Excel 2010 Basic


Microsoft Excel. If it were a person, it would be the really intelligent guy in the corner at the party. He’s logical and mathematical, and therefore, pretty hard to approach. You feel like he’ll judge you for not knowing what he’s talking about, so you just don’t bother. You leave him in the corner and avoid him.

Time to change that. We’re going to introduce you properly, and you’ll realise that Excel isn’t scary or unapproachable. No, really! So, we’re going to start off nice and easy and show you the basics, and dispel those fears you have.

We know you want to learn all about Excel 2010, but we also know that your time is precious.

That’s the exact reason we’ve created them in small chunks, to enable you to dip in and out when it suits you.

You can spend as little as 3 minutes to learn something new, or refresh your memory if you’ve simply forgotten something.
