Microsoft Excel Advanced Course

Please Note: This course uses the Windows version of Microsoft Office 2016 for content and tests. Any other versions will have some differences in the functions.

The MS Excel Advanced Course is the longest and the most comprehensive of the three Excel courses presented here. However, if you have successfully passed the beginner and the intermediate courses, you should consider yourself fully prepared to begin the advanced course.

Formulas, or functions, are what advanced users of Excel want from this tool. When one uses formulas, not only can they see the data they require for their work, they can also analyse it and get answers to very complex questions. Though any person with a small amount of Excel knowledge can use formulas, such as SUM, a user who has advanced Excel skills will use other formulas, both alone and combined, such as MATCH, INDEX, DSUM and VLOOKUP.

In addition to knowing these formulas, those who are advanced users of Excel know how to debug these formulas, how to audit them, and how to choose the perfect formula for the occasion.

What you will learn

Some of the concepts that you will learn in the MS Excel Advanced Course include the following:

  • How to set a password to an Excel document
  • VLOOKUP Advanced formula options and manipulations
  • Other advanced functions including OR, AND, CHOOSE, INDIRECT, REPLACE, LEN, LEFT, FIND
  • Functions including CEILING, CORREL, DATEDIF, DATEVALUE, DAVERAGE and EDATE
  • Colouring a column and row with a formula
  • Highlighting a cell with a formula
  • Functions including ISODD, ISNUMBER, ISTEXT, ISLOGICAL, ISNONTEXT, ISERR and ISBLANK
  • Functions including DGET, DMAX, DPRODUCT, DCOUNTA, DCOUNT and DSUM
  • How to calculate depreciation in Excel, including SLN depreciation and SYD depreciation
  • Calculating loan IPMT and EMI
  • Functions including DATEDIF, DATEVALUE, EDATE, EOMONTH, MATCH and INDEX
  • Full explanation of the INDEX and MATCH functions, covering several modules
  • Looking up data
  • Selecting only cells containing comments
  • Hiding formulas
  • Automatically inserting serial numbers

As you can see, the information you will get from the MS Excel Advanced Course will fully prepare you for virtually any career path, including those that require advanced skills with this software. Once you complete the advanced course, you will have access to the full functionality of Excel and will know how to use all formulas, functions, and capabilities. Though this course is the longest and most involved of the three, once you complete it, you will have the knowledge and skills that most can only dream of.

This course opens with how to add a password, and also focuses on the VLOOKUP formula, offering several chapters on how to use this function. The course discusses the OR and AND commands, and also focuses on other functions, such as REPLACE, MID, LEFT, and FIND. You will also learn about calculating depreciation, calculating interest, and even calculating IPMT and EMI for loans, all by using Excel functions. Additionally, the course features information on INDEX and MATCH functions, which is extremely important in certain industries and positions. The course also shows students how to use the CHOOSE formula, and how to create special charts. Finally, the course will show how to automatically enter serial numbers and perform extremely advanced functions. The advanced Excel course is designed for power users.

The general population would not use the information contained within this course, but there are some features taught in the advanced course that can make your Excel usage easier. However, it is recommended that those who take this Excel course continue with the advanced course for a number of reasons. First, getting more knowledge about Excel can help you to master the beginner and intermediate concepts. Additionally, no one has ever lost anything by having more knowledge. You might find that knowing this information will help you in the future, too, as you never know when the organisation you work for might require the services of an Excel expert. These people are paid quite well and are an invaluable addition to most companies.

Too many people believe that advanced Excel concepts are only useful for those who are interested in programming or concepts such as financial modelling. This, however, is not totally true. The actual truth is that the information contained within this course could be the key to your next promotion or your next job.

Microsoft Excel for Beginners Course

Please Note: This course uses the Windows version of Microsoft Office 2016 for content and related tests. Any other versions will have some differences in the functions.

One of the most widely used programs for visualising and analysing data is Microsoft Excel. This software is used in almost every industry, not to mention for personal use in households around the world. Small business owners rely on Excel to track hours, finances and invoices, and large corporations rely on Excel for data analysis to visualise data and innumerable other tasks. Whether you are brand new to the world of Excel, or you have training and knowledge of the software and are looking to improve your skills, this series of courses can help. By the time you finish the beginner, intermediate and advanced courses, you, too, will be an expert in Excel.

These training videos help you learn at your own pace, as there is no time limit nor deadline to complete the courses. You can also access these courses from any mobile device, including tablets, computers, and mobiles, as long as you have access to the internet. Since the lessons in this course are only a few minutes each, it makes it very convenient for one to stop and start when necessary. This helps to study when you have time, even if you have less than 20 minutes.

Introduction to the Microsoft Excel for Beginners Course

This beginners course is recommended for anyone who might use Excel at home or at work for uncomplicated reasons, such as tracking simple expenditures or for calculating sums or totals. This course is ideal for anyone who has never used Excel or for those who have only a rudimentary understanding of the software. It is also perfect for anyone who is familiar with the older versions of the software, but not the latest version. If you are re-entering the workforce, you will also find that this course will suit you well, and will certainly get you caught up with your peers.

