Hi I’m Zaid, your Course instructor. Here’s something about me

  • I’ve passed all three levels for CFA Program
  • I’ve Worked in the Financial advisory unit of a top-tier consulting firm

I would like to tell you that I am very impressed with your courses so far – I particularly like the short videos that allow me to get to a topic quickly and then move on (your competitors mostly offer 20-30 min videos which is a bit much to keep one’s attention span). The other gem in your training are the shortcuts, I found no other course with the same insights.

Because I use spreadsheets daily, I’m often using the Shift+down arrow to highlight and then manipulate data. Of course, this takes FOREVER! As I am advancing in my role at work, it is very important for me to learn more advanced Excel skills. I chose this video b/c it was short and condensed. I could literally watch it on my breaks at work and then use it right away. I really like that. Well done!

I’ve been using Pivot Tables for a couple of years, so was expecting most of this to be familiar. But this course proved me wrong. From simple tips and keyboard shortcuts, to whole features I never knew existed, I constantly found myself muttering things like “oh wow, I had no clue about that”. Things that I can actually put into practice in my job. It’s a great feeling. Kudos to the team on a great course
