Dany - worst instructor ever. Here is why: thick accents, stutter a lot (every two seconds), unclear objective and messy content. Overall an annoying class. Invest your money into something else, you've warned.

I would have given this course more of a chance, but apparently does not cater to the Mac users. Downloaded 2016 Excel for mac following their links provided and later learned it does not work with the course content very early on. (Histograms to be exact) Forums was not helpful in that regard and just occasionally linking to another link that does not help in anyway instead of giving a clear cut answer.

Excellent content, instructor clear and takes you through the course at a good speed. If you're rusty on Excel and PowerPivot it is worth taking the preceding course as a refresher.
