very well explained. Really very interesting and amazing test modules which make sure one doesn't proceed to next level without properly understanding the current one thoroughly.

Easy to understand and user friendly platform. Effective learning tool. The only issue is that this platform is made for PC and some of the Mac functions are not the same as PC.

Nicky has covered wonderfully every inch of the basic details right from the scratch. For beginners with no practical knowledge on Excel this is the right place to get started.
