What Our Students Say

Highly recommend!
Incredible course. Covers so much ground. You can pause and follow at your own pace unlike a live class. Learning to navigate with just the keyboard makes a huge difference to speed and accuracy. Tutor doesn't mumble or waffle on either. Very professional, it's helped me greatly.

The course forces you to stop depending on your mouse and only use the keyboard to navigate through excel. At first it's a bit difficult because you feel slow but by the end of the course you will be used to using only the keyboard.

Valenton Wallace
Excellent presentation. One interactive exercise "may" have a included a question that was covered later on in the course (possibly exercise 3 or 4). Beginners would have to pay closer attention as the narrator does not always narrate what is being done in detail if it includes a step that was previously explained in another instance.
K Vijay Venkataraman
I found this course very useful and I found that the short cuts are immensely helpful and also I came to know more functions and how to use them. Especially the way to use them as a part of a profitability statement was a great tactic of teaching.

The way this course and its structure is developed and presented, is just awesome. The lectures delivered and the knowledge i was able to gain through them sharpened my financial modelling abilities by using excel. I learned a lot about various shortcut keys, short ways to deal with formulas , functions and the best thing was operating Excel without with a single click i.e. completely using a keyboard, made me realize how much time one can save by not being dependent on the use of a mouse. It really is good course and i would like to recommend all others who read my feedback to avail this free of cost opportunity to enhance your skills. Thank You, Tim Vipond!

I am giving you guys 5 stars because the platform and the way the instructor explains each part of the course are really good and clear.

I had a really good time learning and you can't say that about all of online courses and classes. You guys are doing a great work. Thank you! -Santiago Herrera Guerrero
