Dr. Anand Lakshmanan
I found this course to be very interactive, and very well explained. SInce the Instructor was explaining and at the same time demonstrating it with a Spread sheet, it was very easy to comprehend and also follow the demo by doing it along by myself. This is a MUST course for anyone who uses Excel for anything more than as a calculator.
Marilyn Salientes McCormick
I learned a lot taking this course-I love how it is organized ad very easy to follow. It is actually fun following the commands and doing the shortcuts without using the mouse. I enjoyed taking this course and felt that my Excel skills improved quite a lot.
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!
Santiago Herrera Guerrero
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.

Maria Indriyanti
Some material and the Quiz cannot be continued
May Mee
The course is very useful indeed for someone who is unable to join excel and other Microsoft software trainings. It's actually good for leaning oneself and instructions on training videos are clear. I am enjoying all the lessons so far and I am really amazed how fast I am improving by watching and listening to videos. I am just a beginner in excel and after finishing half of those lessons, I feel more confident than ever. Thank you. CFI.
Racquel Bryan
Great refresher and a great start for beginners
Nikolaos Vlamis
I didn't like that the instructor used the keyboard so much in a prerequisite course like this. It was like he wanted to show off his knowledge (with so many shortcuts) rather than to help someone who tries to learn something because it is so hard to assimilate so much information directly something that makes the whole lesson difficult to understand and inappropriate. Within the course i suppose that the level will be more advanced and we will have all the time to do try more complex things thats why i believe that it would be very helpful to change it
Azhar Sayed
Teaching methodology & presentation was excellent, content was fairly simple & easy to understand, would definitely recommend this course for people who want to gain expertise in excel, loved every bit of the course.

Brushed up my skills, learned so many excel short cuts, not used till now. A good course both for beginners and skilled users
Utsav Luitel
I recently completed this course and I have some suggestions to you that might prove valuable, since I have been facing the great use of these formulas when using Excel. In the Advance Formula Section of the course [Sum, Average, Sum product, Median] Data from above the section has been brought down by value paste. You can do this by using Lookup formulas or Index and Match formula since these are not covered anywhere in course, would be of value to new users. While the random number are generated on your basis, you could use the RANDOM function and leave it or value paste since these data changes frequently while using Random. What you have done is great, I just gave up some ideas where more formulas could be added. I hope my suggestions get some valuable feedback and review too.
Text are awesome
Balaji R

Md Moinul Alam ( Ovi)
I like the chapter that you arrange hierocracy and especially I prefer how we use the keyboard rather than the mouse . This thing appeases me Most is the freeze option, which option I need to alter in file option prior to starting excel work, how to calculate weight average and also the voice is so clear. However, sometimes videos show vague . I think authority should think this matter .

Josef Asmin
To whom it may concerns. I really enjoyed the course and the content was great and easy to understand and very well structured. There was one thing that made the course a bit difficult. As all short cuts introduced as well as all the quizzes and test are related to the English excel version which made it kind of difficult. I am from Switzerland and I have the Germen Excel version which all the short cuts are different. I am aware of the fact that I am presenting a minority of the students. I just liked to mention that fact. However, I really enjoyed the course. Best regards Josef

To use Keyboard shortcuts are really useful and fun. The only problem pops up when You have different keyboard than the standard UK, and Your Excel is not English but f.e Hungarian like in my case. To complete a test about shortcuts a bit difficult :) but manageable on logical way. Anyway to use shortcut was one if the take aways:) I gave 4*, the course was good refreshing the BASICs.

So far I love this course. Its very helpful. However, when attempting to answer the exercise questions, I have the right answers, but it still tells me I'm incorrect.

Only four starss because of the issue with answering the exercise questions.

It is useful for our tasks with the excel and we can enjoy with many shortcut keys instead of mouse. Thank for this free online course and I already completed it.
John Edwards
Horrible experience if you are a Mac user — the test questions provide silly shortcut keys that have absolutely no value to a mac user. There is no way to go back and find the shortcuts easily. If you are not willing to review the entire course again just to pull out worthless keystrokes you can't pass the exams. I was having a good time until the tests. I was looking forward to additional courses but I will have to say that I got discouraged after searching the internet for an hour to find keyboard shortcuts that have no value. I will come back if I am ever silly enough to buy a windows machine. Thanks, John

