I came into this Excel class thinking it would be a very long course and would be hard to follow throughout the whole time. But alas, it was super engaging, easy, and thorough, and the instructor was a delight!!
I learned so much about the software, including keyboard shortcuts and more efficient ways of entering and visualizing data. The instructor was great and very professional.

The instructor teaches in a format that is good to learn in. She is always willing to answer my questions and take the time to show me something I don't understand or need help navigating. The content seems well-prepared and it is easy to follow with the instructor! I am a responsive person, and it is good for me to be an active learner, ask questions, and get feedback from a human teacher! Thank you!
Would highly recommend the Excel for Business class. It is beneficial at any stage of one's career.
I have not taken an Excel course since high school, which was over 10 years! This definitely helped me and I actually learned quite a few things I didn't know. I look forward to the rest of the Excel Bootcamp.
This course is outstanding! Anyone who wants to learn all the basics of Excel for business and is a beginner should take this course. The instruction was excellent and the format of actually working through Excel problems to reinforce the different areas covered was outstanding!!!
Took the Word and Excel basics as a refresher. The teachers covered the key features well. I like that you can do a free retake if needed. So much is covered that it acts to further reinforce the learning. A thoughtful addition is water, coffee, and bagels free to each student.
