Level 1: The Basics


Take a detailed look at Excel from the comfort of your own desk with our innovative live e-learning series. In this first step, you'll look at how Excel can be used in a business environment, and understand how to apply its functionality in your role. Beginning with an overview of the software where you'll look at common Excel terminology and concepts, you'll then move on to consider how spreadsheets are formatted for easier understanding by users. You'll get introduced to Excel's formatting techniques through hands-on exercises and live demonstrations over the web to create spreadsheets which look good and present information clearly and effectively.

From here, you'll move on to understanding how formulas are constructed, and perform calculations using several of Excel's functions. The course finishes by troubleshooting some of Excel's common issues, such as effective printing, and fitting information onto the screen.
