What people are saying

I would highly recommend // Core Pivot
I have been an Excel user for over 15 years, and colleagues would call me an expert. That being said, I learned things from this course that I will be using daily. I would highly recommend for anyone at any level. - Scott
I love the short video format // Core Pivot
I've used pivot tables before, but I'm learning a lot of new skills in this course. For example, I didn't know you could group results by numbers - great for summarizing data by age group. I love the short video format. It's perfect for a self-paced course. - John
I absolutely love the format and content! // Core Pivot
I just wanted to let you know that I'm about half way through the videos of the Pivot Table course and I absolutely love the format and content! It's very well organized and each topic is well covered but succinct. I've been recommending your website to coworkers and will absolutely take another of your courses if the need arises. No need to look elsewhere! Thanks so much :-) - Barbara
