Attended: Powerpivot Fundamentals

Class was very well run, with friendly, accessible, clear instruction. From the class description I was expecting to have more general Excel overview included, which would have been helpful, as the level of data being used for the class examples was quiet high. But even without that, the information was still manageable even for unexperienced Excel users like myself.


Attended: Powerpivot Fundamentals

This class was great, but my only feedback would be that I don't think it's accurate in the description to say: This Excel class is perfect for those who are new to Excel, have been using Excel without any training or need to gain a solid grasp of how to use it effectively. This was a much more advanced class than beginner excel level. The examples and formulas were complicated. But overall I learned a lot and I liked the format and the manual is very helpful. Thank you!
