Explica de una muy buena manera todos los conceptos básicos y avanzados para poder analizar datos y llevar a cabo tareas de oficina. Sus ejercicios vienen con respuesta para checarlos nosotros sin ser obligatorio y comparte todos los archivos con los que explica la clase para que podamos revisarlos por nuestra cuenta. Me gusto mucho

Chirag17 September 2020

I am a beginner to excel data analysis & never thought excel would be able to do things i was doing in year 11 maths

Saikat13 September 2020

Delivery content is not matching with practise either this is older version of excel being taught or too complicated practise comparing to simple training. Lesson 3 had proved during practise during concat function to combine address and substitute function.

Prerna12 September 2020

Could have more in-depth use of much difficult and nested formulas and much in-depth analysis techniques also

Abhinav5 September 2020

The course is good and covers the major tools that a business professional would require. However, while showing the application of various excel formulas and tools, it would be great if the explanation behind them is also given. For instance, what exactly does the "$" symbol do when applied in a formula.

Sabiha12 November 2019

Good review for intermediate users to refresh their excel knowledge. Good to have shortcuts for Macs as well.

Ari1 October 2019

Yes, so far this has been a good match. I am the ordering manager at my company and we use spreadsheets to place most of our ordering. The formulas, though basic, go a long way in reminding me there are more efficient methods in working with large data.

William29 September 2019

If you can access this course for free or cheaply, it is worth reviewing. There are lots of useful tips and tricks for using Excel which will make you more productive if you use Excel regularly. If you are someone like me who has been using Excel for many years but never had any training, you should get a fair amount out of this course. The bonus lectures and section 12 can be skipped though.

Meik20 August 2019

Standard Kurs mit einigen Interessanten Ansätzen. Der Dialekt ist auf Dauer etwas anstrengend. Fortgeschrittene User werden 95% des Kurses überspringen können, ohne etwas neues zu verpassen!

Gaurav13 August 2019

It is a good course. Only required little more explanation at few places like what is the use of "& or $" in formulas. Anyway thanks for making this course.

Tracey11 August 2019

having a lot of problems getting the videos to play and couldn't check where I had made a mistake in the practice session

Yannick7 August 2019

Well although not perfect because excel has infinite possibility great basic and semi-advanced excel course.

Na6 August 2019

Very clear exactly what everything does and does not do Great use of short cut keys and displaying it on the screen for easy follow on Using tools previously learnt earlier on in the course further down in later sections Great use of practical real life uses of each funciton

Krissi19 July 2019

If this is a course meant for English speaking learners, then it should be required for instructors to have clear and understandable English. I hate that I can barely understand him. In addition, this course should disclose this is for intermediate excel users and not "all levels". There are some steps he doesn't say what he is doing and just does it and it is hard to figure out because I am a beginner. I am going to work through a couple more lessons and decide if I want to get my money back and find a different course.

Carmen25 June 2019

Muy bien explicado, aunque la información de esta primera lección es un poco más básica de lo que esperaba
