Course Details

​This instructor lead, hands-on course continues on from COMP 1362 and or COMP 2010. Students must have prior knowledge and skills at using the basic and intermediate features of MS Excel before starting this Advanced MS Excel course. Participants start at an intermediate level and progress to expert in just 6 lessons while practicing how to create and manage a variety of meaningful spreadsheets. COMP 2362 focuses on the best practices, time saving techniques and how to use MS Excel to create to analyze, communicate and manage information. Lectures, lab exercises in class and assignments outside of class are used for an applied learning experience. Advanced topics include: consolidating data in multiple worksheets templates, dealing with error messages, solver and basic macros. Students who have completed COMP 2010 should review the entire COMP 1362 syllabus prior to starting. They are expected to already know sub-totalling and pivot tables. There will be a review. Participants progress from intermediate to expert in just 6 weeks. Only those students who have completed COMP 2010 and who have self studied all of the topics in COMP 1362 should register for this advanced level course. This course is required in the Applied Data Analytics Certificate (ADAC) and is elective in the Applied Computer Information Systems (ACIS) Associate Certificate from BCIT Computing. By the end of this course, successful participants will be expert end users of MS Excel.
