How is this course different from other resources available online?
Most courses cover only teach how to draw different types of charts in Excel. The main point is missed. The main point of creating a chart is that you want to convey a message or tell a story using the chart. In this course, once you have learnt all the charting tools, you will also learn how you should create a chart. How you can highlight your message and avoid clutter in the chart, so that when your audience looks at the chart, the message is clearly conveyed to them.

The course was good. Though I read that other people that took the course that the accent was hard to understand, it was not much of a problem for me. The only feedback that I have was that the background music was a little bit distracting but not too bad. Also, I noticed that the entire course had no notes from other users that would write notes at certain parts of the section. And lastly, very few of the sections had the wrong file. Other that that, It was a good course.
Agora me adaptei ao inglês e estou adorando o curso. O professor é super didático e o conteúdo muito rico. Parabéns professor!
The trainer was very patient in explaining, few places slides are running differently and topics is about general.

I just feel that these type of courses are somewhat of difficult. But, it's not correct. These lectures made it easy to me
course content is not up to the mark. it seems like that course content is made in hurry. Except Few lecture most of the lecture's content is not covered in detail. Very poor explanation about topic and it seems like that Tutor is not in mood to share more knowledge regarding topic. Very disappointing.
Even though I know Excel charts, I learned about Waterfall and Sunburst charts which is a good thing. Learning is always good.
Nice explanations. Exercises are the best part where we can learn practically. Thank you for providing an opportunity to improve my skill.
