In the practice you'll see the difference between using TAB and ENTER, and what to do if you type something wrong. You'll enter dates and times. You'll learn something new, about the formula bar, and what to do when text is too long to fit into a cell. You'll also try out AutoFill and AutoComplete.

About the practice session

When you click Practice in Excel, a practice worksheet will download to your computer and open in Excel, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).
