Excel, is one of those subjects that are hard to learn without real-life examples with which to work them out. Which is why becoming an excel junkie is nearly impossible unless you are an analyst and must spend 8 hours of your 10 hour work day in excel.

And it’s not as hard as one would think. Breaking excel down into bite-size pieces and then having the confidence and courage to try out some of these lessons can help get you going.
