    Im 22 and learnt very basic excel at school

    I have had to use basic spreadsheets for my job for the past two years but in order to progress I need to learn more excel

    What is the best way to learn ? self teaching using books ? courses ?

    Never had to learn a new skill like this before so a bit unsure what is the best route

    Any advice welcomed

    Hi, I was the same, much of what i learnt at school completely vanished from my mind. So when I had to start using excel, sum add and subtract was about as far as i got.
    I ended up picking up excel for dummies from a car boot and that helped me build my excel knowledge, to where I'm more than confident producing excel sheets for others to use in the knowledge I know they will work!
    It also makes sure you know the basics (ive taught a few of our more advanced users a thing or two!) which sometimes get missed trying to learn from trial and error use.

    My tip would be nip down to local carboot/ book store/ charity shop/ online and grab an excel book. The ones with practice tasks I find are the best!
