    I thoroughly enjoyed this course. There were lots of opportunities to practice what we were learning and I enjoyed that aspect of the course. I look forward to learning more about Excel and how I can become more efficient at using it in the workplace. The PwC staff in charge of setting this course up have done a fantastic job!

    It is first class material with rigorous exercises and examples and of course the applicability of the content is unquestionable. However, according to my personal opinion, one should take carefully into consideration the time that should invest in order to fully grasp the content of this course.

    The videos could be clearer and there could be supplemental videos going over complicated problems. The problems in the videos are way too easy compared to the cumulative exercises.

    Great course for an basic or Intermediate Excel user, many new tips and tricks are taught in this course which are not known to most of the people. The course could have more types of data analysis as it contains only liner regression and cluster analysis.

    It is a very nice course, but in between some of the videos are blur and its difficult to follow and hence difficult to complete assignment. All the videos that has female voice over is clear and formula’s are zoomed in but the one with male voice is unclear. video is blur.

    I was expecting more examples of how to solve problems, instead of an overview of different functions of Excel. In the lessons, the Excel functions are properly explained, but the workbook supplied for the weekly exercise, as well as the summary weekly projects, contain often errors or instructions that are not so straightforward. It is a good course if you want a quick overview of the most useful functions, but I think there are more complete and more polished course out there.

    I’ve learned a lot and love the format of short videos and hands on approach. I regret however that this course is getting outdated (2016) and that some excel sheets are full of errors (see Week 3 final) which have been reported more than 2 years ago (see forum) and still not corrected.
