    "I had used Excel in college helping a university professor with her research. But after not having used it in 2 decades I had forgotten the basics. I wanted to learn how to make spreadsheets at home to keep track of expenses and other things. I opened Excel on my own thinking i could just suddenly have everything I used to know come back. I was wrong. It was not easy figuring it out for myself. Using video tutorials on YouTube was a great way to learn how to use Excel again. I was able to learn on my own time, with no need to actually go out of the house and pay for a course. Plus, there are so many channels to choose from, it makes finding a great tutorial easy. I totally think that these videos are priceless and saved me hours of agonizing over my computer."

    "I've been looking for the best Excel tutorials since I'm learning Excel and taking a class on it at school. I found Excel Easy and I honestly do not like it very much. The sections are not broken up properly and nothing is organized well at all on the website. It's hard to find the information I want to look up. It hurts my eyes to read the pages, too. You are much better off watching videos on YouTube, since that's more visual. There's just too much text in the tutorials and not enough examples. I don't recommend this."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Excel was originally called Multiplan? The spreadsheet program by Microsoft was released for Macintosh computers and was successful against VisiCalc, which was the first ever spreadsheet program. However, even though over a million copies of Multiplan was sold, it lost against another competitor, Lotus 1-2-3. Lotus 1-2-3- was a program by IBM, and it was the main trigger for IBM’s success in the 1980s. In 1985, Microsoft rose up to the challenge and upgraded and rebranded Multiplan into Excel, because it “excelled” over Lotus 1-2-3. Software development for Excel 1.0 was done by a team of only four people, including the lead developer Douglas Klunder.

Along with Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel has been part and parcel of Microsoft Office since the first version of the suite was released in 1990. By 1996, Excel had 30 million users. At present, Excel has 750 million active users worldwide, making it the most used Microsoft application after Word and PowerPoint. Microsoft Excel is used the most by business enterprises, as it is this sector that needs Excel’s number crunching capabilities the most. The latest version of Excel, Excel 16.0, has over 400 executable commands and functions in 11 categories. This, and the fact that Excel is now available for mobile platforms, is a big advantage over its other competitors such as Numbers by Apple and Google Sheets.
