ABOUT THIS COURSE


It's time to show Excel who's boss. Whether you're starting from square one or aspiring to become an absolute Excel badass, you've come to the right place.

This course will give you a deep understanding of the advanced formulas and functions that transform Excel from a basic spreadsheet program into a dynamic and powerful analytics tool. While most Excel courses focus on simply what each formula does, I teach through hands-on, contextual examples designed to showcase why these formulas are awesome and how they can be applied in a number of ways. I will not train you to regurgitate functions and formula syntax; I will teach you how to THINK like Excel.

"One of the best courses I've ever taken. You can see through his videos how passionate he is about Excel. Thanks for this awesome course, count me in for the next ones!"

- Julio Garcia

"I have just completed the course and can honestly say that this is the best course I have taken in my life. Chris has a real gift of explaining the more difficult Excel functions and making them accessible and understandable. I thought I already knew Excel well but I have learned so much and have already put a lot of it into practice at work. The homework exercises were really beneficial and made sure that each section was fully understood. I love Chris's teaching style so much I have already purchased his other courses and can't wait to get started!

- Jon Knights

"Chris Dutton is an EXPERT in Excel. He makes comprehensible to the student the complex (sometimes super-complex) nature of the formulas he uses. Everything that is written at the course description, although it may seem pure marketing and publicity at first glance, is indeed true. If I could rate it higher I definitively would. THANKS Chris!"