The course begins with explaining concepts, such as ‘What is a cell?’ and how to tell the difference between a column and a row. The course continues by explaining basic Excel concepts such as how to create, copy, delete, and cut information from Excel cells. You will also learn how to edit information that is put into a cell and how to insert and edit comments when using Excel.

The second half of the beginner's Excel overview, which is only a small part of the beginner's course, will cover sheets, which is an entirely different concept than cells. In this section, you will learn how to rename a sheet, delete a sheet, hide and unhide a sheet, and move and copy a sheet. You will also learn how to change the colour of tabs. After mastering the beginner's overview, the rest of the beginner's course will go further into these concepts, and then teach details on how to perform basic functions. Each video in the course gives a full explanation of the concept and the instructor visually takes students through each concept step by step on the screen.

When you finish this course, you will have a basic understanding of how to use many of the functions of Excel and will be able to use the program with ease. You will then be fully prepared to move ahead to the intermediate course.

Before jumping into the MS Excel Intermediate course, one should have a good basic overview of the beginner Excel functions. Those with experience in Excel might feel as if they can skip the beginner course, but it is best to at least go through the course and review it before starting the intermediate curriculum. Like the beginner course, the intermediate course is set up into short modules, and you can watch the module videos on any device that can connect to the internet. The curriculum in the intermediate course is designed for those who work with Excel in the workplace, and it is primarily for those who want to improve their skills with this program. There is a lot of useful information found in this course, and these skills are necessary for anyone who is going into investments, banking, or consulting, and will also be useful for administrators or for those who track or analyse a lot of data.

If you are someone who is new to the workforce, you, too, will find that employers are looking for candidates with at least intermediate Excel skills. The course teaches students how to use functions, including AVERAGEA, AVERAGEIF, AVERAGEIFS and ABS. You will also learn data validation information and students work through several modules, each of which are focused on a type of data validation, such as date, list, and time.

The course deals with more information on specific functions, which include CHAR, CODE, MEDIAN, MODE, and ROUND. Additional information is given on how to manipulate these functions to meet your needs as an Excel user. Other information in the MS Excel Intermediate Course includes how to change the text in Excel, i.e. changing text to all upper case or lower case. You will also learn how to change the background and add a custom image, how to use AutoFill and how to insert special characters.

Upon completion of this course, you will know about most of the functions that Excel has, and how to use this software at an intermediate level. Additionally, you will have the skills necessary to use Excel in most business environments. You will also be fully prepared to begin the MS Excel Advanced Course.

Please Note: This course uses the Windows version of Microsoft Office 2016 for content and tests. Any other versions will have some differences in the functions.

The MS Excel Advanced Course is the longest and the most comprehensive of the three Excel courses presented here. However, if you have successfully passed the beginner and the intermediate courses, you should consider yourself fully prepared to begin the advanced course.

Formulas, or functions, are what advanced users of Excel want from this tool. When one uses formulas, not only can they see the data they require for their work, they can also analyse it and get answers to very complex questions. Though any person with a small amount of Excel knowledge can use formulas, such as SUM, a user who has advanced Excel skills will use other formulas, both alone and combined, such as MATCH, INDEX, DSUM and VLOOKUP.

In addition to knowing these formulas, those who are advanced users of Excel know how to debug these formulas, how to audit them, and how to choose the perfect formula for the occasion.

What you will learn

Some of the concepts that you will learn in the MS Excel Advanced Course include the following:

  • How to set a password to an Excel document
  • VLOOKUP Advanced formula options and manipulations
  • Other advanced functions including OR, AND, CHOOSE, INDIRECT, REPLACE, LEN, LEFT, FIND
  • Functions including CEILING, CORREL, DATEDIF, DATEVALUE, DAVERAGE and EDATE
  • Colouring a column and row with a formula
  • Highlighting a cell with a formula
  • Functions including ISODD, ISNUMBER, ISTEXT, ISLOGICAL, ISNONTEXT, ISERR and ISBLANK
  • Functions including DGET, DMAX, DPRODUCT, DCOUNTA, DCOUNT and DSUM
  • How to calculate depreciation in Excel, including SLN depreciation and SYD depreciation
  • Calculating loan IPMT and EMI
  • Functions including DATEDIF, DATEVALUE, EDATE, EOMONTH, MATCH and INDEX
  • Full explanation of the INDEX and MATCH functions, covering several modules
  • Looking up data
  • Selecting only cells containing comments
  • Hiding formulas
  • Automatically inserting serial numbers

As you can see, the information you will get from the MS Excel Advanced Course will fully prepare you for virtually any career path, including those that require advanced skills with this software. Once you complete the advanced course, you will have access to the full functionality of Excel and will know how to use all formulas, functions, and capabilities. Though this course is the longest and most involved of the three, once you complete it, you will have the knowledge and skills that most can only dream of.

