Welcome to Excel Exposure!
Congratulations on deciding to improve your Excel skills.
Sometimes the hardest part is getting started, so you’re already doing a great job!
I created this site originally as part of University of Reddit. Since then it has evolved to be a free-standing Excel training platform. The course is 100% free and no enrollment is required. The goal is to expose the world to the amazing functionality of Microsoft Excel. This site will be an easy reference for Excel users of all skill levels so that they can refine their skills, become more efficient, and get the most out of this amazing piece of software.
This course will be a complete lesson & teaching tool related to Microsoft Excel. It will have sections and information applicable to all experience levels. It will be updated regularly with additional lessons, tips, and demonstrations of how you can get the most out of Excel.
This course will be taught using Microsoft Excel 2010, but most of the functionality can be found in Excel 2007/2003 (although it may be in a different location). I will not be focusing on the Mac version of the product as I do not have it. I plan on recording Excel 2016 video lessons in the future.
General knowledge of Microsoft Excel is recommended but not at all required. There are lessons of the site for people who’ve never even opened up Excel.
If you’ve never used Excel, I’d suggest watching the Beginner’s Introduction to Excel video lesson as it explains a lot about the program from a first-time user perspective, and discusses some examples from the course.
I try to make sure it is clear what the experience level should be for each lesson in the Lesson Guide.
The course will be hosted on this website. I will be posting a new video lessons regularly as well as quick tips and other informative links sporadically throughout the course. I am keeping the homepage with an up-to-date Lesson Plan with all relevant links as lessons are posted (grouped into logical categories).
The previously mentioned Lesson Guide has the intended order for going through the lessons if you plan to take the course from start to finish (with groupings for Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced).
Also, it’s always good to download the latest version of the Master Workbook so that you can follow along with the video exercises. It also serves as an all-in-one cheat sheet for Excel functions, shortcuts, and examples.
