How is it structured?

Together we concentrate on building a single complete project from beginning to end, using all the basic functions and give you a thorough understanding. I know your time is valuable, so most lectures are between 3-5 minutes, allowing you to dip in and out when it's convenient for you. This also maximizes your learning, and makes it easy if you ever need to go back to refresh your memory...no need to click through a 40 minute lecture to find the part you're looking for! There are screencasts, lots of quizzes, presentations, pdfs, downloadable files...all designed to optimize your learning.

What do I get with this course? 

  • Lifetime access to over 4 hours of HD content.

  • Over 50 bite-size lectures, each covering a specific topic in detail. Some of which I have never seen taught before!

  • Multiple quizzes or tests to ensure you cement your learning!

  • Downloadable source file, practice file, and pdf cheat sheets that you can take with you and quickly refer back to if you are away from home.

  • Access to the Q&A forum, so if you have any questions, you can ask me!

 

What other students are saying:

So, Why take THIS course?

I have been using Excel for over 20 years, but there is a difference between being good at something and being able to teach it. In that time I have taught thousands of people how to master its power. Because I have taught so many people, I know not to assume you already understand something, and I have probably already heard every question you are likely to have.

This course took over 4 months to produce, and has been tested extensively with hundreds of people. If something didn't work, or wasn't clear, it was revised until it did, to make this the best possible course on Excel.

Of course, we never stop learning, and I will continue to develop this course, and your skills, with your feedback. And remember, if you have a question, post it in the Q&A and I will answer it for you personally.

Get this course now, and...enjoy!
