About the Course

By the end of this project, you will learn how to create an Excel Spreadsheet by using a free version of Microsoft Office Excel. Excel is a spreadsheet that works like a database. It consists of individual cells that can be used to build functions, formulas, tables, and graphs that easily organize and analyze large amounts of information and data. Excel is organized into rows (represented by numbers) and columns (represented by letters) that contain your information. This format allows you to present large amounts of information and data in a concise and easy to follow format. Microsoft Excel is the most widely used software within the business community. Whether it is bankers or accountants or business analysts or marketing professionals or scientists or entrepreneurs, almost all professionals use Excel on a consistent basis. You will learn what an Excel Spreadsheet is, why we use it and the most important keyboard shortcuts, functions, and basic formulas....

A little less content than expected but the title does say it's just an intro plus it's free. The explanations are clear and the course is quite engaging. The Coursera platform is very user-friendly.

I was so pleased with this course I am excited to continue adding to my skills and start the next one. It was easy to follow along and keep up. The instructor gave clear instructions showing step by step how to do the tasks and I loved that it was all self paced so I could stop and come back a couple times. I actually feel like I understand at least the basics of Excel and am ready to build on the skills I learned here. Thanks Coursera!

I really enjoyed this short course! I needed the basics of Excel to be taught to me like i am 5 years old, and she did! From teaching us how to simply open and save an Excel sheet to actually putting in a simple equation. The instructor was very informative and went slowly enough that you can follow her cursor and match your work with hers.

Im actually very impressed. It is actually a Beginner course for beginners :) thank you!

Thank you for sharing the basic knowledge of Microsoft Excel, since I wanted to refresh my memory in working with it. I haven't continued learning this to the next level, so I thought of going back to the start line. Nevertheless, this is my first time accessing free lessons in Coursera and it was quite satisfying for this mind.

This course is very informative, especially for those people who have totally clueless about how ms excel works. The context of the course is rather basic but still informative primarily that the instructor uses examples for you to fully understand the context f the course. All in all, I love my experience.

Me ha encantado la ayuda brindada hacia a un latinoamericano que no había tocado siquiera el Excel, ha sido una introducción lo bastante completa para liberarme del miedo de dar el primer paso. Muchísimas gracias.
