I have already recommended this course to several of my coworkers. The material presented will be useful and touches on many capabilities of Excel, but presented it in a way that was not overwhelming."
This class was great! Not only did I learn so much about Excel that I didn't know, the scenarios used in the curriculum were so pertinent to every day life at the office and at home. I send reports on a daily basis using Excel, and as I learned how to create more professional spreadsheets, I changed what I was doing. I've also began to use what I've learned at home! Thanks Chad; this was awesome!!"
