Master Excel, Step-by-step

Excel: Master the fundamentals of Excel easily! The complete step-by-step guide for complete beginners.

Next to soft skills, being able to use Microsoft Excel well is probably one of the most sought after skills employers are looking for in todays competitive market. Make sure you can compete…

• Do you want to master one of the must have skills for any work place?
• Are you willing to invest a little time now for your own future?
• Want to learn some powerful, little known tools that most users don't know about?

If you are a complete beginner looking to master Excel, or you just want to brush up on the basics, you've come to the right place. If you want to earn more money by developing a skill set that todays employers demand, this is the course is for you!

Getting to grips with Excel will give you a distinct advantage in whatever work you currently do, and can open the door to new opportunities. Many of my students have gone on to get better paying jobs, or even start their own businesses, using the very skills you will soon master.

I spent over 20 years mastering Excel, so you don't have to!

In this course we cover in detail all of the basic functions of Excel, and you will learn not only how to use it, but some powerful tools to allow you understand how it works. There is a difference between repeating something and understanding it.

Who is this course aimed at?

Complete beginners, and those who want to build a solid foundation upon which to build their skills.

How is it structured?

Together we concentrate on building a single complete project from scratch, using all the basic functions and give you a thorough understanding. I know your time is valuable, so most lectures are between 3-5 minutes, allowing you to dip in and out when it's convenient for you. This also maximizes your learning, and makes it easy if you need to go back to refresh your memory...no need to click through a 40 minute lecture to find what you're looking for!...all designed to optimize your learning.

What do I get with this course?

• Over 50 bite-size lectures, each covering a specific topic in detail. Some of which I have never seen taught before!
• Downloadable source file, and pdfs that you can take with you and quickly refer back to if you are away from home.

Why take THIS course?

I have been using Excel for over 20 years, but there is a difference between being good at something and being able to teach it. In that time I have taught hundreds of people how to master its power. Because I have taught so many people, I know not to assume you already understand something, and I have probably already heard every question you are likely to have.

This course took over 4 months to produce, and has been tested extensively with scores of people. If something didn't work, or wasn't clear, it was revised until it did. Of course, we never stop learning, and I will continue to develop this course and your skills with your feedback. And remember, if you have a question, post it in the forum and I will answer it for you personally.

Get this course now, and...enjoy!

Great Course!
##### Gregory Floyd
Enjoyed the class! It was clear and concise. Thank you for the short video format, it makes things easier to navigate and reference. Well done! Looking forward to the next one in the series.
##### Amy Runger Staley
Alan is a great teacher, with a very relaxed manner, which makes following his lectures a treat. Apart from a slight sense of disjointedness towards the end, when some features seemed to be out of sequence, I found the whole course very enlightening. Thank you, Alan.

Hi, my name is Alan!

I have almost thirty years of experience in teaching various subjects and have held senior management positions at several blue chip and Times Top 100 companies. I now specialise in consultancy, interim work and teaching.

My love for Excel began soon after the program was released. Back then, we really only used it for typing tables in our production planning department. If you can believe it, I was taught to then calculate with a calculator and TYPE the ans...
