final assessment

After completing the course final assessment, I threw up my hands when I passed.

Would be nice to have answers to final assessment after passing.

Some of the final assessments need work (as seen in the discussion forums.

It is a pity that Week 5 Challenge was very difficult, but there wasn't enough explanation.Except for this, I am really satisfied with this course.The final assessment was really tough and it took me hours to solve it, but now I am really confident.

previous courses

This course deepens the concepts taught during the previous courses in the specialization explaining concepts like data validation, conditional logic, lookup functions and the foundation of Excel macros.

Very Very excelllent Course as its previous courses.

I attended all previous courses and so far this one was the most challenging!

It is surely quite tricky as compared to the previous courses, but it has more important aspects covered to enhance our skills.
