Had a blast with Michael today at business level 1! 7/28/17- Jesus B. attended Excel for Business Level I - Fundamentals
Great Excel class! I'm a pretty seasoned Excel user, so there were parts that were definitely review, but I still learned a whole lot. Michael kept the pace up, though not too fast, and he wasn't married to his agenda. He was flexible and was willing to answer questions at any time. The course materials were great, too, and there was sufficient time built in for completing exercises. I highly recommend. 6/27/17- Kate S. attended Excel for Business Level I - Fundamentals
