Lesson Guide

Learn Excel Online – Improve Excel Skills! Free Online Excel Training Course

Since the Excel Course Lesson Plan on the home page has the videos grouped into logical categories, I thought it would be important to provide a recommended Lesson Guide for watching the videos and tutorials. I’ve tried to group them into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced (based on complexity).  More importantly, they are ordered in the way that I feel would be most effective for learning Excel. This allows for the knowledge from prior lessons to help in understanding the more advanced ones. If you plan on going through the entire course, I would recommend watching them in this order. All lessons are video tutorials unless specified, with the total video time next to each link.

Make sure to download the Master Workbook to follow along with the lessons!

    • You need to specify the range of cells you want to sum i.e.
      =SUM(start cell, end cell)

      Make sure you add the ‘(‘ after =SUM to get the option to select the range on your page.

  16. Hi there,
    Until today I was self-taught, very slow process, trying to keep up to speed with documents I’m managing for my volunteer organization. You have clarified things so much for me and helped me to be much more effective! I’m looking forward to progressing through many more lessons in order to use Excel to its fullest! Wonderful lessons, well-taught, very thorough! I will be recommending this site to many others.
    Thank you,

  17. Hi Ben, and others,

  18. This site has been very helpful. I have never had to be a heavy Excel user and my new position requires a lot of Excel work. I am working through, and need, all the lessons. have this site bookmarked at work so I can grab a tutorial whenever I need.
    Thank you Ben!

  21. Thank you so much ben for this awesome website.I was away from Excel for many years and almost forgot everything but you saved me now!

  22. This is so incredibly helpful I can’t thank you enough. If you aren’t a teacher, you really should be.

  23. Many many thanks for all your Excel videos! I’m a computer illiterate and never in my life thought that I could learn the basics of Excel in such a short time and in the comforts of my home + with all that flexibility!! Awesome!!

    • Hey Raghavendhra,

      So glad that you found the site/tutorials to be useful! It’s actually not a team but just myself who created & operates the site.

      Getting positive feedback is what makes it all worth it.

      Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or suggestions.



  24. These lessons are brilliant. Nice to have them organised in terms of difficulty progressively getting more advanced. Very useful reference also when I need a quick tip on a formula or a technique i have forgotten about. This is a real help for me as a finance analyst!

  25. you saved my life with these videos!!! I have a job interview in a few days and did not read the job description properly and it said must be proficient in excel, i have used excel but that was years ago and forgot almost everything, so at least now when I go for my interview I can say it’s been a few years but I’m re teaching myself. THANK YOU!!!!

  26. In fact, I recently bought a course on MS Excel, but the quality of this course is way higher than paid course both in terms of quality of content, presentation, and organisation. It is indeed an excellent resource. I present my sincere appreciation to the creator for producing a highly organised and very effective course. Thanks a lot.

  27. Hello – again, excellent sessions. You mentioned you might be rolling out a third lesson around pivot table functionality. Today I discovered ‘slicers’ – pretty cool stuff. You might want to include in future pivot lessons. Thanks again.

  28. You guys are doing a wonderful job. I’ve been yearning to find a right place to learn excel and here am I. Thanks a lot!

    • Hey!

      As much as I would love to be able to do other products, I currently only do MS Excel 2010 and doubt I would be branching beyond that due to time constraints and work. Any other project like that would really take away from my ability to keep up with Excel Exposure.

      I’m sure there are some useful resources online though, and I hope you never stop wanting to learn!
