This Excel class is comprehensive guide during which you will learn a whole host of topics. It represents the most common Excel "stuff" used in modern business and understanding the content within will arguably catapult you into the upper echelon of Excel users.
During the class you will learn by watching the instructor actually demonstrate the topics on screen using annotations to make sure you don't get lost, along with providing full, detailed explanation of the subjects. This class starts at absolute square one, and then gradually walks through the remaining topics explaining the most relevant aspects of Excel in a simple, east, yet light-hearted, fun approach.
The "secret" to Excel is this-- realize there are NO such categories like Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Excel. They simply do not exist. With Excel you learn the basics, from there it's nothing but another layer of fundamentals. Phrased differently, the Excel curriculum is topical, not progressive. Meaning the order in which you learn things does not matter since all the topics are not interrelated. Therefore, knowing this fact, when you look at the class as nothing more than a bunch of individual topics that have been strung together, Excel becomes a breeze!
Last, no matter what version of Excel you are using there has always been some core topics that represent the "need to know". Phrased differently, all the material in this class contains the essentials and is transferable to all versions of Excel- 2010, 2013 and 2016. Sure there are some differences between the versions, but they are not so drastic as to really mess you up. :)
Note: even though this class was created using Excel 2010 the concepts shown apply for all versions for the most part. :)
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who is looking to become fully competent in Excel
- This class is applicable for any version of Excel 2010, 2013 (Excel 2010 was used to create the class)
Dave has been engaged in computer training over the past 20+ years. During this time he has been fortunate to work with many great people, and been able to impact them through his unique, laid-back, fun, yet quirky, learning style. He has trained extensively domestically and internationally, along with personally training over 100,00 people.
He does not believe in overly polished, eloquent presentations. Rather he focuses on a more conversational approach to learning. Subsequently, he does NOT consider himself an expert by any stretch. Why? Simply because that term reeks of arrogance and is not his modus operendi. Instead, he views himself as a perpetual apprentice in the computer field and believes there is always something new to be learned, no matter how long you've been doing "it".
True to form, he would like to thank the people that have mentored him throughout the years.
