Now that you know the basics, you can try using Excel as your calculator in a practice session.
In this practice session, you'll work with the same household budget you've seen in this lesson, to do the same tasks you've seen in the lesson. You'll also try something new by totaling all the values in a row rather than in a column.
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).
Note You need to have Excel 2003 installed on your computer.
- If the practice instructions aren't visible, or if they disappear when you click in Excel, click the Excel Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
- If the practice instructions cover up Excel, click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
Before you begin
Make sure to close Excel if it is already running.
