Buen curso, efectivamente pude repasar de manera rápida algunos puntos básicos del manejo del Excel. Si usas Excel en tu dia a dia podría ser bastante básico y recomiendo realizar un nivel más avanzado.

The course was definitely more than I expected. It not only strengthened what I did know about Excel but it showed me several options that I was not using or haven't found. I would highly recommend it.

Very insightful and I enjoyed the teachers who made it very practical and little theory. I was self taught over a few years and this helped me to fill in a lot of gaps in my foundational knowledge.
