Thank you The information provided within is very useful and laid out with helpful tools, however it relies entirely on the PowerPivot function that is not available on a MAC platform, which was not listed in the course description and which made the course totally useless for my needs.

Very useful and well-organized course.

more advanced in 5 reviews

Very good introduction to some more advanced Excel functionalities.

This gave a complete view of more advanced options and how I can manipulate my data Some more assignments would have helped.

Although, I did expect things to be more advanced like in week five material and further.

Simple and effective guidance on the more advanced Excel functions like PowerPivot, scenario analyses and the developer tools were really helpful.The examples were given in a business context, hence making it easier to visualise the real world applications.
