Khushboo30 September 2020

I loved this course. thankyou so much. I always wanted to learn excel and always searched on you tube but somehow I never find them interesting or I didn't knew the sequence (coz I already have knowledge about the basics and i wanted to learn the rest) and if I understood the YouTube video but then I don't have anything to practice. amazing course. thankyou so much. highly recommend to other who want to learn excel.

Adarsh28 September 2020

thank you for making this course, it is something i was looking for. the speaker has very good communication skills which are beneficial for students like us who are not very good at english.

ShreeJeeth23 September 2020

This course is very good for beginners in excel. However if u know the basics of excel it might be kinda boring at the start where u can skip the most..but the second half is very useful for anyone. Do give a try if u are a beginner. The trainer teaches slow and steady, easy to understand

Michael21 September 2020

The course is really educating and engaging. However, The instructor’s accent is a little difficult to grasp and needs some getting used to.

Ajmal14 September 2020

this excel tutorial helped me a lot to learn many things, content and lectures are very understandable

aditya12 September 2020

Full marks to the trainer for his knowledge and teaching skills and the training material that was used and provided, it indeed saved a lot of time during practice as I didn't have to prepare test data for hands-on. The good thing is, this course is really made for someone who's is zero in Excel as the name says. What I found missing was, you can include more functions, if not all, in the course. Functions are the most important features of Excel, I came here just for that to quickly learn all the available functions in Excel.

Abideen17 November 2019

It is awesome!! It serves as a refresher course for me. Great job so far. I can't wait to get more. Having completed the course, it has challenged me to go more for Excel Data Analysis. The data analysis in excel is awesome and highly rewarding if one can acquire the require skill. Well done.

Raffaele14 November 2019

It is a good mind refresher course before doing a more advanced one. Adding the option of downloading the work sheets at the beginning so that the student can follow the instructor and apply the same simultaneously was an excellent thing. Keep the good work.
