This course aims to morph you into an Excel power user. And it's designed to reveal the essential tricks and hidden shortcuts so you can do those everyday tasks in Excel faster and more efficiently. At the start of this course, we'll cover the top ten power shortcuts that all Excel users must memorize. From there, I'll show you how to make Excel fly by keeping your hands on the keyboard as much as possible. I'll teach you dozens of productivity tips, like how to customize the new ribbon interface by adding your most used commands to the quick access tool bar, cool keyboard shortcuts to instantly change the formatting of your text and numerical data, tricks for selecting rows and columns and ranges of cells quickly, and how to get Excel to enter data for you automatically.

I've developed this course so that it can be watched from start to finish and also used as an ongoing quick reference tool. With that in mind, I recommend you breeze through the entire course, but come back often for specific reminders, until you've memorized all the power shortcuts that are relevant to you and your Excel work.
