Excel 2013 - Level 6 - Presenting Data Visually

About the course

Excel is an electronic spreadsheet capable of organising, analysing and presenting data. The basic concept is the same as using a paper spreadsheet with a built-in calculator. The advanced features of Excel allow you to manipulate the data easily and then to graphically present it in a number of attractive formats.

This "Excel 2013 Presenting Data Visually" course will show you how to create charts and add illustrations using Pictures, WordArt, SmartArt, and ClipArt. You will also learn how to add Shapes and Sparklines and use Outlining tools.

Together with our other Excel 2013 courses, this course also supports the background learning for the Microsoft Office Specialist 77-420 exam.
