    Microsoft Excel really has a variety of uses. Beginners may just see excel as something not that useful but as you learn and explore its functions and commands, you'll definitely be amazed with it. It makes things easier and faster, moreso if you're an into advanced excel.

    This is a great resource. I spent quite a bit of time trying to train the teachers at my school how to use the software we already have. Timelines are a big buzz - especailly with the social studies teachers. Thanks

    I found this session very helpful in that I never really knew what really went into excel. Granted, I'll probably have to go over the session several more times to get a grasp as well as understanding...I believe it;ll be worth it.
