    "THE" course to take for Pivot Tables!

    Very powerful course. Teacher, Alex Moses was simply Superb in explanations, demonstrations and articulation of the materials. Just started a new job and this course helped me prepare my first analysis of a big project. Any newbie to Pivot Table NEEDs this course. I just wish that Alex can teach more other courses. There are too many Teachers on here with heavy English accents that are hard to understand. Mr. Moses, Please teach other Excel courses like Charts, Vlookups, etc..- if you do please ensure that Udemy announce it so I can buy it - because I could not find them. Thank you VERY much for the course. You rock!!
