Microsoft Excel: Data Analysis and Visualization

Microsoft Excel is used by almost every professional in whatever job he is doing. Analysts use it to crunch numbers. HR staff use it to keep lists and stay organized. Sales specialists use it to track their performance and show their work. It is SO versatile and has SO many functionalities that you might not even know existed. Did you know you could use it as an automated meeting minutes record keeper? Did you know you could use it as an interface to access the files on your computer? Did you know that, if you really know how to use it, you should never reach out for your calculator again?
