Description :

Remember when you went to update last year’s budget projections and you wondered why certain formulas were there?
Have you ever opened up a spreadsheet that someone else created and wondered “What the heck?”. 
Chances are those worksheets were put together on the fly rather than designed well.
It takes a little bit of time up front, but it is definitely worth it.
Take a look at this course as you start to set up your budgets and year-end financial information and it will pay dividends next year when you open them because you won’t need to wonder why that 10% is in cell J4 and why you can’t figure out what that formula in cell T300 is doing. 
This course provides step by step instruction and Excel practice exercises as well as accompanying answers.
