Microsoft Excel 2019 – Basic

Excel can help you organize, calculate, analyze, revise, update, and present your data in ways that will help the decision makers in your organization steer you in the right direction. It will also make these tasks much easier for you to accomplish, and in much less time, than if you used traditional pen-and-paper methods or non-specialized software.

Gain a foundational understanding of the basic functionality in Microsoft® Excel 2019, navigating its environment to perform the basic tasks associated with creating and saving Excel worksheets and exploring the Help system. Use formulas and functions to perform worksheet calculations, then modify those worksheets by manipulating cells and data; searching for and replacing data; and checking for spelling errors. Format worksheets and prepare them for printing, also working with larger workbooks that contain multiple worksheets. Finally, customize Excel to optimally meet your needs. This class aims to provide you with a foundation for Excel knowledge and skills, which you can build upon to eventually become an expert in data manipulation.

Please note: To ensure success, students need to be familiar with using personal computers and should have experience using a keyboard and mouse. Students should be comfortable working in a Windows environment and be able to manage information on the computer like opening and closing applications and managing files and folders.
