About This Course

Published 2/2015 English

Course Description

The old 80/20 rule for software—that 80% of a program’s users use only 20% of a program’s features—doesn’t apply to Microsoft Excel. Instead, this program probably operates under what could be called the 95/5 rule: Ninety-five percent of Excel users use a mere 5% of the program’s power!

On the other hand, most people know that they could be getting more out of Excel if they could only get a leg up on building formulas and using functions. Unfortunately, this side of Excel appears complex and intimidating to the uninitiated, shrouded as it is in the mysteries of mathematics, finance, and impenetrable spreadsheet jargon.

Here's the good news!

I have designed this practical course to give you the ability to master the Top 25 Microsoft Excel formulas with real world examples, by demystifying the building of worksheet formulas, and presenting the most useful Excel functions in an accessible and jargon-free manner. In this tutorial, you will be able to learn important functions such as:

  • Financial
  • Logical
  • Text
  • Lookup & Reference, and many more

I have included few bonus tutorials at the end of the course as well:

  1. Modifying templates and styles
  2. Copying macros between workbooks
  3. Working with external data
  4. Tracking changes in Excel 2013

The entire objective of this course is to dive deep into the Excel 2013 environment with regards to formulas in in order to make you more productive, efficient, and achieve a greater skillset!

To top it off: If you would like me to explain a particular formula of your choice, I would be delighted to create a hands-on tutorial - just for you!

With that said, this course will enhance your comfort level working with advanced formulas in Excel 2013. The concepts learned in this course apply to Excel 2007 and 2010 versions of Microsoft Excel as well. So, enroll now and take your skills to the next level.

This course is designed to provide hands-on experience in understanding the top 25 useful formulas in Microsoft Excel. Tutorials also contain real world examples and scenarios.

Section 2: Logical Functions
09:41

One common use for the AND function is to expand the usefulness of other functions that perform logical tests. Similarly, the IF function tests to see if a specified condition - the logic test - is true or false

IFERROR and XOR Functions
12:23
Section 3: Financial Functions
14:59

The Present Value or PV function allows the user in determining the current value of a financial asset. For instance, analysts can value a stock by forecasting its future profits, or cash flows, and discounting them back to today to get a current, or present value, for the stock. Likewise, Future Value of FV simply returns the future value of an investment based on periodic, constant payments and a constant interest rate.

PMT-PPMT-PRICE-YIELD Functions

Depreciation, in accounting terms, is a noncash expense that reduces the value of an asset as a result of wear and tear, age, or obsolescence. Most assets lose their value over time (in other words, they depreciate), and must be replaced once the end of their useful life is reached. This lecture explains the concept of depreciation as well various types of depreciation utilized for assets.

SLN-SYD-DB-DDB-VDB Functions
13:46
Section 4: Text Functions
11:09

TEXT function is especially useful when you want to embed the numeric output of a formula or function and present it in a particular format inside other text. For example, "Sales last year increased by over $55,878", where the number 55878 has been formatted to reflect currency symbol and thousands separator. The CONCATENATE function joins up to 255 text strings into one text string. The joined items can be text, numbers, cell references, or a combination of those items.
