What is the difference between an Advanced Excel and Average Excel user?
An advanced Excel user is aware of the tools and features available and can apply the right tools for the right task, instead of relying on their go-to tools and making them work for every situation. Advanced Excel users, always find the optimal solution for every task, and they find it fast!
The way I picked this specific top 10 is purely based on my experience of what I’ve generally seen as “missing” knowledge by many Excel users. It’s difficult to define what being “Advanced in Excel” really is mainly because it means different things to different people depending on their interactions with Excel. When you think of it, using one feature over another doesn’t mean it’s more “advanced”, it just means you have more alternatives and more options of doing things faster and this puts you one step ahead of the average Excel user.
What differentiates this Excel course from the others?
The reason I created this specific Advanced Excel course, is because there are many advanced Excel users who are unaware of key features & formulas in Excel. I understand that when you take an Excel training it can be so broad, and a lot of courses cover too many topics. It’s easy to get lost. You might also not immediately appreciate why some features are useful and how you can practically apply them. We are creatures of habit and it’s difficult to get our head around learning new techniques. As a result you might be missing out on some features that can majorly simplify the way you use Excel.
Differentiation factor #1
Focus – The top 10 brings focus to the key Excel features which will provide you with a solid & a strong foundation in Excel.
Differentiation factor #2
Learn by doing – This Advanced Excel course is well structured and organized. You can download my Excel Demo workbook which I use to demonstrate each feature and practice along with me. You can then do an exercise from the Excel Exercise workbook to test your knowledge. Real learning happens when you attempt to solve problems on your own. Answers are provided, but do ask any questions if you get stuck. Your questions will always be answered.
Differentiation factor #3
Engaging – I have made every attempt to keep the course interesting and engaging by mixing talking head explanations with screencast demos. Each course is split by topic & feature. This allows you to easily pick what you want to learn now or review later.
My main goal in this training is to increase your awareness of the top tools and formulas in Excel to help you solve complex problems. Users are not aware of what they don’t know. Only when you know the extent and possibilities Excel offers you, only then are you able to handle any type of analysis with the best method.
Becoming advanced in Excel takes practice, readiness to learn new methods and willingness to apply these to practical cases. Take this course to get a head start!
