“I learned so much in this Excel 1 course. My Instructor paced the class just right so you felt challenged but not overwhelmed (even with 264 pages). He ensured we were all engaged in the material and always allowed us an opportunity to ask any questions. He is patient and eager to help. I’m thrilled to have found this class and leaving with so much useful information. Overall one of the best instructors I’ve had! He did an amazing job!! ”
