(PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week released its "Microsoft Excel - Shortcut Guide," a specialized course teaching tips and techniques for maximizing user speed and efficiency in using Microsoft's industry standard spreadsheet software.
By far the world's most popular spreadsheet application, Microsoft Excel has a virtually unlimited capabilities for customizing the way users interact with spreadsheets and spreadsheet data. According to course author Guy Vaccaro, Infinite Skills' Microsoft Excel - Shortcut Guide is the definitive guide to shortcuts and maximizing speed and efficiency with this powerful program.
Vaccaro has more than 15 years' experience with Excel and Office Suite training in classroom, manual writing, and computer-based formats. With a focus on Microsoft Office Suite, Vaccaro is especially accomplished in Excel and its uses in web and database functionality.
Vaccaro starts off with a collection of simple techniques for saving time, explaining number entry, using the fill handle, adding hyperlinks, and a selection of pivot tables and quick creation charts, followed by a set of keyboard shortcuts.
The course then moves on to more complex techniques, looking at interface options such as accessing ribbon features with the keyboard and customizing the ribbon and the quick access toolbar, before looking at how to work more efficiently with workbooks and worksheets.
Additional chapters teach how to organize and manage your data more efficiently, as well as how to use formulas with data, for instance using the flash fill-in action to complete data columns along with other tools to ensure speed and accuracy with your data.
The course closes with a chapter on pivot tables, explaining how to create a chart with a single key, summarize data using a Sparkline, and perform other functions with charts and tables.
"You might think Excel is already a fast program," Vaccaro says. "And you might wonder, 'Can I really get faster.' Yes, you can get faster. How much faster? The answer is, a lot faster."
