English [Auto] You're very welcome to my course. I'm preparing to take the Corps excel. Microsoft Office specialist exam the 77 7 2 7 exam this course is aimed at people who are relatively new to excel and particularly at beginners. However if you're already an Excel User and would like to get official recognition for your skills then this is the right course for you. If you're starting to learn Excel from scratch I've included lectures with which bring you from an introduction to the Excel User Interface all the way to being able to create formulas use charts and become a very proficient user of this great software package. If you have some familiarity with the software then I've structured a course to that you can go directly to the sections included in the maths exam and test your skills. That way you know what it is that you have to brush up on in order to get that valuable certification. Let me just explain my experience at maths core excel. I passed but I've been teaching I said to undergraduates for many years. So I should have passed however I attempts to days arm without doing any training for it. Luckily I got through but there were techniques examined which quite frankly I hadn't used in the past so it could have gone the other way. Training to pass is important and anyone especially you can get this qualification with the right approach. So on this course my aim is to prepare you to demonstrate your skills in Microsoft Excel by preparing you to take the Microsoft Office specialist exam in core excel the 77 77 exam your investment in time and energy and becoming a Microsoft office specialist will be very worthwhile. We all know that it's very competitive out there in the job market. Everyone needs an edge when they're going for interview and a Microsoft Certification gives you that edge. It makes the job of a hiring manager a lot easier when you arrive your interview and can demonstrate that you've been certified by Microsoft in whichever technology area you wish to specialize in. There are a lot of instruction courses on X out available on udemy. Indeed I've built one already which teach you how to use Excel to build small business applications. But this course is different because it is specific to the search vocation exam. You'll see lectures which are entitled objective domain with a number after the title. Well Microsoft examined what they call the objective domain for the subject which is really just a list of all of the techniques which you need to know in order to pass. Of course the examine the techniques by asking questions in a particular way. So I structured the course in order to provide a series of lectures which give you an overview of all of the techniques in a specific part of the domain and I then include a set of exercises which shows you the types of questions asked. These exercises are designed to make sure that you can perform the technique if by the end of the course you're comfortable with the exercise provided you have an excellent opportunity to pass. You'll definitely have the knowledge to succeed. I guarantee you that later on the course you see what the exam interface looks like. So there will be no surprises on the day of the exam. The most exams are based on real practical experience. The software in this case Microsoft Excel has to be used during the test. There are no multiple choice type questions. It's read experience with the product that is examined. So if you pass then people know that you're proficient in the level which has been testers. They can be sure of your skills. Some of you may believe that your skills in a particular aspect of the objective domain are strong enough to pass already and that you don't need to copy the lecture material. If so that's fine. Just go to the exercises covering the technique for that part of the domain and then test your skills. So without further delay let's get started with the course.
