About Course

This course gives you a deep, 100% comprehensive understanding of Excel’s latest data visualization tools and techniques. I’ll show you whenwhy, and how to use each Excel chart type, introduce key data visualization best practices, and guide you through interactive, hands-on demos and Excel exercises every step of the way.

 

We’ll kick things off by exploring each of the 20+ charts & graphs introduced in Excel 2016, including:
