Excel 2016 From The Beginning
This course assumes you've never worked with Microsoft Excel in your life, or you are upgrading from a previous version. Your professional trainer, Toby, will start at the very beginning from installing the program to creating your first Workbook and entering data. Before you know it, you'll be using Excel 2016 like a pro with advanced functions.
At Simon Sez IT we know Excel and we know learning it can't be rushed, so we take the time to explain how everything works. This is an in-depth introduction to the world's most powerful spreadsheeting software, not a quick walk through. If other Excel courses seem to be designed for people who already have experience with the program, this course will be a breath of fresh air. The videos keep things simple and carefully step you through each process.
Contents and Overview
This course starts with where to find Microsoft Excel and installing the program. Then you learn step-by-step, simple 1-2-3 methods for getting up and running with Excel 2016. Watch just the first few videos to have a basic knowledge of Excel. Then continue through the detailed 32 chapters of video lessons and 9 exercise files to gradually become a proficient user.
It's important to note that we don't assume you know anything about Excel 2016. We start from the basics. After installation we discuss what is new with 2016, using Touchscreen, opening a Workbook, and how to use Help to get additional answers when you need them.
Then we show you how to personalize Excel for your own use with exciting Excel Options. We discuss all the Ribbons and Toolbars, entering and editing data, backup and recovery, fill and series, and printing your projects. We also work with formulas, functions, sorting and filtering data, creating charts and graphs, and much more.
