Results of the Excel test

Still starting with Excel? Although you have scored below 6 points, you might still be a good Excel user. Again: This quiz was designed to be hard.
But maybe it’s time to take your Excel knowledge to the next level? My first recommendation: Feel free to sign up for my monthly Excel newsletter.
Or what about an online Excel class? I can recommend this class (which is for new joiners of Udemy usually between 10 and 20$ – I don’t receive anything for promoting it here, just mentioning), but there are many others available. Just search the internet.
Your result is between 6 and 9 Points
You have a solid Excel knowledge and know many things. And admittedly, some questions were quite tricky. But as said in the introduction: This test is not easy.
Why don’t you continue your path? The easiest thing you could do right now: Sign up for my free, monthly Excel newsletter.
Build on your good knowledge and even improve your (very minor) blind spots. Also for you, maybe an additional online class might help?
