was pleasantly surprised by this course. I have been using Excel for years and
was having trouble transitioning to the new layout, but in addition to learning
the new layout, I have learned to do things in Excel I knew it did but had never
spent the time to learn myself (for example using conditional formulas and
formatting) and most of the new things I will use in my grade books at work!
Sellers is an excellent instructor. Her courses are very thorough and
informative as well as engaging. I would highly recommend both Microsoft Word

teachers. Both courses are well worth your time."
