More PC focused than Mac. Spent a ton of time trying to search for the corresponding shortcuts and keys. Maybe create a Excel for Mac class?

I thought the class was great and was incredibly impressed by the teacher. Class offers tools to empower spreadsheets and some tips and tricks for efficiency.

Unfortunately, the class was PC - based and I have a Mac....so a lot of what was covered did not help me at all. The instructor did what he could to let us know what was different for Mac users, but obviously with limited time and with him being knowledgeable in PC, it wasn't much.
If I would have known that the Teacher only know how to teach excel for PC I would have brought my HP Laptop. This class was a waste of my money and time, been in class 2 hours now and everyone but 1 other person have mac book, the teacher don't know how to teach us using mac book, he have to keep looking up cheat short cuts to teach us. I could have use google if I wanted to learn this way. in the class description it state you can be teach using a mac book also.
Spent time explainning difference between excel on PC and Mac... The class is 10000% designed for pc. At the end of the class younwill NOT be abble to use excel
Many students did not meet the prerequisites of the class (basic computer skills and basic knowledge of Excel). We only covered approximately half of the material because the instructor was busy answering questions about how to connect to the internet, use a mouse, or how to copy and paste. In the future, I would suggest highlighting the prerequisites so that students that do meet the minimum are not wasting their money.

You should specify in the description if it is a class for pc or mac. We wasted so much time trying to clarify what the short cuts were for mac.
Michaels teaching style was very good and j would like to see more classes offered by him!
