No Practical explanation with downloadable excel file and very poor sound quality during explanation of the topics. Thanks & Regards Subhamoy

There is no logic in this course. No refered attachments which is quite disappointed. Overall this course is quite useless.

Aruwa15 November 2019

My experience is amazing, as the course is extremely practical, I've learnt alot on Excel and power point as well

Mehriban1 October 2019

I am happy with the debth and breath of the content, really well presented, especially the practical parts on excel.

Carlton27 August 2019

Valuable information; however, there are no attachments as mentioned in the lectures. Lectures are not in order that makes sense to the viewer.

Katherine6 August 2019

The course is a good match for me as it matches my career options. The best part is that I can always go over to it again and again. Also the M&A process was well analysed and I also found it more interesting.

Thankful to the creators of the video. This is a demo video where you can understand what course is all about. Overall I will give average rating. Adding excel sheets as per the discussions in the video would have made big difference.

Kornel24 March 2019

I believe whole course is great. But this sample is just random lectures that do not stick together. No excel sheets, no materials. Just the recording wich does not explain much.

Aravind20 March 2019

Perhaps I should have been more attentive when purchasing this course and realized that this is a cluster of lectures and not the entire course. At the least, it would be beneficial to include the downloadable files for the lectures you do cover.

Lim8 March 2019

As this is a free series, it is understandable where the complete content is not shown. However, it would be better if at least one of the topic is complete. Some video have a very low audio which make it hard to be heard (But can be solve if you use a Bluetooth speaker). Nevertheless, still appreciate the instructor effort on sharing his knowledge at Udemy and the free series that enable me to gain some insight.

This course just takes bits and pieces from another course. It is rather difficult to remain engaged because the videos do not build on each other.

Emre19 January 2019

An excellent and insightful foretaste for the complete skillset course which I think is only available on Ali's professional website. I would like to register for the full course, if would get a good discount from Ali ;-) Seriously, it is worth to buy the full course, if you consider all the experience, knowledge and presentation skills the instructor is performing only in the short version, of course if you aim to have a successfull start into the M&A world.

Nathan16 October 2018

Each lesson ends with a statement about what will be next . . . but then that subject is not next. Great demos in excel, but disjointed flow in the course makes this difficult to follow.

Piyush5 April 2018

It is Nice & good for beginner. If you can include quiz after every video that will help to understand topic very well.

Great course, thank you. Do you provide coupons for your paid Excel, PowerPoint and Presentations for Investment Bankers course on Udemy?
