Course Description

See why this is one of the TOP-RATED Excel courses on Udemy:
"At first I just said to myself, "Wow, Excel is capable of that? It's amazing!" Then as I continued through the course I told myself "This guy is doing magic!", and now I feel like I'm capable of doing the same. I'm definitely buying his other Excel courses!"
- Judit Bekker
"One of the very best Excel classes I've taken - great instructor, awesome production, very comprehensive and exceptionally useful. Well worth your time if you want to become an Excel pro!"
- Ernie Atkins
"I've been using Excel for over 20 years and consider myself to be an Excel "power user". As with every single course by Chris, I go in with pretty solid knowledge of the material (formulas, VBA, Power Query, etc) and walk out twice as powerful as I walked in. This course is no different -- I PROMISE you, you will find absolute gems in this course. You will never regret an investment in your future with Maven Analytics!"
-Ryan Hughes
This course is NOT an introduction to Excel.
It's not about comprehensive, 101-style deep dives into Excel's core capabilities, or about showing off cheesy, impractical Excel "hacks". It's about featuring some of the most powerful and effective tools and techniques used by Excel professionals, and sharing them through crystal clear demos and unique, real-world case studies.
Unlike most Excel courses, this one is non-linear and constantly evolving. This means that you can jump to different sections or individual lectures freely, and explore brand new Excel tips added on a regular basis. Each video is designed to be an independent and self-contained Excel demo, to help you learn these tools and techniques in quick, bite-sized lessons.
The best part? I'm including a downloadable Excel workbook and solution file containing every single Excel demo and dataset covered in the course -- ranked by difficulty (1-5 stars), organized by category, and hyperlinked for quick and easy access.
The Excel tips and techniques covered in this course fall into six categories:
  • Excel Productivity Tips (navigation, flash fill, cell protection, advanced sorting & filtering, etc.)
  • Excel Formatting Tips (freeze panes, row/column grouping, advanced custom formats, etc.)
  • Excel Formula Tips (formula auditing tools, fuzzy lookups, detecting duplicates, randomization, etc.)
  • Excel Visualization Tips (sparklines, filled maps, custom templates, Excel form controls, etc.)
  • Excel Pivot Table Tips (slicers & timelines, custom layouts, value calculations, etc.)
  • Excel Analytics Tips (outlier detection, monte carlo simulation, forecasting, CUBE functions, etc.)
While the level of difficulty varies considerably, the Excel demos generally start simple and become progressively more complex within each section. There are no strict prerequisites for this course, but keep in mind that some demos may be challenging without a strong foundational knowledge of the underlying Excel concepts (like Excel Pivot Tables or formulas, for example).
Students who have completed the full Maven Analytics Excel stack will be well-positioned to maximize the value from this course:
  • Advanced Excel Formulas & Functions
  • Data Visualization with Excel Charts & Graphs
  • Data Analysis with Excel Pivot Tables
  • Excel Power Query, Power Pivot & DAX
It's time to start working smarter, not harder. If you're looking to maximize your efficiency, supercharge your productivity, and become an absolute Excel POWER USER, this is the course for you.
See you in there!

Really valuable course and will be referring back to bits over time, but I think most of it sunk in! I've been using excel for analysis for some time, but never had any formal training, so I already knew a few bits on this course but it was good to learn more in depth and alternative formulas/functions and I've already seen some massive improvements in the work I produce. Thanks Chris, you really helped up my game!

This was actually last Course that I took from Chris! All others were done before.I left it as last..and it payed itself. There are several new things that I never used, or didnt see a purpose of them, but this course gave overview of lots of things inside Excel. Generally speaking, this course should be taken if you started with Excel, at least a bit more than basics that you got. So you can get a feeling what is actually inside it and what are the capabilities of Excel. Then, furthermore, if got interest you can always take another courses of from Chris, which are in my opinion amazing.Recommendation!!!Thank you Chris, looking forward to some new stuff from you!Greets!Mirzet

Some tips have been mentioned in other courses but overall most of them are useful. The Monte Carlo Stimulation example is interesting. Hope to see more courses very soon!

The units are excellent.And now - show time - Let's repeat it again!Thank you, Chris andBest regards,Olivera

By Trang Thuy Le on 2 months ago

Very helpful course for me :) I think all of these tips will be used frequently in our daily working, however the three final tips of analysis are quite more difficult than others. But still fantastic!

By Darryl Morgan on 2 months ago

Brilliantly presented course that covers all the essentials required for a well-rounded real world Excel user. And a great refresher for ongoing use. All of Chris's courses are exceptional. But put this one on the top of your to-do list.

By Phil Smith on 2 months ago

Awesome course, great examples all of which are very well explained and the downloadable examples spreadsheet adds value. I've learnt loads even though I thought I knew a lot already.

By Matthew Ratcliffe on 3 months ago

Another excellent course by Chris. I've been using Excel for years but this course was still full of tips that I didn't know and will be able to use in my day job. Worth the price I paid for ;;; alone! ;-)

By Prakhar Prasad on 2 months ago

Great tips but if you have already taken the other excel courses then perhaps this is just a quick brush up of all the pro tips you gathered on the way during the previous courses.

By Geoff Taylor on 2 months ago

This was an easy to follow course containing so many useful tips and tricks to make my life so much easier. I would highly recommend this course.

By Bryce Bartholomew on 5 months ago

This course had a lot of helpful tips that I now utilize in my day to day activities. It was fun to learn about some capabilities of excel that I didn't even know existed.
