Spreadsheet Tips Workbook
This week, we’re having another Excel giveaway! Jon Wittwer, from Vertex42, has just published his new Spreadsheet Tips Workbook, with 140+ Excel tips. All the tips are in an Excel file, with practice areas where you can test the tips as you work through them.
Some of the skills are for basic users, and more than half are at the intermediate to advanced level. You can mark each section as completed, as you go through each topic, and see your progress at the top of each sheet.
On the main sheet, you’ll see your overall progress, and how much you’ve completed in each category.
There are links to videos and other articles, throughout the workbook, so you can dig deeper into the topics that you’re most interested in.
I was impressed by both the content and the layout of the workbook. In addition to learning great Excel tips, you’ll be inspired to try some of Jon’s navigation and design ideas in your own files.
