What students have already said about this course

  1. ShelleB This course is hands-down the best on Excel conditional formatting and it's only half an hour long! I took it to prep for an upcoming college statistical analysis course with heavy Excel usage and got so much more out of it than I thought. He uses simple language, short bursts of lecture and provides a simple download for your own practice.
  2. Fauziya Shariff The course is simple and easy to understand. The instructor is simply superb.
  3. Hermant Namdeo I never knew about conditional formatting in excel and after seeing the advantages of it, I regret how I missed it so long. A great course.
  4. Anupam Prasad Absolutely to the point. I saved a lot of time learning a new way of handling my data. The short clip approach binds to the content. Absolute must for busy souls.
  5. Jerry The training is so easy to follow and clearly understood. I'm looking forward to more of Jed's material's.
