What challenges did you have using Excel?
My name is Anne Train, and I’m a finance officer, working in public sector finance.
Obviously, I use spreadsheets all the time, in fact for several hours a day, every working day. To get a promotion or to get another job I needed to have better Excel skills. I recognized that in myself.
I did quite a few courses but they’re all a bit dry. It was stopping me being good at my job. It was stopping me from improving in my career.
Did you have any concerns about enrolling on the course?
I didn’t have any concerns, because it wasn’t mega expensive. Also, I got a good feeling seeing some snippets of the content and the way the course was going to be taught.
What was your Eureka moment?
My breakthrough was understanding pivot tables. I had the basic idea of them from previous study exams, but I really needed to understand them to use them every day.
The examples in the lessons helped me a lot. I realized I’d done a lot of these already and it boosted my confidence.
To be honest, I knew that when I went to job interviews that I would need to know pivot tables better and this course helped me understand them on a deeper level.
How did MyExcelOnline help you?
Well, for starters, I’ve got a new job using the skills I learned in the course.
Most importantly, now I feel I can use complex aspects of Excel without even thinking about it. It has removed any doubts I used to have about my own abilities with the software.
A lack of confidence like that affects your whole view of yourself and your abilities in Excel. This boost to my confidence is the most significant way this course has helped me.
Would you recommend MyExcelOnline?
I would recommend the Academy because, it’s not too expensive and it’s worth the money in my opinion.
I have found the lessons to be very easy to follow.
There are lots of great practical exercises with spreadsheets to practice on at your own pace.
This course allows you to go at your own pace and go over content as many times as you need to understand.
It’s for those reasons that I really would recommend MyExcelOnline.
