My experience stems from college, with my degree in Finance, as well as current and past experiences at work. I used to work at One West Bank as a Valuation Analyst, where I would use Excel every day doing financial analysis of mortgages. In programming, I have used Excel both producing workbooks and using them as inputs, so I have a few different perspectives of Excel.
Anonymous gave this class 5 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.
The instructor was very nice and welcoming, but he made mistakes along the way, didn't provide a ton of explanation or depth to each topic, and ran over time. I felt that the description of the course was a little misleading, as we didn't really cover formulas that much. I was under the impression it would be a quick refresher on the basics and then a focus on key formulas to help with efficiencies. Pivot tables weren't covered within the time of the class, and we only did one example per section instead of looking at different use cases. Someone would ask a question, they were told it was coming up, and then never addressed again (partly because we ran out of time, partly because it was forgotten). This happened a few times. This is a very basic class, so if that is what you are looking for, great. But the topics weren't gone into in depth due to the amount of material and time restrictions. I would look for a more in depth course description next time or some pre-work samples.
