|This method of prefered training is different for everyone, some are better in class room exvironments and others prefer to sit alone and learn. |
i perfer the latter, i have attended some Excel training courses and to be honest did not find them overly useful, however i did learn some interesting things. Although i am not an expert in Excel, everything i have learnt (expecially VBA) i have learnt myself.
My approach to anything is, think of a project you want to complete and start to work on it, use the internet as a resource as there are many tutorials and examples you can learn from.
Once you completed on project you can think of more and more complicated ones and eventually integrate what you have learnt into things you do at work.
There are plenty of websites that provide tutorials, just do a Google search for something like 'Free Excel courses online' or 'Free excel tutorials'
my opinion is, if you sit in front of a pc with a tutorial in your hand, you can work through it and learn it.
