"The course material is excellent, so good that a person who has just begun using PowerPoint will be able to catch up in no time. As a PE Analyst myself, I found a lot of shortcuts which I didn't know about earlier, and definitely see this course as a good value addition to even intermediate to advanced Powerpoint users. It's an amazing course and I'll highly recommend it to others."
As an experienced finance professional, I believe that the Wall Street Oasis PowerPoint for Finance Course is a great resource for anyone looking to take their PowerPoint skills to the next level. There are so many courses for Excel, but PowerPoint is something I, and I think many others, learned more on the job or in school. This would have helped me immensely a few years ago! If you're a novice or intermediate PowerPoint user, you won't be disappointed with this course.
I found that the WSO PowerPoint for Finance Course to be really helpful with refining my fairly limited skills with the Microsoft application, it showed me many of the technical features of the software that are going to prepare me well for my internship this summer and give me a head start against my peers with this knowledge kept in mind, I am happy I was able to go through this course and come out with a much better understanding of what I thought was simply software for presentations.
This was by far my favorite course I have completed thus far. It didn't involve any unnecessary humor and was straight to the point. As someone who is already proficient in PowerPoint, there was some concern that the course would be unnecessary, however, I certainly learned some of the more advanced topics that I had never tried before, such as "ninja lines".
I really enjoyed this PPT Course. Having not taken a ton of Powerpoint courses in the past, this was a great learning experience. Overall it helped me develop a lot more confidence in my PowerPoint skills, both from a technical and general standpoint! My favorite section was Module 3: Objects and lines, the content and explanations were very helpful and especially coming from someone who doesn't have too many experiences with Powerpoint shortcuts, its slow yet comprehensive walkthrough really elevated my PowerPoint game.
In my own day-to-day, I did find the shortcuts to be quite helpful, especially after setting up my own custom set via the toolbar as covered and would recommend this course to those looking to become more efficient at this necessary tool.
The course definitely exposed me to a lot of features in Powerpoint I had never used before. I have never really used Powerpoint beyond an academic setting so most of the course exposed me to features I had never used before or knew existed. Like with the other courses, I liked that each lesson was concise and moved at a good pace and I really liked the exercises.
