TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO SPREADSHEETS AND MODELS
Good course with the essentials in data mindset and skill for basic data analytics tools. But sometime the teacher describles unclearly so It is hard to complete the quiz.
Course is great with showing much interesting fuctions in excel. Only 4 out of 5 stars because it is not clear how to submit formula input in quizes - whether start with = or not etc.
So many tools that I knew existed and have tried to use the How-To's to learn how they work and until the Prof takes you through them one-at-a-time, they never make sense. Great Stuff!
This is a very good introduction to building deterministic models. Be sure to utilize the additional reading suggestions and tutorials at the end of this lesson.
