    The lessons and knowledge you gain from each day you study are invaluable. I have taken many courses in programming, but I must admit that nano degrees in Business Analytics - which is my next career goal - are without a doubt the best I have taken. I look forward to more nano degrees at Udacity.

    I was thinking about which course to choose to gain new skills and start a career in the data world and as I had no experience, I decided to start with the basics. The Business Analytics course is great, from the beginning I felt like I was learning, they share real cases, experiences and clearly define the context in which the subject is focused. The concepts are learned progressively, and with exercises to practice. One of my favourite parts of the course is the summaries and reviews of the theory given in the videos. I'm already saving up to buy the next Nanodegree, because education is always a good investment. :)

    "It's been amazing and at the same time, very challenging. I have had to stretch my mental capacity a lot for the projects, and I totally love it! The organization is top-notch too, and the efforts put in by the instructors to deliver the lessons are totally appreciated. And yes, another shade of Udacity I have witnessed in recent times is the promptness in responding to the projects and questions in the Mentor's section. It's very commendable! Well done, Udacity!"

    "Hello! I am a doctor and I am trying to change my profession in IT. It is a little difficult for me to take this course because my English is in the process and I have to review each lecture several times, but this does not interfere with understanding and solving the assigned tasks, since the lectures are structured correctly and everything is clear for a novice specialist. Hope to complete this course successfully with your help!"

    I would first like to thank Udacity as a whole. I did my first report project and it was successful. The review was done within two hours. From the recommendations, it was very clear that our tutors check the project keenly. This is because the recommendations and corrections are very relevant to the project I had done. Can't wait to submit my second Project for review. This is wonderful!!

    Great! I'm impressed with the set-up and process. Although, I come with some existing skills related to the courses, I'm learning many new things. Absorbing the concepts are a big plus. The method of breaking down item by item only to build up to the final result is working well with me and my learning style.
