good course gives a basic foundation for data analytics ! Excellent for beginners who have no idea how to use excel for want to learn systematically excel files given at every lecture are very useful.
Good , but improvements can be made on alternative ways to implement the same end result. The result is your questions sometimes are one sided and there is more than 1 way to get the same end result.
This is very useful session, Hostogram is very new to me, it is clearly explained in the session. I have applied some functions in my day to day actual practice. Thanks for the wonderful session
