How are charts useful in Excel?

A chart is a tool you can use in Excel to communicate data graphically. Charts allow your audience to see the meaning behind the numbers, and they make showing comparisons and trends much easier.

What are the benefits of using charts in Excel?

Excel charts allow spreadsheet administrators to create visualizations of data sets. By highlighting a set of data within an Excel spreadsheet and feeding it into the charting tool, users can easily create various types of charts in which the data is displayed in a graphical way.

This course will answer all the questions that would pop up while you set to visualize your data using Excel charts such as:

How do you make Excel charts look better?

How do you format a chart in Excel?

What are the different elements of charts?

How do I make those awesome infographics that I see in fancy magazines and TV reports?

How do I create a comparison chart in Excel?

What is the best chart to use for comparison?

And many more...

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.

Aashu3 June 2020

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.