This course opens with how to add a password, and also focuses on the VLOOKUP formula, offering several chapters on how to use this function. The course discusses the OR and AND commands, and also focuses on other functions, such as REPLACE, MID, LEFT, and FIND. You will also learn about calculating depreciation, calculating interest, and even calculating IPMT and EMI for loans, all by using Excel functions. Additionally, the course features information on INDEX and MATCH functions, which is extremely important in certain industries and positions. The course also shows students how to use the CHOOSE formula, and how to create special charts. Finally, the course will show how to automatically enter serial numbers and perform extremely advanced functions. The advanced Excel course is designed for power users.

The general population would not use the information contained within this course, but there are some features taught in the advanced course that can make your Excel usage easier. However, it is recommended that those who take this Excel course continue with the advanced course for a number of reasons. First, getting more knowledge about Excel can help you to master the beginner and intermediate concepts. Additionally, no one has ever lost anything by having more knowledge. You might find that knowing this information will help you in the future, too, as you never know when the organisation you work for might require the services of an Excel expert. These people are paid quite well and are an invaluable addition to most companies.

Too many people believe that advanced Excel concepts are only useful for those who are interested in programming or concepts such as financial modelling. This, however, is not totally true. The actual truth is that the information contained within this course could be the key to your next promotion or your next job.

Microsoft Excel for Beginners Course

Please Note: This course uses the Windows version of Microsoft Office 2016 for content and related tests. Any other versions will have some differences in the functions.

One of the most widely used programs for visualising and analysing data is Microsoft Excel. This software is used in almost every industry, not to mention for personal use in households around the world. Small business owners rely on Excel to track hours, finances and invoices, and large corporations rely on Excel for data analysis to visualise data and innumerable other tasks. Whether you are brand new to the world of Excel, or you have training and knowledge of the software and are looking to improve your skills, this series of courses can help. By the time you finish the beginner, intermediate and advanced courses, you, too, will be an expert in Excel.

These training videos help you learn at your own pace, as there is no time limit nor deadline to complete the courses. You can also access these courses from any mobile device, including tablets, computers, and mobiles, as long as you have access to the internet. Since the lessons in this course are only a few minutes each, it makes it very convenient for one to stop and start when necessary. This helps to study when you have time, even if you have less than 20 minutes.

Introduction to the Microsoft Excel for Beginners Course

This beginners course is recommended for anyone who might use Excel at home or at work for uncomplicated reasons, such as tracking simple expenditures or for calculating sums or totals. This course is ideal for anyone who has never used Excel or for those who have only a rudimentary understanding of the software. It is also perfect for anyone who is familiar with the older versions of the software, but not the latest version. If you are re-entering the workforce, you will also find that this course will suit you well, and will certainly get you caught up with your peers.

The course begins with explaining concepts, such as ‘What is a cell?’ and how to tell the difference between a column and a row. The course continues by explaining basic Excel concepts such as how to create, copy, delete, and cut information from Excel cells. You will also learn how to edit information that is put into a cell and how to insert and edit comments when using Excel.

The second half of the beginner's Excel overview, which is only a small part of the beginner's course, will cover sheets, which is an entirely different concept than cells. In this section, you will learn how to rename a sheet, delete a sheet, hide and unhide a sheet, and move and copy a sheet. You will also learn how to change the colour of tabs. After mastering the beginner's overview, the rest of the beginner's course will go further into these concepts, and then teach details on how to perform basic functions. Each video in the course gives a full explanation of the concept and the instructor visually takes students through each concept step by step on the screen.

When you finish this course, you will have a basic understanding of how to use many of the functions of Excel and will be able to use the program with ease. You will then be fully prepared to move ahead to the intermediate course.

Like the beginner course, the intermediate course is set up into short modules, and you can watch the module videos on any device that can connect to the internet. The curriculum in the intermediate course is designed for those who work with Excel in the workplace, and it is primarily for those who want to improve their skills with this program. There is a lot of useful information found in this course, and these skills are necessary for anyone who is going into investments, banking, or consulting, and will also be useful for administrators or for those who track or analyse a lot of data.

If you are someone who is new to the workforce, you, too, will find that employers are looking for candidates with at least intermediate Excel skills. The course teaches students how to use functions, including AVERAGEA, AVERAGEIF, AVERAGEIFS and ABS. You will also learn data validation information and students work through several modules, each of which are focused on a type of data validation, such as date, list, and time.

The course deals with more information on specific functions, which include CHAR, CODE, MEDIAN, MODE, and ROUND. Additional information is given on how to manipulate these functions to meet your needs as an Excel user. Other information in the MS Excel Intermediate Course includes how to change the text in Excel, i.e. changing text to all upper case or lower case. You will also learn how to change the background and add a custom image, how to use AutoFill and how to insert special characters.

Upon completion of this course, you will know about most of the functions that Excel has, and how to use this software at an intermediate level.
