Excel Productivity – Level 1

Learn Productivity Tips and Tricks

The goal is higher productivity, lower frustration. The way to that goal is to learn the little secrets a self-taught user never knew existed. This Excel essentials class is ideal for self-taught Excel users.

In this class you will learn how to customize Excel to suit your preferences; the Two-Step Chart; basic formulas; speedy data entry; controlling page layouts, columns, rows, and margins; and managing spreadsheets. You will also learn charting features (and the super-secret to charts) and by the time you are done, you will finally feel in charge of Excel, rather than at the mercy of it.

In-Class Exercises

  • Designing a useful form for use outside of this class (a big feature of Excel is form creation)
  • Design a personal yearly household budget spreadsheet with formulas and categories (a useful spreadsheet to take away from class)
