The course was amazing! It just keeps getting better and better to a point that this is all I think about the whole day. SQL was a bit tough to grasp for me but they made it so easy and simple to understand in this course. The best part is that they don't just teach you data analytics, they also prepare you for your professional journey. The week they dedicate to the part about growing yourself as a professional just makes this course so meaningful and unlike any other course that you would take. Can't wait to get done with the whole thing.

A very good course on how to prepare your data for the analysis. The instructor gave the basic understanding of SQL. I am a beginner in data analysis and this course had helped me to get more enthusiasm for data analysis. Before this course I though SQL can be learned only who knows programming, but the way things were explained about SQL I think anyone can learn SQL who have have basic logical thinking and basic math skills. Thank you Hallie, Coursera and Google for the wonderful and easy understood able lectures, interactive lectures...

Excellent course with great information on how to organize/protect data and write basic queries. I particularly enjoyed the BigQuery exercises.
The section on metadata was very useful, and “Data structuring with Quick, Draw!” was also fun! Also introduction to Kaggle at the end of Week 1 was great – this site has a lot of materials and free courses.
Also if you are new to workforce and/or LinkedIn, the “Online Presence” section is for you! Very good tips on how to establish and grow your online presence and where to find connections!

I thoroughly enjoyed this course and enjoyed following a great presenter who seemed to grow in confidence. I really appreciate the guidance on Kaggle. I would love to get involved in the various stock market challenges. This course also gave me the push to finally set up my own Google Cloud Platform account. I've used QwikLabs before, but never taken the plunge to develop my own projects.
In terms of content, the mix between technical and soft skills is about right. There are plenty of modules to go in the program.

Great course to prepare your data. Only one thing might disturb you, which is in third week, it tries to teach you a lot in one video, which can be overwhelming when you watch it for the first time. But they repeat the process in that video afterwards to make sure you learn it, so at the end there remains no problem :) Btw, the quizzes and weekly challenges were great but the overall course challenge could be better by kind of forcing us use the Google Cloud Platform(BigQuery) :D

Great course! The course definitely gave me some understanding of concepts and skills in databases, understanding data types, SQL, Kaggle, and general understanding of data analytics from the prepare stage of the data life cycle. It even goes into how to get your career started with practical and useful information about using social media for networking, finding a mentor, and creating an online presence, which I would have never thought of to be honest.

Was great working through and learning the processes. What made it better was being introduced to the different tools and communities that you could interact with to get a real sense of what you can expect when you formally enter the field of data analytics.
I have also been applying many of the things I've been learning to my current projects and the structures that have been introduced are going a long way in improving how I solve problems.

The course has provided the basic grasp of preparing data for exploration by introducing Spreadsheet, SQl and Kaggle which are all commonly used in Data Analytics. I was expecting the exercise to be more advanced. However, with new learner, this is a great start to build up your knowledge. Google also suggested several credible sites for further reference and social connectivity for your career developmnent which I found most interesting.

The course was very insightful as I learnt how prepare data for exploration. learnt what type of data that answers a particular business question; determine what type of data to collect. I learnt a lot about data sources, structure, database, Big Query, Kaggle community, datasets, metadata, SQL and a host of other insights. It is worth every penny spent. Bravo to Coursera and Google. It was great for a beginner like me!

This a beginner-friendly introduction to Kaggler and BigQuery - which I really enjoyed. Because of the gradual introduction of the interface and features, I did not get overwhelmed with these platforms and I found myself practicing whenever I could. I also appreciated the inclusion of career tips and advice towards the end of the course - the advice given are helpful and something I would do right away.

This course covered SQL queries more in-depth and had some very good exercises with Big Query and Kaggle platforms. The video instructors covered SQL in a way that was not as intimidating to a beginner. So far, this course has also provided some good pointers for Excel and Google Sheets. This course also used less discussion board prompts and focused in more on programming, which seemed very productive.

I gave this module 5 stars because it provided the foundation for information and techniques in preparing data for exploration. It was segemented into easily understood components that were timed appropriately combined with knowledge and practical examples. Another portion of the content had to do with professional interaction and facilitating a professional image to progress towards goals.

Excellent in-depth course on sourcing datasets for projects, how to determine whether they contain 'good' or 'bad' data, how to ensure data privacy measures are taken and best practices for naming files and folders for use in collaborative efforts. The instructor is personable and easy to follow. Her commitment to the field of data analysis and enthusiasm is contagious. Well done Google!

I learnt a lot about database, data security, and SQL queries in this course, especially I had the chance to practice my SQL skills with Google BigQuery. The learning and practicing materials are straight to the point, concise and relevent enough to help me understand the core ideas and apply my skills. Google and Coursera did a great job, so thank you and please keep up your good work!

I thouroughly enjoyed this course. I am 100% an amatuer, and each of these courses have taught me so much. They're well put together. The strategy of a watching short video, a short read, followed by a quiz seems to be just what I needed to make the information stick!! interactive and never boring. I really appreciate all of the Goggle analyst who "hosted" courses. <3

The most challenging part of this certificate so far, I learned a lot. I build skills that I previously did not have in an easy to learn structure. I loved every minute of it, including the syntax errors that nearly had me pulling my hair out. GREAT course, I would definately recommend for the SQL, BigQUERY and Spreedsheet data cleaning practice and experience.

Throughly enjoyed this portion of the course because of the introduction to SQL. Prior to starting the course I fully thought the introduction to SQL would be very basic with very limiting knowlwdge. That was not the case. The cousre around SQL was very engaging and provided the right tools I needed to be engaged and enthusiatics about learning more. Thank you.

The course was really interesting and gave the right information I was hoping for. Maybe the last section was a bit out of topic, nevertheless, it was good to have some information and suggestions on how to enter in this field professionally. I would also like to congratulate Hallie and the way she presented the topic. She made it very easy to follow along.

I am from Vietnam and I appreciate that Google and everybody working at Google had helped me on my way to become a data analyst in the future. Thanks to you that I more believe in myself everyday. It is not easy to have a center in Vietnam to teach me about data because it is still a new major in our country. Google has help me so much. Thank you.

It was a great learning experience. This module opened my mind to BigQuery (SQL) and Kaggle.
These were the biggest new knowledge I learnt in this course. I also appreciated the sections that talked about building your network and using social media to do that. I really appreciated that section as well.
All in all it was an amazing module.

I felt this course did a good job of giving an overview of the tools and language needed to prepare data. I felt the spreadsheet content was a little light, but that may be because I have had experience with them. Likely someone with SQL experience (not me) would think the same about the database content. Overall, I enjoyed the course.

I learned how to indentify good data sources that arev unbiased and credible and the importance of open data from this course. The course also includes the credible public open data websites we can visit and use the datasets to practice data analytics. I really recommend this course and it will help you prepare to be a data analytics.
