However, even individuals who claim to be very proficient in Excel often encounter numerous features related to Excel that they wish they had known earlier. You will come across these features frequently in this course.

The following points stand out in Excel and in this course:

  1. Always think simple in Excel. Excel is designed to solve things in the simplest way possible. As you will see in this course, tasks can be solved so simply that it will probably surprise you how easily they can be solved.
  2. Even for the most complex tasks, Excel has a feature. If a task takes more than a few minutes, there is probably another feature of Excel specifically for that task. You will see these features in this course.
  3. This course is the product of extensive work experience. Consequently, all the questions you may have or will ask are answered within the course. If the answer to a question that comes to your mind is not in that particular video, it is in another video of the course.
  4. Excel, by its structure, gives you the feeling of touching the data. Regardless of the program, Excel provides users with a sense of confidence like no other.
