What Our Students Say
Most frustrating about this course: *) Several 20 second videos. Very annoying to have to constantly click next and lose focus when you could just merge videos to be not that ridiculously short. *) The presenter speaks very slowly and sometimes with annoying too long pauses. Makes me feel like I'm losing time. Also, he speaks as if educating people in elementary school or a retirement home. I don't think that's your primary audience. *) Seems unprofessional that you use 12 year old software (Excel 2007) for demonstration in this course. And even spend half the time talking about Excel 2003 (at least in the introduction section). If I'm not wrong at least Excel 2013 is used in most of your other courses. That's just form spending 15 minutes on the VBA course. Also, I think it would benefit you if you included text field questions asking to comment the course in the surveys that have to be completed at the end of each course. I'm pretty sure most people has at least something to add about how to improve the courses, but not everyone wants to write these formal reviews, with no anonymity that you personally answer to afterwards.
This is my first time programming in VBA. I found the introductions and course material very good and learned a lot from the hands-on examples.
I have not seen any other courses on VBA with financial modeling before - super interesting to understand how you use VBA in your Excel model.
