I found the class to be very helpful and the instructor really made it easy to understand and made excel less intimidating for me personally.
- Aneka Gordon, Marine General, Greenbae

Excellent. Instructor was clear and very knowledgeable of the subject matter. Pace was neither too fast nor too slow.
- Mary, Berkeley Unified, Berkeley

It was interesting and easier to pay attention to than I thought. I also learned a lot of tricks which is what I was hoping for! The instructor was really awesome! He made something that could be boring much more fun! I would recommend AcademyX just because the instructor was so great!
