FULL COURSE DESCRIPTION:

__________

It's time to show Excel who's boss. Whether you're starting from square one or aspiring to become an absolute Excel power user, you've come to the right place.

This course will give you a deep understanding of the advanced Excel formulas and functions that transform Excel from a basic spreadsheet program into a dynamic and powerful analytics tool. While most Excel courses focus on simply what each formula does, I teach through hands-on, contextual examples designed to showcase why these formulas are awesome and how they can be applied in a number of ways. I will not train you to regurgitate functions and formula syntax; I will teach you how to THINK like Excel.

__________

By the end of the course you'll be writing robust, elegant formulas and functions from scratch, allowing you to:

  • Easily build dynamic tools & Excel dashboards to filter, display and analyze your data

  • Go rogue and design your own formula-based Excel formatting rules

  • Join datasets from multiple sources with Excel's LOOKUP, INDEX & MATCH functions

  • Pull real-time data from APIs directly into Excel (weather, stock quotes, directions, etc.)

  • Manipulate dates, times, text, and arrays

  • Automate tedious and time-consuming tasks using cell formulas and functions in Excel (no VBA required!)

__________

We'll dive into a broad range of Excel formulas & functions, including:

  • Lookup/Reference functions

  • Statistical functions

  • Formula-based formatting

  • Date & Time functions

  • Logical operators

  • Array formulas

  • Text functions

  • INDIRECT & HYPERLINK

  • Web scraping with WEBSERVICE & FILTERXML

__________

What gives you the right to teach this class? Can't I just Google this stuff?

I have a genuine passion for Excel that most people reserve for things like kittens, ice cream, and significant others. The only thing I love more than learning Excel is teaching it, and as the founder of Excel Maven and Maven Analytics I've been lucky enough to teach Excel to 200,000+ students across 180+ countries. My teaching style is conversational, authentic and to the point, and I will always communicate complex concepts in a framework that is clear and easy to comprehend.

As a full-time analytics consultant and Excel instructor, I cut my teeth using Excel to solve real-world business problems and develop award-winning analytics & data visualization tools for Fortune 500 companies. If you care about creds, I'm a card-carrying MOS Certified Excel Expert and my work has been featured by Microsoft and the New York Times. Ok so I don't actually carry the card, but you get the idea.

If you're looking for the ONE course with all of the advanced Excel formulas and functions that you need to know to become an absolute Excel ninja, you've found it.

See you in there!

I will not train you to regurgitate functions and formula syntax; I will teach you how to THINK like Excel. __________ By the end of the course you'll be writing robust, elegant formulas and functions from scratch, allowing you to: Easily build dynamic tools & Excel dashboards to filter, display and analyze your data Go rogue and design your own formula-based Excel formatting rules Join datasets from multiple sources with Excel's LOOKUP, INDEX & MATCH functions Pull real-time data from APIs directly into Excel (weather, stock quotes, directions, etc.) Manipulate dates, times, text, and arrays Automate tedious and time-consuming tasks using cell formulas and functions in Excel (no VBA required!) __________ We'll dive into a broad range of Excel formulas & functions, including: Lookup/Reference functions Statistical functions Formula-based formatting Date & Time functions Logical operators Array formulas Text functions INDIRECT & HYPERLINK Web scraping with WEBSERVICE & FILTERXML __________ What gives you the right to teach this class? Can't I just Google this stuff? I have a genuine passion for Excel that most people reserve for things like kittens, ice cream, and significant others. The only thing I love more than learning Excel is teaching it, and as the founder of Excel Maven and Maven Analytics I've been lucky enough to teach Excel to 200,000+ students across 180+ countries . My teaching style is conversational, authentic and to the point, and I will always communicate complex concepts in a framework that is clear and easy to comprehend.
