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.

The format of this course is presented to empower the student, and that learning Excel is not only rewarding, but also entertaining with a serious undertone.

Excellent course, even having worked with Excel for quite some time, I found some new tip in every video. But as the name implies, it covers only essentials.
