Essentials

This course is part of a Specialization (series of courses) called Excel Skills for Business.

In this first course of the specialization Excel Skills for Business you will learn the Essentials of Microsoft Excel. Within six weeks, you will learn to expertly navigate the Excel user interface, perform basic calculations with formulas and functions, professionally format spreadsheets, and create visualizations of data through charts and graphs.

Whether you are self-taught and want to fill in the gaps for better efficiency and productivity, or whether you have never used Excel before, this course will set you up with a solid foundation to become a confident user and develop more advanced skills in later courses.

A broad range of practice quizzes and challenges will provide great opportunities to build up your skillset. Work through each new challenge with our team and in no time you will surprise yourself with how far you have come.

Spreadsheet software is one of the most ubiquitous pieces of software used in workplaces across the world. Learning to confidently operate this software means adding a highly valuable asset to your employability portfolio. At a time when digital skills jobs are growing much faster than non-digital jobs, make sure to position yourself ahead of the rest by adding Excel skills to your employment portfolio.

I like the way they made this course is very useful in the daily life.Highly recommended.

very useful This is my first time taking any course with Coursera and I absolutely love it!

I aim to continue learning Excel Intermediate I.Kind regards and blessings,Alejandra Caro NA A very useful and joyful course.

I am very happy with the quality of the course.The lecturers were very friendly, easy to understand, and got their points across about different Excel related things very clearly.The subjects covered were very well suited for the beginner level, and the practice challenges and assessments just enough challenging to not allow the learners become complacent.I found the course very useful although I had some basic knowledge of Excel before because I had a lot of holes in what I previously learned, and therefore my previous knowledge was incomplete and not well structured.I will definitely be taking the intermediate course as well!

This course was very useful and I will continue with the Intermediate course!

Very useful course there are a lot of skills that you may miss or forgot.

Very useful for refreshing old stuff and learn some cool new Great course!

Thank you so much!

I can't be more satisfied with a course such like this one.I had a wonderful and exciting time studying and watching this course's videos.Thank you so much ...Mohammed.

Basic but worh, I raised my productivity so much with this course and especially with the ninja tips.

using excel in 6 reviews

The only thing that throws me off a little bit is I'm using Excel 2010 and I think the course uses 2016 which can be a little more challenging.

I would recommend it to anyone looking to start using Excel effectively for data management tasks.

I also learnt a couple of things and tricks, after working in admin and using excel didn't know!

And see you in the Intermediate I course :) Good content but rather basic.If you've been using Excel for some time, move directly to intermediate I love it, very helpful and engaging.

Though I have been using Excel for over 15 years in my career, the Excel Skills course has been exceptional.

I initially learned using Excel in Windows, have been a Mac user for years.
