July 7, 2022
Great Course To Learn Excel. It has All the Topics Covered and its explained in a very simple Manner. I would absolutely recommend this if you are just starting out your Excel journey. My only Concern was the Data Analytics section which I think could be improved more.
July 7, 2022
It was a good course, it helped me to learn many concepts of MS- Excel and practice problems was really good that helped me to practice what I learned in previous sessions so that we can practice the same thing and it make our concepts more clear. Thank You

Excellent work. Keep up the good work. Not all the presentation material was available but overall, thumbs up. I'd really appreciate if a full course on data analytics is introduced.
June 18, 2022
This course about MS Excel is really beginners friendly. I learned the basic to advance usages of MS Excel thanks to the lectures.
June 14, 2022
Basic to intermediate information, but mostly useful. Background noise was often distracting however. Good course for those very new to excel.
June 14, 2022
Yes it was but I wish the instructor could spend more time on Macros but overall the course was great.
June 11, 2022
Unlike many excel courses on Udemy, this course starts from the basics and builds up to an advance level.
June 10, 2022
Very clear & explanatory sessions. Thanks for this video. Keep up good work of sharing your knowledge & expertise.
June 9, 2022
It was a great experience, though It was hard to focus because of the honking sound of the cars and when it comes to the explanation of formula and how should the output be derived and explained, the communication was not that great of experience.
June 8, 2022
This course is amazing for people who need to practice the basics of excel. Based on the name "From zero to HERO" i was expecting something more, like a deeper explanation about macros with more exercises, or maybe some exercises abour power query or power pivot
June 7, 2022
It was pretty challenging to understand what the instructor was saying at times with his thick accent. Also the audio quality changed throughout the course which made it even more challenging.
June 7, 2022
I really love the step by step instruction. It makes it so much easier to understand since the instructor breaks it down in a way that I can follow along and keep up.
June 7, 2022
Even though at times I was not able to hear because of the accent, the course was very informative and the person presenting the excel course was well versed in what they were teaching, I learned new things and the exercises that were provided were a huge help in the learning process.
