– “This is such a great course for beginners. It taught me so many new tricks to use Excel more easily.” – Nora A.
– “I enjoyed all the lessons. I felt like each one had at least one thing that I could take away from. I really enjoyed learning how to add charts and pivot tables to my spreadsheets for an easy summary of information. The sound quality was good. The instructor was clear and precise. The information was presented in a way that was easy to understand and also covered a vast amount of information. Definitely glad that I took this course. Would take another course provided by him, hands down.” – Brittany A.
– “Sum function, formatting numbers, mean, median, mode, and count, Sumif, VLookup and HLookup were the most helpful lessons for me. They taught me new lessons that will help me in the future. The lessons were very easy to follow. I would have Excel open and ready to input the same criteria when the video started, and could pause where I needed to do the exercises on my own.” – B. Alvarez
