What to Know Before the Class

This is a course aimed squarely at beginner/intermediate Excel users looking to take their skills to the next level. Before starting this course, you should be comfortable working in Excel. Knowledge of a variety of formulas can be helpful, although is by no means necessary. While those comfortable with Pivot Tables are likely to pick up new tricks to make their lives easier, the course is designed to take someone with absolutely no Pivot Table knowledge and teach them how to collect, clean and set up the data, present it in Pivot Tables and build dashboards using Pivot Charts. A basic understanding of Excel functions is helpful, but not necessary for this course. The target audience of this course is for power users who are learning DAX for the first time.
