Good even for Excel users

I have been using Excel for many years, and still picked up a lot of things from this beginners course. The material was presented in a well organized manner. Clear and straight forward. Microsoft manuals/help is a nightmare. This was fantastic. If there was anything to knock, it would be the speed of the lectures (but that’s my fault for not using the pause button more), and some things being repeated more than I considered necessary. But again, it is a beginner course.

Great option for home study for adult learners or anyone

At first I had read many of the problems that users were having and initially had some technical difficulty. But it seems all the problems were resolved and I only had one incidence where the website was not available. It is so convenient to study as you can, to have a ready reference for revisiting. The content is extensive and instructor is very easy to follow.

Best Excel Training for the Basics

This course is perfect for teaching the basics and some quick short cuts, I am very much looking forward to the advanced course.

A very comprehensive review of features

I think Udemy did a great job comprehensively covering all the basic and intermediate features of MS Excel 2010 very well. The main reason I will not give them higher than 3.5 – 4 stars is because the video/screen images are blurry. Sometimes it is very hard to see what values, etc are.

Inaccessible to visual learners

I am deaf and there is no captions or visual descriptions of whatever the explanations were regarding how things work. I learned nothing…

I learned a great deal from this. The sections progress in an easy-to-learn order, and I was surprised how much I picked up in a “beginner” course considering I use excel everyday. Look forward to the Advanced version!

Long, but Useful

A very extensive course that has been broken down to some very basics to some relatively decent intermediary steps. I’d recommend it to someone who needs to get at the basics of Excel but isn’t looking for very advanced manipulation.

Easy listening

The teacher has everything nicely paced. Then, any online course is best taken in short doses, which works well.

Even some of the Basics escaped me

Although I’ve been using Excel for years, some of the short cuts that I should have known were revealed to me in this course. One problem that I had was the inconsistent volume of the instructors speech.

Solid intro, take notes

I enjoyed this course and as an ‘intermediate’ excel user I learned new tricks in even the most basic modules. It’s really helpful to see someone using Excel before your eyes and hear them explain why something might be useful. Just remember to take notes on formulas and workflows you like!

Good Course

I found this course to be well explained. Some problems with technical, such as after listening to course it does not show up as completed. Had to enlarge to get a clear picture. But other than that it was very educational.

Thorough content, great teacher!

I found these lessons to be clear and Guy an effective and humorous teacher. I especially love that I will be able to come back to reference relevant modules forever, since some things I won’t use often. Thanks!

This is a wonderful course. Even though I thought I was good at using Excel, I can see that there was still a lot I didn’t know or at least shorter ways of doing things.

Thanks. I look forward to the Advance course.

Excellent course. Online the way to go!

Excellent coverage of Excel 2010. I have taken classroom Excel courses before but taking the course online and the ability to go at my own pace and to review lectures was a valuable advantage. The lectures were excellent and thorough with the instructor covering a lot of material. I wish I would continue to have access to this series for future. I took a lot of notes and that should help. I’m ready for the Advanced course!

Learns Little Tricks

Even if you know Excel and think you know it well, there are still little tricks to learn that this course will teach you. Plus, this course information (mostly) works for 2007. It’s great because it helps you figure out where everything moved to on the ribbon in 2010. And when i move to 2013 I can come back here and take the course. I can’t wait. I’ve been having a blast!

I have just started and the instructor is very easy to understand, he speaks slowly and clearly, and repeats so comprehension is easy.

All the elements that make instruction good: good material, good instructor, and well-constructed lessons. I hesitated taking a “beginners” course in Excel. REALLY glad I did take it!

Outstanding series!

Even though I have been using Excel for as long as it has been out, and I was considered by many to be very good at it. I learned many many very important uses and features.

Very highly recommended.
