In this practice session you'll create a chart, and you'll also try some new things.

You'll learn how to see what your chart will look like before finishing the Chart Wizard. You'll also learn how to move the chart around on the worksheet, and how to resize the chart. You'll learn how to delete a chart, and you'll see what the data would look like in some other chart types.
