"Now I know how to create Pivot Tables.

I’ve been making “Pivot Tables” wrong for years, entering all of the raw data myself. I am now able to make a Pivot Table that will update as needed.

I will definitely be on the lookout for additional courses from Ben."

- Rachelle L.

"My pivot table knowledge was pretty basic before this course and I am confident to say that I am now going to be able to implement them into my data analysis workflow.

This course also took my efficiency to the next level which is exactly what I needed as more of my time and analysis is starting to take place in sheets. I can't recommend this enough."

- John R.

"I am an academic librarian who has worked for years with massive raw data sets and pivot tables, and even gives related presentations at our regional conferences, and yet I learned from Ben's course several very useful tips and techniques that I didn't already know about and that will save me a lot of work."
