Microsoft Excel Starter Pack (0001)

MS Excel is an electronic spreadsheet program that is used for storing, organizing, and manipulating data.
Spreadsheets present tables of values arranged in rows and columns that can be manipulated mathematically using both basic and complex arithmetic operations and functions.

Remember: when in Excel, if you are doing it manually then you are doing it wrong. Excel provides formulas for pretty much everything.

Here are some videos to help you understand what it is and how to start using it.
