First, you will need to create an account to access Google Analytics with. If you already have a Google Account you do not need to create a new one. You can simply use your existing Google Analytics account to sing into and start using GA.

Once you are finished filling in the information, click the button at the bottom labeled " I accept, Create my account." Once your account has been created you can then login to your account. You are now asked to verify the account. Google will send you a verification email to ensure the email address you are using is functional. Once you have the email, click on the verification link in that email.