I've been looking for high-quality excel courses for a long time, and this one is exactly one of them. Well-structured course will guide you through all important Excel functions and shortcuts, including real practice which really helps to memorise and use new skills afterwards. Many thanks to Corporate Finance Institute!
Juna Avarachen
very good . easy to understand and detailed. Good job.
Raffaella Conti
I can't go through this course with my Excel for Mac 16.26. Mostly of the instructions are completely different and useless for me. The comparing table is not updated (? I guess so, because my worksheet doesn't answer to the shortcuts at all or the result is totally different from the expected one).
Anik Kumar Mallick
yeap, helpful enough to learn the basics. but it would be very appreciating if "data validation was included in the course

I am in middle of this course but ,I thought to rate this commerce,thank you so much... It's very interesting and I am just loving it..and thanks for the free courses. I want that you also provide free certificate for financial modeling 😅 with such great knowledge. I am from India can I get to know how much I would have to pay for financial modeling course.? It would make me clear , to pay right amount.
Mohammed Amjan

Barbara Kenny
This was a fantastic course. I am so pleased I have learnt so much. The programme is so easy to navigate, and the downloads to follow and learn. I think it is great, that CFI are encouraging those to learn, who perhaps may not be able to afford expensive courses. I will absolutely recommend to people. I actually already have. There are so many programmes to choose from, and another incentive is that if you are not entirely sure which career you want to work towards, these short free courses are a taster, to see if they are suitable for you. Thank you CFI. Kind regards Barbara Kenny

This course has been helpful. I really appreciate it. Now I have a skill in excel and I'm gonna continue practicing it. Thanks

Overall very good presentation. Towards the end, the lecturer was not explaining formula in detail, so I had to stop the video and look at each cell that comprises the formula. But overall, great!

It is an excellent course that every commerce student has to complete on this competitive world. In my profession, this is helping in a Great way. I recommend this to all my family, friends and colleagues.
Joshua Stedford
Excellent training videos, learnt loads in just a few hours. However, it is quick-paced for those who are less familiar with keyboard shortcuts and I had to pause many times and resort to split-screen on WIN10 to keep up. Also, a few of the values that were entered in were unexplained (i.e the ones without a formula. Why did you choose this number in particular? even if the number choice was random, it would have still been nice to know about it). Anyway, I'm really glad that I took this course, and I have very few complaints. Will definitely be returning. P.S: I would critically review this course 4.5/5, but as this isn't an option, I've rounded the stars up, not down, as it was so helpful and free of charge.
Iva Kraljic
All the videos are very helpful . So thanks for the opportunity and helping me to understand the excel by itself .
Charles Lu
This was a great way to learn. it helps ma alot with my financing
Md. Abdul Farooq
This Crash Course is very enjoyable from lesson to lesson. Throughout the course I have learnt lots of Excel Short-cut which must accelerate my speed in excel. In-fact the material and exercises were good enough to learn some key short-cut and basic excel formula.
Marco Pelser
I'm already proficient at Excel without a mouse, and love for the first time (not kidding) hearing another professional with more experience than I actually say how important it is to be mouse free for overall processing, formatting, calculating and typewriting speed. I've believe that for so long but sadly all the places I have worked people don't encourage that enough. Often, patience is not people's strongsuit but it is so worth it. It took me two years to master touch typing and another year to touch type effectively all the Excel commands. It is so worth it, especially when seeing Excel continuing to expand into newer versions. It is a powerful skillset I have never regretted since acquiring. I did learn quite a few new shortcuts here too. Thank you!
Reuben Ansah
I have enjoyed my time going through this course. The course is well structured and organised. The facilitator is superb. I am looking forward to taking more courses from Corporate Finance Institute.

Camila Thais Higa Lopes
Great Excel course for basics and advanced users! I recommended it!
Daphne Matiza
Amazing course! Very well explained and very helpful for my day to day use.
Kelly O'Connor
Really displeased with this class. 1) Only Microsoft Office 2019 & Office 365 are available for purchase currently 2) Microsoft has announced that they will no longer support Office 2016 in 2020 3) There are not enough Mac prompts to show the Mac keys along with the PC keys popup 4) the PC to Mac excel short cut download does not have the shortcuts that the teacher is using There should be separate class that goes into how to do the PC to Mac shortcuts so we can follow along with the instructor. Or you all should upgrade to Office 365. There is no point in buying an Excel 2016 or Office 2016 at this point, because Microsoft will no longer support it. Really disappointed and don't know how to continue with the FMVA program.
Jasmeet Singh Bagga

issac hoschander
This course on the excel shortcuts was great, however only for PC. Since the creation of this class MAC has updated and many the discussed shortcuts are now available on MAC as well. I think updating the slides to include MAC shortcut is in order.
Emanuel Thiago Lima dos Santos
Definitely, I'm not a master of an Excel, however, I was wondering a course training with more advanced skills. At least formulas, sum IF, Vlookup, Vlookup H, Index, Matches. What I do believe is not considered advanced.

