    Nan Halberg completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    Best course out of the specialization in terms of clear presentation, hands-on learning (in Excel), and exposure to some basic concepts. Very professional preparation and delivery of course content - I wish all MOOCs were done this well.
  • Benny Alamsyah completed this course, spending 12 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    I just want to improve my knowledge and do not stop people to learning. In this Coursera I can study even only just as a reviewer.
    I can learn with a good lecturer. Thank You Coursera for this review lesson.

    Great course, I picked up some new skills in Excel. Examples used were relevant to the world. Quizzes were a bit too easy considering the content of the lectures.
