About the Course

DESCRIPTION
Microsoft Excel is a very powerful data processing tool that has been around for decades. I first started using this program as a young child and have witnessed its many upgrades over the years. With each update it has only become better. With the world now entering the information age, our ability to handle, process and manipulate data is one of the most important skills to have.
