About this Course

The course is created on the basis of three pillars of learning:

  • Know (Study)
  • Do (Practice)
  • Review (Self feedback)


We have created a set of concise and comprehensive videos to teach you all the Excel related skills you will need in your professional career.


With each lecture, we have provide a practice sheet to complement the learning in the lecture video. These sheets are carefully designed to further clarify the concepts and help you with implementing the concepts on practical problems faced on-the-job.


Check if you have learnt the concepts by comparing your solutions provided by us. Ask questions in the discussion board if you face any difficulty.
