The tutor was very good and ensured that we understood guidance and instructions. I would only sign up to this course if you have at least a basic understanding of Excel spreadsheets so that you make the most of the time which actually flies by.

I have knocked off a couple of stars because of the varying knowledge of the attendees meant going over the very, very basics of Excel which took quite a bit of time and the session felt rushed towards the end because of this.
