Very good course. Breaks down complicated ideas in a way that is easy to understand. Would recommend to anyone who wants to refresh their skills or learn how to use Excel for the first time.

My main issue is not being able to read and see the content. In the instructional video, when a formula is being demonstrated it is at times out of frame and all you hear is the explanation, making it difficult to follow along. I couldn't increase the size of the sample document or the window itself, I really tried to stick with it but it left me struggling to see and then frustrated. Please fix this or do a new one.

The cloud Excel program was awful. Lagging and glitched. It took so long for the program to catch up with my cursor movement I ended up just finishing the project on my own Excel computer program.

Well explained and easy to follow! The instructor goes in logical order: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Logically, we then proceed to =SUM and =SUMIF functions and drag a completed formula down for expedient answers!
