Syllabus

1   Excel Charts and Graphs

In your first lesson, you will discover why Excel 2016 is such a powerful charting tool. To you, a workbook's numbers might tell an interesting story; to others, that story may not be obvious. You will learn how to choose the right chart for your story and then how to create, format, and edit your chart.

2   More Excel Charts

This lesson continues exploring Excel's charting options—this time looking at the lesser-known options that are available to you. Even though they may not be well-known, these options can add tremendous value to your worksheets in the right situations.

3   AutoFilter and Sorting

Working with data in Excel can be quite easy when you know about the tools that are available in a table format. One of these great tools is the Auto Filter command. This lesson will teach you how to use Auto Filter to limit your table information to just the records you want.

4   Goal Seeking

If you know what formulas you want but don't know how to get there, Excel's Goal Seek is exactly what you need. In this lesson, you will learn how to utilize this tool to avoid the trial-and-error approach that most Excel users go through to get to the right answer.

5   PivotTables

This lesson will teach you how to use one of the best features of Excel: the PivotTable. There's no greater “what-if” analysis tool to summarize, reorganize, and report data.

6   Advanced PivotTables

Just like charting, Excel's PivotTables are too big a topic to fit into one lesson. This lesson takes a tour through some of Excel's more advanced techniques, like the PivotTable filtering tool Slicer. You will also learn how a PivotTable can serve as your source for the PivotChart.

7   Solver

Have you ever worked with a financial model in Excel and wondered how you could speculate different outcomes by changing different input amounts? The Excel Solver can do just that. In this lesson, you will learn how to use Solver to solve a complex problem based on criteria and constraints.        

8   Sparklines

There's nothing more exciting than learning how to master a new feature in Excel. This lesson focuses on creating three types of Sparklines, as well as formatting options for each. By the end of the lesson, you will have the skills to create dashboard-style mini charts. 

9   Macros

In this lesson, you will find out how to use macros to turn repetitive and often time-consuming tasks into automated Excel functions. You will also learn how to record a macro that performs time-consuming task in seconds with the click of a button.           

10   Introduction to Functions

If you have used Excel for a while, you know there are hundreds of functions at your disposal. The last three lessons of this course will cover how and why you would use these functions. This lesson introduces creating various functions with the Text category.

11   Math/Trig Functions

Next to learning how to create macros, most students want to learn as much as they can about Excel functions. This lesson covers on more complex functions of the “Math & Trig” category, focusing on the SUMIF and COUNTIF functions in particular.

12   VLOOKUP, INDEX, and MATCH Functions

Since functions are such an integral part of using Excel, your final lesson will cover advanced features. In this lesson, you will learn how to use the VLOOKUP, INDEX, and MATCH functions.
