About this course

This course includes:

  • Three self-paced lessons and two practice sessions for hands-on experience. Practices require Excel 2007.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Get a handle on the new look of Excel.
  • Find everyday commands on the Ribbon: Cut, Copy, Paste, Insert Sheet Rows, Insert Sheet Columns, and Sum.
  • Save workbooks in the new Excel file formats.

Here you are, with a new version of Excel. When you open Excel you'll see the familiar worksheets you're accustomed to. And you'll also see things that are new at the top of the window.

The old look of Excel menus and buttons has been replaced with this new Ribbon, with tabs you click to get to commands. The Ribbon was developed to make Excel simpler to use, and to help you quickly find and work with the commands you need.

How do you use the Ribbon? Take this course to find out. See what's changed, and why the changes help you make better Excel worksheets, faster.
