I'm sure if you are looking at this course, you already have some experience with excel but don't really know how to use excel to its full power.

There are so many different buttons and features in excel that it can become really overwhelming, confusing and frustrating.

I can relate.

I've been using excel since high school but it wasn't until I started getting properly trained that I really understood the different options, tools and functionalities excel really had.

It was a shift in my career.
