Microsoft Excel is second only to Microsoft Word as the oldest and most powerful pieces of industry standard software from Microsoft for the Macintosh operating system. Let long-time user and veteran instructor Tamás Revoczi teach you how to create basic worksheets in Microsoft Excel 2011...
A seasoned lecturer and dedicated educator, Tamás has instructed at a variety of recognized post-secondary institutions including the Vancouver Film School (VFS), The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Capilano University for nearly 2 decades.
After a basic tour of the new interface, including the Ribbon and menu systems, you see how easy it is to manipulate your worksheets and the data they contain. You also learn how to add and insert special characters and symbols from various sources, which help you to represent the different data types available.
After a solid grounding in the basics, you bite into the juiciest parts of Excel: Formulas and Functions! While this course covers only some basic functions and formulas, you also learn some important background concepts about data formats, operators and the precedence rules by which they are applied.
As the pièce de résistance, you get to create a calorie tracker which not only encapsulates all the tasty and nutritious Excel tips you've learned throughout the course, but provides you with a powerful diet tool to help you lose weight and improve your health and fitness!

This is a great course. I learned a ton. The broad priciples are also applicable to Google Sheets and Excel for windows. Now I just hope that TamÃ¡s will follow up this course with a more advanced Excel for Mac course!
