This course helped me as a Finance undergraduate student looking to become proficient and comfortable with Excel and its applications in financial modeling. I appreciate the focus on teaching keyboard shortcuts to speed up financial modeling and emphasizing efficient and dynamic methods to create models. What I would have preferred is for the instructor to have spoken a little slower on certain sections and for him to have narrated small details more often, especially when formatting. Nonetheless, it was a great and insightful course.

As a beginner in financial modeling, the course gave some foundations and the excel skills leaned have helped to notice the necessity of previous excel courses took elsewhere.I definitely recommend this short course, the content is clear and pragmatic.

By Jonathan Lamb on 5 months ago

Really well put together, slow detailed explanations so you don't fall behind. The only downside might be that the content truly is limited in depth but for the actual topics and skills it does cover, it does that very well.

By Dhruv Pathak on 5 months ago

The course covers important concepts in thorough detail. Given the 3.5-4 hours run time, making it a relatively short course, there is a lot of value that can be extracted from it.

By Berry Choi on 3 months ago

Was hoping for more downloadable resources. Perhaps more unique practice problems. Other than that, I learned a lot. Good job!

By Ian Vidalin on a month ago

Learned a ton of Excel Hotkeys & Excel Finance Best-Practices.

By Emiliana Cedillo Rico on 6 months ago

I believe it is worthwhile to engage in this course.I've learned many tricks to improve my excel skills.Shortcuts, macros, useful functions I've never heard about...I'm satisfied with the course goals.

By Dale Ede on 5 months ago

Wonderful course for providing general use of Excel. Although I have been using Excel for over 20 years, and I am self-taught, I learned a couple of functions that are helpful! The course is well paced and information presented clearly. I enjoyed taking this course and will be taking some others.

Very easy to grasp, sometimes goes a little fast but you can always rewind.
