Apr-May'15: Data Analysis to the MAX() (edX)

8-week class starts April 7

Enhance your data analysis skills using spreadsheets and data visualization.

Using video lectures and hands-on exercises, we will teach you techniques and best practices that will boost your data analysis skills. We will take a deep dive into data analysis with spreadsheets: PivotTables, VLOOKUPS, Named ranges, what-if analyses, making great graphs - all those will be covered in the first weeks of the course. After, we will investigate the quality of the spreadsheet model, and especially how to make sure your spreadsheet remains error-free and robust.

Finally, once we have mastered spreadsheets, we will demonstrate other ways to store and analyze data. We will also look into how Python, a programming language, can help us with analyzing and manipulating data in spreadsheets.
