## Notes

Public courses on Microsoft Excel and Access are taught in Office 2013. If you are using Office 2010 – the functions and features you will learn are similar to 2013 and can be applied in the 2010 environment. If you would like group training on any MS Office 2010 programs, please contact Pam Nellen at nellenp@uwm.edu or 414-227-3208.

This course is very useful for the type of data analysis I do on a daily basis. I learned many new tips to help me create, sort, slice and dice data to create useful reports, which will help make better business decisions.

Greg is a great instructor! The program was well taught and easy to follow. The workbook will prove to be a valuable resource going forward to reinforce the lessons from class.
