The material was more advanced than I was. I picked up some pointers and learned what I don't know. I learned I need to take some more basic classes.

AS

Very smooth and easy to use!

VN

Instructor was extremely succinct and very clear. Used relevant examples and moved at a good pace, if you were an experience user. If you are a beginner, it might be tough to keep up, but the instructor was very responsive to questions during the webinar which more than made up for it.

RB

The instructor is fantastic! 5*

DC

The course was very good. Some advanced topics were discussed, like Power Query, and the instruction was a bit rushed, so I didn't grasp everything. It would be helpful if the more complex topics were explained more slowly; or take a more hands-on approach by providing samples for audience to follow along with instructor.

KW

Thanks!

I learned a lot of new functions

I thought this was one of the better presentation of excel training that I have taken.

LC

Very good presentation.

CH

Very Good

SL

This was a great webinar and I have at least take-aways that will cut my time down on spreadsheets in a big way. Like the instructor says, I am one of those CPAs who knows only what I need to know about excel and haven't kept up with the features. This was a great update and I'll be looking for some more! Thanks so much!

DL

Great Instructor and class!!

Excellent course

RD

the course was informative and I be using many of the methods discussed and demonstrated

JH

Excellent instructor

RD

very good course

QC

The courses are very useful.

JLS

Overall it was very informative and added to my knowledge.

CB

The advanced analytics step was over my head and difficult comprehend.

MV

Overall was a good session, but I would like to continue to dive deeper into excel.

GR

Overall, the course was good and very informative.

KW

i wouldn't have any complaints if the presenter would have allocated his time better. instead he rushed with 5 minutes remaining and then still kept us there several minutes late when i had another meeting to attend right after this. its very frustrating that i'm at the presenters mercy to earn my CPE credits, even if that means missing important meetings simply bc the presenter can't wrap it up timely. otherwise, it was an informative webinar.

KM

The information was presented well and not at all overwhelming. The instructor was very knowledgeable and presented in a manner easy to understand.

JS

The information was good but I am retired now and basically do personal income taxes and a few business taxes. In the business taxes I do use basic excel functions to do the accounting for the companies that I handle.

CC

Helpful webinar

PR

Please stop using "Ladies and Gentlemen" to introduce your classes. This is not inclusive language.

NW

Good webinar!

JE

I was not able to complete the sixth and seventh polling question because my computer froze when David said to go to the sixth polling question. Did other attendees have this problem? This happened at approximately 2:50 to 2:55, so I had attended almost the entire session.

JS

Knowledgeable instructor

CG

N/A

ZR

Good session, went a bit faster than my learning speed otherwise value added materials shared!

MF

While the excel course was very informational, the instructor went through the various options very quickly. There were times when he lost me and moved on to the next item. It would have been beneficial if he would have spend a little more time on several items.

DR

This course was for people with an advanced knowledge of Excel. It also required a certain version of Excel to be available on one's system. This should be stated in the registration info.

MUA

NA

NF

I enjoy online webinars, this is my preferred method of completing PD hours

JN

Great demos with a few suprises

GW

There was some thunder-like sounds coming across the microphone. Possibly too close to the mic. There were also gaps in sound where the system went silent and picked up a word or two later.

JP

Picked up a few new excel tricks. Nice

BB

Learned several new EXCEL commands/formulas during this course.

JW

Good for intermediate excel user, not lower level

PS

With technical issues, there seemed to not be enough time to get everything covered....no time for questions after course, but instructor did say we could email questions.

SD

Informative

I'm pretty impressed with the value proposition.

KS

good

TD

Great presentation materials

BD

Overall solid webinar

MB

The webinar was great as always from David. I did pick up quite a few tips to make the data entry and manipulation easier. I really wish I had MS 365. Excel 2016 didn't have all the bells and whistles David was using. I can't wait to try the PDF to excel conversion thing once I get 365!

JB

good excel tips

KK

purchased the package

BO

Excellent

AG

Great information on excel functions.

PA

He is a great presenter and i really enjoy his sessions. Always learn something new.

The myCPE website offers a wonderful selection of categories of CPE courses, both Free and those with a cost. Cost is minimal. Would definitely recommend this site.

knowledgeable instructor

MS

My classes with my-CPE have been useful and a good solution to my CPE needs.

WT

Distracting. Problems/malfunction with the required questions.

BR

instructor very knowledgeable however went to fast over the material

DW

Overall the content and Instructor was good. I did feel the content was below that of an intermediate excel user but it there were topics that were useful.

AL

Overall the course was alright, perhaps a little bit on the simply side, not sure if I want to return to do the rest of the course given the level of complexity was not much beyond what I already know.

DW

This was a good program overall. However, I would say this was more on the beginner/intermediate side and I wish that had been apparent. That being said, after looking over this website I think I will likely pick some of the more advanced courses in the future.

AC

This class was a little to advanced for me. I don't use excel on a daily basis and maybe needed to take a refresher course before taking this one.

This class was a little to advanced for me. I don't use excel on a daily basis and maybe needed to take a refresher course before taking this one.

I probably was in a class too advanced for my knowledge. The instructor went a little too fast for me. I did learn a few things.

JR

Not good

LJ

Horrible webinar, the presenter MUST be conciencious.
