From zero knowledge of excel to an absolute excel expert
Wall Street oasis took me from zero knowledge of excel to an absolute excel expert,quick with keyboard hotkeys.
I've been hailed by my boss and colleagues at work, trident insurance co.ltd finance department,I used the knowledge also in PowerPoint and word ,these hotkeys apply almost in ppt,word and excel. I've been so efficient yet I'm still in campus.
A local leather turning firm also gave me a role in finance and accounting and it's been a lovely experience, I've actually recoup the money I paid wall street oasis for the course and in fact I got a massive discount, Patrick didn't sell it to me\$497 dollars if I remember. The PowerPoint course could improved though,it only gives tricks but does not teach one how to actually create a full presentation or pitchbook. I'm sorry that I have to write my review away from home, I saw the email from Patrick and had planned to do this at home unfortunately my schedule with university,exams have Started and work reasons left me with no time,so seeing the second email I had to pull over and give at least something back by the roadside. If one is keen on a career in finance WSO is the place, it's worth it and the discussion section will broaden your commercial awareness. Thank you WSO.

Great course - not just for modeling
A great course - not just for modeling. You'll pick up the mechanics of Excel, not to mention a robust knowledge of shorts so you never have to touch the mouse ever again. Then you'll learn about a cornucopia of formulas used in finance and how they interact with each other to arrive at extremely useful results.

Finally you'll get to the modeling, and you'll cover that in reasonable depth to understand what you're doing.

The course is well laid out with exams at the end of every module. The files you keep from this are a great future reference if you ever forget how exactly to do something. One last thing that I found excellent: the instructor is not just an Excel instructor, but also clearly works in finance. This shows up in additional tips throughout the course on best practices and how best to present your models.

Worth every penny.
Worth every penny. I would have honestly paid more for the knowledge I gained from this course. It has saved me so much time and made me the go-to guy at work for anything excel. This is a no-brainer for anyone getting into financial services. But honestly is excellent for anyone who just wants to be an excel guru! Wall street oasis is incredible and produces nothing but excellent material to learn from.

Builds nicely from the simple to the complex!
I really enjoyed the structure of the course and all the golden nuggets in it - it builds nicely and gradually from the simple to the complex! The quizzes after each module are great to practice what was learnt. And the cheeky monkey that pops in and out every now and then makes the course more fun;)

Boosted my efficiency
The course is pretty comprehensive and probably covered 95% of what I did with Excel during my internship. The keyboard shortcuts in particular boosted my efficiency and I even taught a few to some of my senior colleagues! Note that VBA/macros aren't covered. The timed tests sprinkled in between really helped cement the concepts I learned and be able to apply them immediately. I plan on reviewing the material from time to time to aid in better retention and especially before interviews. The short format of the videos made it easier to stay focused so I would say it's a worthwhile investment of time and money.

I really enjoyed this course
I really enjoyed this course, the fact that it has videos which guided you through all of the tasks after you have attempted them yourself is really helpful. I thought the speed of the course material was adequate, I knew most of the early lessons but quickly found myself re-learning excel 'best practises' or new techniques which I did not know about.
Albert
Great in terms of practical application
Great in terms of practical application in Excel. Would have liked more content on the three statements itself.
It's the best bang for your buck. Compared to other equally popular courses on the street, this one is really good and up to date with Excel versions.
Erick Quinteros
100% worth it
100% worth it as an intro to excel best practices; recommend pairing with the advanced WSO trainings on financial statement modeling, valuation, and LBOs.

I had very moderate experience with excel when I was in University. This course has been extremely helpful in teaching me excel in an applicable way so that I can excel at my role as an analyst.

I used to consider myself to be pretty good at Excel
Working for 5 years in finance and strategy, I used to consider myself to be pretty good at Excel. But what Zach the instructor and the WSO team (including the monkey) have put together makes me look like an amateur. My target since completing this course is to get a stage where I can model without using the mouse (not yet there but getting there). I love the fact that they have put together excel sheets on which you can practice the shortcuts you learn. Started out at 3-4 mins on my first and ended taking less than 40 secs.
I've done Excel courses before like this but with no practice, so only little of what I learned actually stuck. Practice makes perfect so I'm gonna head back to that :D
