In this course you will learn the fundamentals of Google Sheets (much of which translates to MS Excel!). You will not only learn the basics, like adding and subtracting. But you will also learn valuable advanced formulas like VLOOKUP, INDEX(MATCH()MATCH()), and IMPORTRANGE.

Never heard of those before? Don't worry! I start from the beginning - so those terms will become clear when the time is right.

Along the way, you will develop an amazing spreadsheet toolkit. Wondering what tools will be in that toolkit? Check out the list below for some highlights of the course:

  1. Learn the basics like how to create a Google Account and a Google Spreadsheet

  2. Arithmetic Functions like SUM, COUNT, and AVERAGE

  3. Shortcuts like filling formulas across THOUSANDS of cells

  4. Advanced charts & Beautiful Visualizations

  5. PIVOT TABLES - though I don't particularly like them...

  6. Advanced functions like INDEX MATCH MATCH and IMPORT RANGE

  7. QUERY, the function that DOES IT ALL! NOTE: More lectures incoming on this one :)

Ultimately, the point of this course is to get some awesome skills for professional or personal use. And - above all - have fun doing it!

My course isn't like a lot of other online Excel or Google Sheet courses. Most of these courses force you to watch them build things and hope that you understand what they are doing. Instead of that old model, I've incorporated everything I've learned from my experience in the real professional world to make this the best online Google sheets course. The course includes:

  • Lectures

  • Activities

  • Projects

  • Exercises

  • Slides

  • Comprehensive Workbooks WITH Answer Keys

  • Extra Learning Resources
