The course is arranged extremely well and the Instructor has made sure that every point gets through through several examples.

Would definitely recommend the course if you're looking to get a basic/fundamental understanding of making your way around excel.

One issue I faced throughout the course was the worksheets to be downloaded, especially for graded assignments, often had errors in the data types. The 'date' field seemed to be messed up almost always, making it difficult to follow what was being taught. Now, this might be due to differences in the versions of Excel being used, but it is an important point nonetheless.

Wonderful course!
