Comments on the course

Easy course if you follow his videos and allow yourself about an hour for each assignment if you’re not familiar with Microsoft Office. Some assignments are tedious and are hard to follow, but there are office hours practically all day, every day which makes the course that much easier. Highly recommend to anyone. I learned a lot about Microsoft Office, especially in Excel.

Comments on the course

The class itself is easy enough, and it communicates necessary skills in Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. However, the instructions and lectures were hard to understand at times, and it took the professor a while to get to the point frequently. Also, one lecture had horrible background echo, and the lectures appear to be recycled from multiple years ago.

Comments on the course

This class was really easy. For the first half of the semester, Professor Mendoza-Garcia will walk you through all the steps of the assignments through video so you know exactly what to do. There are some assignments later on that he does not walk you through entirely, but he still gives a lot of instruction, and going to office hours can help get you extra credit, so if you're struggling, there is really no excuse for failing an assignment. I still use a lot of the stuff I learned in this course, and I knew nothing about excel beforehand.

Course Content

The hardest week's assignment took probably a couple of hours and the easiest took a few minutes. There is a lot of extra credit that is easy to do.

Comments on the professor

The professor is really nice and thorough. I liked him a lot.

Advice

The assignments usually don't take long, but that doesn't always mean they're easy. I recommend not leaving them for last, because you never know how confusing or difficult an assignment might be.

Comments on the course

The only "difficult" thing about this class was the poorly-written instructions on some of the assignments. His videos give you all the information you need to complete the assignments.
