Frequently Asked Questions

What's the best way to learn Microsoft Excel?

The best learning resource is the one that you will stick with. For some students, that means a resource that's fun and engaging like a mobile or PC game. For others it's a resource that lets them learn on their own time, like a mobile app or YouTube channel. For other students, it's a resource that emphasizes reinforcement, such as a workbook or set of printable worksheets. The best way to figure out what is right for you is to look at a wide range of resources, keeping your selection criteria in mind. Search our database of 11 resources for learning Microsoft Excel.

What should I consider when choosing a learning resource for Microsoft Excel?

Think about what is going to help you continue with the resource and actually complete it. Primary considerations should be:

  • Time commitment - how much time can you spend with this resource per day/week?
  • Portability - will you be studying at home or in other places, such as on the bus or after school?
  • Reinforcement learning - does the resource offer reinforcement? Think about whether you'll want exercises or printable worksheets to help you practice what you learned.
  • Price - does the resource require a monthly subscription? This may be fine for topics you can learn in a month or two, but it may be prohibitively expensive otherwise.
