The material was fine and taught me a lot about pivot tables, though I'm realizing I like the video sessions better. I think I learned as much from a 1.5 credit filter plus pivot table course as I did in this 5 credit pivot table course, and the additional time here seemed to be spent checking back and forth from the instructions to what I was doing in excel. Maybe it's just personal preference or learning style, but I felt I learned the same quantity faster from the video.

the course is straight forward and can be a good guide to pivot tables in excel. there is no need for high level of expertise but at least some ability to juggle with pivots to start does help. there are many different options and possibilities that might not be self evident

Intersting topic clarifies a lot of misconceptions around pivot tables. Always there is new information to learn. Might have been more lively if it was recorded on video
