The course was defiantly 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.

Incredibly Helpful. I have been using Microsoft Excel since I was 8 (I'm 27 now) and I learned a lot. The course familiarized me with the formal names and function of excel operations.

The course was nicely structured and all the material was well-explained. All the assignments were clear and I think it is an extremely good idea to have a small quiz after each video.
