  1. Enjoyed!


    I have been hoping to improve my understanding of Microsoft Excel for some time, but couldn’t find the right course for me that combined a beginner’s overview with more advanced learning. After discovering this course, I believe it was worth the wait. I really enjoyed how there was no time limit or deadlines, as this meant I could fit my studies around my work.

  2. Excellent!


    Thanks to this course, I now have a good understanding of the popular tips and tricks of Excel, as well as some of the complicated concepts and formulas. I was able to complete this course on my tablet wherever I could pick up a WiFi signal. And with lifetime access, I can always top up my knowledge if I need to.
