I've never worked with SQL. The instructor did a great job in giving me a foundation to launch from.

I very much enjoyed my Excel 3 class. I learned a lot, and will recommend this to other members of my company as I thought it was very informative and a much better use of time and money than many live in-person Microsoft Suite classes that I have attended.