Nina Lukka
Hello, I really liked your course, but maybe you need to know that as the videos were playing, very often the headline screen of the excel video would turn black, so i could not see what the instructor was showing, but could only hear. It was ok, but maybe you could fix it. Kindest regards, Nina
Mubarak Nasser Al Mansoori

Reinis Rudolfs Ozolkaja
I am using Mac, so I try and learn all the mac shortcuts presented in this course. It is, however, confusing that you ask in the quizzes to give answers about Windows hotkeys, which are not relevant to me. You could at least in the quizzes write in brackets the corresponding hotkeys to Mac, which shouldn't be too difficult. Also, it is a bit disappointing that you do not indicate some very important Mac shortcuts and only present Windows shortcuts, for instance, locking cell references (F4 for Windows) is Cmd + T on Mac, which I think is one of the most important shortcuts to know.

Akshita Tiwari
Hi, I used this course to help me get started with the basics of Excel for financial analysis. The sessions were well structured and well-paced. The only issue I faced was the lack of keyboard shortcuts since I use a Mac. I suggest using Windows laptop to get the maximum ROI from this course.
Anirudh Agarwal
good with basic excel stuff.. since a lot of focus has been given to using just the keyboard and hence the shortcuts, the shortcuts needs to be updated for mac users as well, lot of shortcuts that are given are old dont work on the new excel..hence all the more confusions...
Tanvi Kapadia
For someone who is just testing the waters and gearing up for an in-depth learning of financial modelling, this is an excellent course. It has prepared me to take up a more challenging module.

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!
Chantelle Galea
It was very interesting.

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.
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.

I liked the course a lot, it was exactly what i needed to improve my skills and to remember what i learn in collage.
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.

Saroj Kumar
What a explanation from scratch .
Notago Narib
Super! Good for refreshing and polishing your skills.
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!

Fernando Marquez

mithun hegde
Very nice Presentation and Script. Easy to understand and a simple way of explanation.
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.
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.
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.
Stanley Saldanha
The course is excellent and well designed. Although I am well versed with Excel functions, appropriate use of these functions in designing financial models was something new. Thanks.

The course was very informative and I look forward to doing others too. However in the introduction part, the tutor was to talk about the developer feature found in the excel ribbon. Kindly look into it and keep up the good spirit.

Njabulo Vincent Hadebe
A great course, very simple and well taught. All free, I really enjoyed this. More interested to learn more just not fortunate enough to be able to afford it. I am a junior analyst and learning on the job and do not have access to funds in order to develop myself. The search for another video which is free to teach continues. Well done on the layout as well its really easy to follow and hard to forget. The lesson planner in this regard is very good.

Excellent resource for learning keyboard shortcuts vs using the mouse, as well as some modeling tricks.
David Anthony
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
Robertson Abraham
The instructor kept it simple ;) and it was easy to follow. It was also useful to work out the examples along with the lessons. I'm very satisfied.
Bairapaga John
Awesome Experience in learning. I learned well by practicing. I also learned how to use the only keyboard for Excel functions. Thank you.
Robert Harriman
I had a pretty good functional knowledge of Excel already, but the review was certainly worth my time and with Excel it seems there are always new shortcuts and tips to learn. Great course!
Mohamed Kanneh
Challenging and interesting and what really makes it meaningful is the fact that you can also use the course to give a full lesson in Excel.
Joanne Wang
This course is for Excel professionals who are familiar with Excel and shortcuts. The most impressive points are the professional format of the financial report and the shortcuts. You can get rid of the mouse after you can memorize and use the keyboard shortcuts you have learned from this course. Thank you CFI!
Olga Filatova
It is very useful for daily work as it takes a wide range of Excel functions. Never thought before that Macro is so simple.

This was an excellent learning session for me. The mentor was so good. That's why I have learnt so quickly and in a easy manner. Thank you so much!
Yves Seybel
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
Bimbashree K.G
I Think this the best free Excel course I have ever attended and I am enjoying learning from it, Thanks
Ajay Mangal
This is the best and most concise course on Excel I have come across. For people in a finance profession, it is necessary to understand and learn excel spreadsheets thoroughly, which is an indispensable tool. I thank the team at CFI for having created this course. Thank you.
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.
Dimitar Drumev
Amazing Job Tim Vipond! Keep up the good work!
