Great course! I like it goes straight to implementation and is practice-oriented. What could be improved maybe is sound quality of lectures. And maybe it would be great to have some VBA notes in pdf.

Great course!! For a Part I it introduces you to useful functions and ways to approach different kind of problems. Challenging course but reasonable with low algebra. Exactly what I was looking for.

Great course; would recommend, but it could be better
-Though anyone will benefit, it's not really designed for business folks looking to automate procedures.
-Could improve the production quality: why not use a flowcharting software and then distribute the week's flowcharts in a PDF?
-The quizzes after the screencasts ARE HORRIBLY FORMATTED. Because the quiz is tied to the video, you can only see small snippets of the question. It makes reading very difficult. It would be better to (as other courses have done) put the quizzes after the screencast as a separate section.
-Times are wildly inaccurate. A week may be listed as 4-5 hours, when the end assignment alone will take you 3 hours. If you're really intent on learning well and not being in a hurry, double your time budget.
-I LOVE the difficulty and challenge of the course. However, what I don't like is how uneven it is. The week end assignments, which again I enjoy, are such a step up from the lessons that it's hard not to feel unprepared.
-1-2 page handouts for each week would be great. Sometimes you feel like there's no thread between lessons or very little tying things together. Even a simple summary of what functions / statements / object classes we use that week would be great.
-I'm currently working through the 2nd course, and I'm a little disappointed in how little "meta-learning" there was: in other words, one of the most useful things to me would have been a more thorough review of the object model, the microsoft reference guide, and how to use that resource to tackle novel problems. As it stands, I feel like I don't have a systematic understanding either of VBA itself or how to continue learning VBA. (Admittedly this is a high bar!)
-I wish he would have covered a lot more of the basics: understanding all the parts of the VB Editor window. I still have to figure out what a lot of the windows / options do. Again, it really didn't feel like a very systematic approach.
Once again, thank you Coursera / Professor N., great course!

Generally, a great course with interesting videos, good explanations and helpful assignments. Only downgrade is due to the responses in the forum: I've had a question to an assignment because I was stuck there and didn't find any solution, so I posted my question in the forum. I didn't get an answer for more than 2 months now, I even wrote a message to the coursera-support, but they didn't manage to organize me an answer either. So, great course but if you need any help, it's very likely that you must find your answers elsewhere.

Here's a key piece of information; the grader functions do not work if they and the completed starter files are not located on your computer's hard drive, and even then some folder locations return a failed message. There is no error checking in the grader function so as a student you don't know if it's your code or the grader that's returning error.

There was zero instructor involvement. I am fine with paying for a course as long as it's at least partially interactive. Assign more instructors to courses to answer questions and assist students.

Section 5 is extremely long and should require more time. the assignments were difficult and unclear at moments. Did not know how to get help from professor.

there are no material to apply with the instuctor and the course is hard, it should be simplified for the beginners

Part 5 was impossible for non-engineers. Maybe I shouldn't have tried it but I attempted to go to the honors.

Grader files don't work properly so you spend time trying to fix macros when they're already correct. (Files have to be saved to your hard drive, not to anything that OneDrive is syncing or the Grader won't work). Course is not particularly engaging, so no reason to continue forward with likelihood that I'll waste even more time trying to troubleshoot this terrible setup.

Excellent material and learning objectives. -3 stars on clear instructions and support for assignment completion. Hot Tip: Grading file and starter file must be run from your local drive not a cloud linked drive. Plus other issues.

I quit taking the course after week 2 because it had very few business applications and was far too math and engineering focused, and there was a lot of assumed knowledge.

Terrible for beginners. Stopped after completing most of Week 1.
I might've missed it, but I didn't think you needed to have a programming background to take this course (if this is true, then none of what I'm about to say applies). Although I love the teacher's passion and dedication, unfortunately he doesn't teach in a way to builds upon fundamentals. He "shows" rather than "teach." It's more like he's showing different things that it can do, rather than build fundamentals and explain the process he's showing. This isn't a value judgement about the instructor, just my experience with the way the course is taught.
The first few sections of Week 1 were fine. Introducing little bits of fundamentals. So far so good, although small moments where I felt a bit of confusion with the extremely elaborate and detailed examples he gave (for example, arguments/parameters in a sub.....how about we get used to even typing out sub a bit more, before we start feeding it parameters?). But by around the 6th video, and definitely the 8th video (Declaration/scope), it goes off the rails. I really don't see how a beginner can follow that; and he goes extremely fast, doesn't explain what he's clicking; just flies through it like he's giving a refresher.

This course was supposed to be aimed at VBA beginners, with little prior knowledge of excel functions and VBA. The course started well but by week 4 the assessments tested areas that were not covered in the course and the final assessment in week 4 used excel functions and inputs that were totally new and not even discussed or explained. This led me to spend excessive time reading literature and asking for support from colleagues purely to pass the assessment.
I had hoped that this course would be enjoyable and that i would follow up with the next courses to build my knowledge.....i wont be taking any more VBA courses and will opt to read books and get help - the timeline was to tight as I work long hours and have a young family.
if i coud have left zero stars i would have.

If you are going to do this course, you absolutely cannot use a Mac for it. This is not made clear in the beginning and wastes a lot of time. There is also no communication between the instructor and the class, and the last bit of it was from 3 years ago. If I have questions, they will never be answered.
