyst. The design and the navigation of the course is easily understandable and makes the course even more interesting and motivates one to continue
I would definitely take more courses with Coursera, I like the learning structure that caters for everyone , It helps me explore my options and understand my learning style

I really enjoyed this course. It was well formatted and easy to follow. The videos along with the written transcripts are fantastic. The only item that I found confusing was understanding how to contact class mates. Every time I tried to find people out of the thousands who took this course, I just got lost. It would be great if the entire section could be simplified. Perhaps break the number of people down into smaller groups? Thank you for making this course, I really enjoyed it and cant wait to work in the field.

At first I thought it's of no use to me as it's only talking and no learning about the stuff but as I proceeded and completed this course I realized that this is the real foundation of Data Analytics. This courses teaches you about what exactly is data analytics?, what are the steps you need to follow in order to become a successful Data Analyst, things and skills you need to learn and work upon, it helps you give you a insight of your life as a Data Analyst, how things are gonna be, how to overcome roadblocks.

This course is a good overview and basic introduction to data analytics. It seems like a lot of negative reviews are based on the perceptions of those who already have some data experience and are looking to brush up on their skill set. Yes, a lot of the information is elementary. However, this is designed to reach various levels of education - including individuals who have no data experience. If you already have experience you will breeze through with a refresher, if not, you'll get the introduction you need.

I found this course very informative and enjoyable, with real-life examples and application. Having the information broken into smaller chunks (e.g., 5-minute videos) was very helpful. I also very much enjoyed the section on fairness in data analysis and loved the fact the presenters in general were different ages, and genders, and nationalities. The quizzes and self-reflection exercises helped reinforce the knowledge and also provided additional real-life scenarios of data analytics application. Thank you!

Great content for zero background in data like me. The course touches on programming languages just a little, not too much, but leaves an excitement for what's next. English subtitles really help me understanding the speakers better as I'm not a native English speaker, so thumb up for that. I love to feel the energy of the speakers, but there are also times when I can feel that they are tired of speaking and recording. Anyway, analyzing data is fun, and I'll keep learning until the end. Thanks, staff team.

I loved this course. It is set up in a great way that introduces the concepts in a fun way to investigate and then it progresses into building some technical skills to put to use that prior knowledge. And I love how the questions on the tests are a bit sneaky in that they actually make you think with how they are worded to see if you really understand the concepts. You can't just go back and review the notes you had written down. You have to understand the material to do well. I can't wait to keep going.

para personas como yo que no tenemos experiencia previa en ánalisis de datos, este es el curso perfecto. Es muy completo y te explican de manera didactica la logica dentras de esta profesion. Te explican los fundamentos y lo hacen a través de videos, lecturas, ejercicios practicos y exámenes. Logran que el conocimiento se interiorice de tal manera que el alumno aprenda y no solo memorice. Lo recomiendo para toda persona interesada en cambiar de carrera o en incluir Data Análisis en su set de habilidades

I took many courses online for the past few years. But, this course is simply awesome. I am a beginner and I don't know a small thing in the field of data. But now, I gained much knowledge in the field of Data Analytics. The instructors are also very good and one important this to note that I learned it from Financial Aid, they approved it easily. Thanks, Google and the Course Instructors for giving this awesome course. We'll use this knowledge in the future to solve many problems too. Thanks again.

This has been a very useful introduction to data analytics! It has answered all the questions I was afraid to ask, and made me feel really enthusiastic about becoming a data analyst. I also very much appreciate the structure of the course, especially how it combines watching / listening, reading and writing. Special thanks to all people involved who are so passionate about their work - it makes me believe I can become one of these people some day (passionate about their work). Thank you!

The sessions are engaging and easy to get through due the the variety between video segments, readings and exercises. The structure of the course is fantastic and does a great job of taking the learner from a complete novice to having a great overview of the analytical process. Tony provides clear presentations throughout the course and I couldn't imagine someone better for introducing the course. I look forward to the remaining 7 components of the google data analytics certification!

I have to say, this was just an shocking first step into Data Analysis, how the instructor explains and grabs your attention regarding the importance of data to make actionable and data driven decision making is truly impressive, also I liked a lot is how the instructor welcomes every participant into the world of data analysis, is a top level introduction to every aspect of the process of DA, tools used and of course the best practices every data analyst should be accountable for.

This was an excellent introductory course, it covers all of the basics and I particularly loved the final test, where you are presented with a real world situation and has to answer questions about that, instructors where really clear whit the topics they where teaching specially the main instructor of this course, I'm not a native English speaker, and he was by far the easiest to understand and also the most passionate, I can't wait to try the other courses in this micro-degree

The course provides concrete concepts as a good background and short vdos which is good for non-native speaker in order to catch up.
Sometimes quizes assign to write an little essay but mostly question. Usually, writing an essay takes time for me. This causes me difficulty to estimate the time to finish weekly assignment. I would like to know a type of an assignment whether questions or writing essays. However, if it doesn't provide, it's still o.k. Thank you very much indeed.

This course was easy to follow. Easy to juggle while being a stay at home mom. With 1 or 2 hours a day doing some course work I was able to finish this course in less than 1 month. :) I am excited to finish the rest. Also, I learned quite a lot in this one course. I feel they are setting me up for great success. I also love how I get to review and thumps up or down the process throughout the entire course to help make suggestions on how they can improve it for the next student.

The course has its uniqueness in building up of concepts in a very phased manner which was a good experience for me. Also the self paced nature of this course takes out the stress equation. I am a working professional and not able to devote much time however, the course so far benefited me in providing me the foundation concepts which are crucial for a data professional. However, A little more additional reference materials like mock case studies could be an added advantage.

This course helps me realize that there are so many interesting things to learn from data. What I'm impressed most is the data analysis process and data life cycle, which are similar but different to some extend, but still have some connections. These are just among the core principles of data that a professional data analyst should cover. Anyway, thanks Google and Coursera for offering this great course for everyone, especially for people with interest in data analytics.

very good. 1st course is very helpful for those who have no prior experience. If you already have experience and knowledge about the basics you can skip some parts of the course and take a speed track. Google and Coursera always value your appreciable and productive time. If you really love analysis of data and have some gut insights and curiosity to know more and learn more go on. Don't hesitate. I am very thankful for Coursera and google for this wonderful experience.

This is my first exposure to DA and thus far it has been eye opening. It is nothing like what I thought it would be. I thought it was just spreadsheets and visualizations with hours of nerd work. I have come to find out that it is creative, collaborative, and employs a variety of skills. It is interesting, fascinating, and a journey for sure. I am looking forward to gaining the skills I need to have a long lasting and meaningful career in this exploding industry!

Thank you so much for this course! I'm impressed with how much information and access I had during this time.
I would mention that there were a couple parts of the spreadsheets activity in which the questions asked during the assessments were not relatable to what was covered on the activities and learning modules. Perhaps, for people that aren't familiar with spreadsheets (Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel), an additional activity could be utilized to go over basics.
