Overview & Curriculum

We offer four levels in our guided tracks, which provide a recommended sequence of tutorials.  Click below on each track name to view the tutorials on our YouTube playlist.

Beginner
Intermediate I
Intermediate II
Advanced

These paths are simply recommended and by no means cover every topic. We want to provide you with a sampling of the major concepts of spreadsheet knowledge.

Each track consists of 10-15 lessons. Each lesson includes a video tutorial. Most also provide you with the referenced spreadsheet, which you can download, follow along, and try on your own. The spreadsheets are currently read-only:  so, to edit and experiment with them, first save a version of the spreadsheet onto your Google drive.

While we recommend these paths, the sequence of the videos is by no means fixed! Many of the topics are “stand-alone” topics, meaning that they can be learned without any prior knowledge. However, there are some topics, particularly in the Intermediate II and Advanced levels where having an understanding the basics will help you better grasp them!

We have created playlists in YouTube, so that you can watch the videos within each track continuously. Click on the YouTube button to view the playlist.
