 "I have attended few other Excel training courses elsewhere. The fundamental difference is: most other courses teach you WHAT is Excel; the Super Excel course teaches you HOW TO USE Excel. I was especially impressed with the thought process the instructor demonstrated in class. He made those formulas alive."
