Don't know how useful the manual will be. I was familiar with a fair amount of the content already but there were a few interesting tips and tricks I learned. I was not at all familiar with Pivot Charts and some of the specific formulae we worked through which was useful. It is always tricky being self taught and knowing some aspects of a program in detail and others not at all to find the right level of course.
The Manual was only rated 2 as we didn't use it that much. I expect I'll find it really useful when I go back to the office and need a refresher when using certain formulas. The Facilitator was wonderful - really knowledgeable and friendly. I expected a larger size group as well, so a small group of 3 was great for getting individual help if needed. The course was quite fast paced at times, so may be better split over 2 days? But overall really helpful! Thank you!
Excellent trainer - Ebe was great at teaching complex formulas in an encouraging way and so that everyone understood. She also did a lot of group participation and was very friendly and professional. She kindly stayed longer to finish all the material (even though it is just before Christmas)! I would highly recommend her training.
