Hi, My name is Chandeep, I’ll be your Instructor. 

I am assuming that you already know me through my blog, but if you are new around here, here are a few things about me.

I stay in Dubai, UAE and used to work as a Financial Analyst for an Investment Bank in Mumbai (India). Back in December 2013 I quit my full time job to start Goodly.

Being an Analyst, I became really good with Excel and I now teach Excel and PowerBI around the world through Online Courses, Blog, YouTube and LIVE Corporate Training Programs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any Pre-Requisites for this course?
The course is a step above the beginner / intermediate level. You need to have basic to intermediate level of Excel Skills. To be more specific you should be comfortable to work with
  • Simple Formulas (like IF, Vlookup, Index Match, SumIf, CountIf etc..)
  • Pivot Tables
  • Charts (creating, editing and formatting)
  • Some bit of conditional formatting
If you are not confident about Excel and want to learn Excel in depth along with Dashboards, then I strongly urge you to enroll in my Excel course (Master Excel Step by Step). You can choose the combo option in the pricing plan.
Master Excel Step by Step is a comprehensive course on Excel and covers all important concepts in Excel (Basic to Advanced).
Do I require the knowledge of VBA Coding to understand the course material ?

No you don’t need to know VBA for doing this course. Although some lessons of the course involve VBA but I have made sure that they are simple to understand and quickly replicable in your own Dashboards.

What version of Excel is used?

I have used a mix of Excel 2013 & 2016 in this course. But even if you have older versions of Excel that should not be a problem because most concepts are universal in excel.

Where ever there is anomaly in any feature that is exclusively available in Excel 2013/16, I have pointed it out explicitly.
