TOP REVIEWS FROM EXCEL FUNDAMENTALS FOR DATA ANALYSIS
Thank you for this course! It was a lot of fun and easy to follow. I loved the assignements when not only that weeks knowledge was tested but also something randomly from previous weeks.
Name of the course is Excel Fundamentals for Data Analysis but I don't think it's fundamental. I learn a lot and very satisfied with the pace, the quiz, the 'reading' material. Thank you!
