What do the students have to say about the course?

"Well, I began this course knowing next-to-nothing about Excel. And I'm only at lesson #5 or #6 (after about 20 minutes time). Nonetheless, her diction is clear -- she's using (I'm assuming), a written script, and thus everything she says is easily understood. Better yet, there is a very-easily-seen yellow circle surrounding her mouse, so there isn't a second of time when one has ANY confusion about the various maneuvers she's employing with her mouse. AND, she neither speaks nor moves too quickly. All in all, I'm impressed . . . and eager to keep forward. (And no, I have no connection with, nor even the slightest knowledge about, the instructor. But she's really good at imparting new information to a total newbee such as myself!)"

"I feel that it was organized well & segmented enough to where it would not overwhelm & can be picked back up easily to continue further study."

"Strong introductory course"

"She is a very thorough instructor. I look forward to taking more classes in the future from her"

"Awesome step by step for a true novice, never goes to fast and explains everything so you can't miss anything. Very refreshing for someone to really take the time and explain every details of the ongoing of steps and doesn't just assume you know everything already."
