What other students are saying about the course:


Andrew Adolph:

I feel so lucky to have come across udemy and then a course on excel dashboards. I have always loved car dashboards, just displaying the most important info.

Today's dashboard in the business sense is the presentation of key performance indicators (kpi) for decision makers.

I am hooked on this course, and practicing making better dashboards. Adbelrahman is there to answer questions. To beautiful dashboards...

Luke Best:

Thanks Abdelrahman for an excellent course!

I use Excel most days so thought I had a decent grasp on how it all works. How wrong was I! This course has been a real eye-opener into what is actually possible in Excel and techniques covering how to present data.

I found the course material and presentation (videos) very comprehensive with plenty of examples to work through and use as reference for the future when I apply it all to my work.

An Excellent course and would highly recommend.

Michael Diamond:

I was impressed with some of the information presented. I have taken various dashboard courses to find little gold nuggets and i found a bunch in this course. The instructor provided some new twists for creating dynamic ranges, for example. He didn't present the normal formulas that I have seen from different sites but came up with some new approaches which caused my eyes to grow wider. I felt I was gaining a deeper understanding how excel thinks and works. His presentation showed me that he put some thought and effort into the presentation and made an effort to bring me from a Joe to a Pro!
