Your Personal MS Excel Skills Report (an example report- complete it to get your personal report)
To help with sticking to the recommended self isolation, we are going to be opening up the MS Excel Online Intermediate course a few lessons a week. If you follow along (and stay at home) you may be able to do the entire course depending on how long the recommended isolation lasts.
The lessons will only be available for the next 7 days (25 Mar 2020- 31 Mar 2020). The week after, new lessons will be opened and these lessons will be closed so you need to keep up. If you want your friends to also be able to access this, forward this link.
Once you have learnt these tricks, make sure you use them for the rest of the week. It is the best way to cement your knowledge before you learn more.
How to use
- Download the Excel file via the link below (note this is the only place you can get the Excel file)
- Click on each lesson below and read/ watch while you look at the matching sheet in the spreadsheet (recommend using 2 screens or watch on your phone while you work on your computer)
- Do the exercises where relevant. Make sure you check the solution to make sure you got it right or to understand where you got it wrong.
- NOTE: in the full course each lesson has an MCQ at the end, but this is not available in this series.

Download the Excel file (see below) and if you go to the Intermediate course page, you will see the lessons that are open (they say preview) or else use the links below.
