This course was very challenging, the instructor was very encouraging and I feel I learned quite a bit. I am very happy that I enrolled in this Excel course. It will help me in the future when I start my own business.
Loved this course! It is indeed challenging and it takes practicing in Excel. Mr. Wambolt goes that extra mile, or should I say miles, to cover everything possible in his notes. His notes and quizzes are brilliant.
I enjoyed the class and being able to refer back to the course materials whenever I need to. I do learn better in a class environment, but my work schedule does not allow for it. Thanks, Chad! Well laid out and well written.
This course is organized very well and was easy to follow. Great job to the instructor. I did not need to interact with the instructor at any time.
Intermediate Microsoft Excel 2016 helped me to improve my existing Excel skills, as well as to develop new ones. I appreciated the pace of the class, as well as the assignments and quizzes which helped me gauge my compression of the subject matter. The instructor, Chad Wambolt, explained concepts in a clear and concise manner. I look forward to taking additional classes with this online instructor.
