by Jecory Ellis
As a senior engineer for a large utility company and also currently enrolled in an executive MBA program at a local state institution I am no stranger to MS Excel. However, this course rejogged my very limited memory of a bunch of helpful hot keys, shortcuts, and functions that I find useful in my professional and academic career. It also taught me some new tricks that will definitely help to streamline my everyday job functions that require heavy Excel computations. This was an awesome course and I highly recommend for new, novice and even moderate users of MS Excel software. For those advanced users, I still recommend it with the addition of their advanced Excel course. I have not taken it, but if this course is any indication of whats in store - you will NOT be disappointed. Kudos CFI!

by Emmanuel Umoru

Great Course Materials and Structure

by Izabela Velkova
The Excel crash course is very helpful to brush up on different techniques for modelling. I highly recommend to professionals working in financial analysis or data analysis.


by Camille Adams
This course was great! Of course I would think so since I am not a Excel super user. The best part was learning the short cuts. Some are a bit cumbersome but well worth learning. During the course many light bulbs turned on for me and will make spreadsheets very workable for me in the future. One down side for me with the course is that I would have liked to see how Tim would teach v lookup and pivot tables. Tim has the ability to not stumble over his words, is a clear speaker and never tires no matter how many times I hit the rewind button. :) Great job! When I can afford it I would like to take more classes.

Very good

by khadir Mohammed

Very well put together course.

Excel Crash Course - Spreadsheet Formulas for Corporate Finance

by geoffrey collyer
Overall outstanding. Only marginal criticisms were that I didn't know you would get the spreadsheet with the full answers at the end sop had to keep going back to check formula. Also the tutor was very clear, but a little fast at times over the detail. Working on an Apple Mac makes the use of Microsoft short cuts difficult but I got over it.

great one!!

I found this crash course to be extremely helpful. I haven't used Excel that often, but I'm familiar with the basics and some formulas. The course found a good balance of simple, step-by-step instruction that is interesting for users of different skills. In some instances, I find using keyboard shortcuts a lot more cumbersome than a simple click, but I get what the instructor was trying to do... Thanks a lot!

by Vaishali Verma

Awesome Teaching

by Janani K.P
The teaching of the basics lesson is very nice and this will help us to understand each and every concept in detail. One suggestion from my side is to give the shortcut keys separately after the lessons so that it helps the basic learners to understand still more precisely.

by deeksha nigam
This was an awesome course. Crisp and precise. The trainer showed the techniques hands-on rather than just focusing on the theory part.

by Su Ann Tan


by Mamta Sahu
I like this course at the time of learning. I had also joined some other online courses but were not too effective. Their material and teaching was confusing. Your way of explaining each and every thing was great.

This is a great course! It's a very technical course, but, if one really wants to get started learning the latest in Excel financial modeling, this is the course to take. And, it's Free! I especially enjoyed the way Mr. Vipond presented the material. He is a first-class instructor who knows how to explain and simplify the technical matters of Excel and the complex matters of finance. I only wish CFI offered more Free courses! Thanks, Dave

Guys, I believed I was pretty good at Excel, and I still do (I actually teach it - lol). However, your work with keyboard shortcuts only and introducing a bunch of data analysis very early in the game was awesome! I'm very impressed so far and look forward to the rest of your tutorials

Review of Excel Crash Course

by Przemyslaw Janus
This course clearly and perfectly presents approach to financial model setup and analysis. During the course, a participant is led through best practices in model building and often hints how to do things easier in Excel. In my view, models built with these guidelines in mind will not only look more professional but also will be easier for others to follow and manage onwards. I will definitely take the opportunity to participate in other CFI courses as the material is presented in such an easy and digestive way that even those with very basic skills will immensely benefit from the training. I highly recommend Excel Crash Course - and I am sure that others will share my experience and take other courses as well.
