## Overview

Learn how to analyze data with spreadsheets using functions such as SUM(), AVERAGE(), and VLOOKUP().

This course will dig deeper into some of the core functionality of Google Sheets. There's a whole bunch of predefined functions we'll cover, like `SUM()` and `AVERAGE()`, and `VLOOKUP()`. We'll apply these techniques to do some analysis on your grades in school, look at performance statistics within a company, track monthly sales, and look at some real geographical information about the countries of the world.

## Syllabus

Predefined functions
-This chapter introduces a very useful feature in Google Sheets: predefined functions. You'll use these functions to solve complex problems without having to worry about specific calculations. Weâ€™ll cover a lot of predefined functions, including functions for numbers, functions for strings, and functions for dates.

Conditional functions and lookups
-In the last chapter of the course, you'll master more advanced functions like IF() and VLOOKUP(). Conditional and lookup functions wonâ€™t seem so scary after you completed this chapter.
