Beginner Excel: Lesson 1

Entering information and understanding Excel Formulas

What this introduction covers:

  • What can we enter into Excel? Is it all about numbers? There are TWO more key things we need to enter...
  • What are the main data types
  • Why people who think Excel is only about the 'numbers' are doing themselves a BIG disservice

I want to introduce you to Excel formulas/functions. In this short lesson from my full course, we cover:

  • Functions: Excel's built in Formulas
  • Explaining how functions (formulas) work
  • This will lay the ground work for the days ahead!

Your step by step approach is excellent. Two days in the course and I feel I've learnt more with you in 2-3 hours than I have throughout my university education. Your real life examples really help in understanding!
