Course description

It isn’t uncommon for new users of Excel to face challenges when it comes to selecting and formatting content. In this course, Microsoft Office expert LeeAnne McManus will demonstrate the various methods and tools available in Excel to search for data and to format it into cells, columns, rows and sheets.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


Prerequisites

This course assumes that students are familiar with the basic use of Windows and common use of the mouse and keyboard. No prior experience with Excel is assumed.
