A great primer for using Google Analytics. Even as a more experienced user, I have a long list of things I will make adjustments to to improve my website tracking.

I don't know if there was anything that I would improve. It was one of the best online courses I have ever taken. I have dealt with SQL Server and T-SQL for 10 years, as well as dealing with Enterprise Applications, but I learned more than I imagined when I first started.
