What Our Students Say

Kudzi Samushonga CPA, CA MBA
Very Advanced
This is an excellent course for someone who wants to go into advanced excel, but I personally think it should be an elective rather than a core course so that it doesn't hold back someone who doesn't have the inclination to study excel at such an advanced level from completing the FMVA certification.

Excellent course! I have learned a lot of ideas and understanding on the excel functions and its combinations, charts along with tips which are also amazing, thanks a lot CFI !
baia ouldsliman
I really appreciated the quality of presentation and information presented. I could easily relate the formulas to analysis that we need to perform. The only issue is the quality of video is bit low as sometimes it was hard to see the formulas but the content was so clear that it did not make an issue for me. Thank you so much for sharing your experience in analysis with us.
