Excel School - Online Excel Training ProgramPS: Today is the last day for joining excel school. So bear the promotional messages. Skip this post if you are already sold or not going to buy.

I gave free excel school passes to few of the people I respect and learn from. You see, I have worked mostly alone on Excel School and while the first batch students were very happy with what they got in the school, I wanted to be doubly sure that Excel School is an excellent value for money and nothing short of an awesome program. So I gave free passes to people I truly admire, to know what they would think.

Here is what Daniel Ferry, who writes Excel Hero blog said,

The motto of Chandoo’s blog is Become Awesome in Excel. Excel School will definitely help get you there. In fact, if you are interested in being an Excel Hero, I would go so far as to say that the information in Chandoo’s Excel School is a prerequisite.

Working your way through this pertinent material will leave you with a solid, well-rounded Excel foundation.

Here is what Debra Dalgleish, an Excel MVP and blogger said,

If you’re an absolute beginner, you’re not quite ready for Excel School.
If you’re John Walkenbach (or could write your own Excel Bible), you’ve probably mastered most of the content already.

If you’re somewhere in the middle, there’s lots to learn in Excel School, including Advanced Charting, Conditional Formatting, Advanced Formulas, Macros and Pivot Tables.

Here is what Excel Addict, Francis Hayes said,

I have viewed several of the Excel School videos and have found that Purna covers the topics in detail and his lessons very clear and easy to understand.

Is Excel School for you?

I don’t know…but if you are someone who is willing to invest a little money for the much greater return of increased productivity (and all the benefits that come from it), I think it’s worth checking out.

I am very happy to hear what these highly knowledgeable people think of Excel School. Thank you.

Obligatory sales pitch:

I have decided to add 12 more hours to excel school registration deadline. So you should be able to join until 12 noon on 22nd June, Pacific Day Time (find out what time it is now).

    Hi, I need to join that, and would be able to do that once I reach home. Do you think, you could hold on the closure until then....please? Thanks a ton and god bless you.

    here's what Albert Einstien said about Excel School:
    "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. Chandoo has done just that with Excel School. I haven't seen such genious since Rutherford split the atom. And you can quote me on that".

    🙂

  3. Chandoo says:

    @Jeff... did I appear too marketingy with this post?

  4. Jeff Weir says:

    No, I don't think so at all. I was just having some fun, not critisising you, hence the 🙂 face.
    I thought it would make you laugh...didn't want to startle you. Regardless, it's your post , so don't worry about what some random dude might or might not think about your appearence 😉

  5. Chandoo says:

    @Jeff... you are not a random dude 😀 You care a lot about this community and what we have here. So I respect your opinion much more than that of a random dude's.

    I am curious to know whether my post looked like hard sell.. that is all. While I am very proud of what we have here as well as in Excel School, at no point I want to loose readers or appear like a snake oil salesman. That is why I asked.. 😀

  6. Christian says:

    Chandoo,

    I think all members of this forum fully appreciate you genuine "awesomeness".

    We also realise the balancing act you perform in order to fund your enterprise, in return giving so much back to us.

    keep up all your great work.

    Christian.

  7. Vipul says:

    Totally agree with Christian

  8. jeff weir says:

    But I like snake oil. More to the point, so does my snake. Keeps her from squeaking.

    Some random web definitions of hard sell:
    *forceful and insistent advertising
    *Aggressive, high-pressure sales techniques
    *A description of a style of salespersonship in which the potential purchaser is placed under extreme pressure and bombarded with information and sales pitches
    * An advertisement or campaign that uses a more direct, forceful, and overt sales message.

    Turns out you've very bad at hard sell, and you're going to have to work a lot, lot harder to meet those definitions!

    You're not shy on making a sales pitch, but that's how you make your living. It would be remiss of you to not ask for custom...that's the job of an entrepreneur. Your pitch has no pressure, and there's genuine reviews from people in the know. You give pages and pages of free (and valuable) content away for every word of any sales pitch you make. And the way you've set up this community is very transparent, by virtue of the comments box like this one under each of your posts. If you don't deliver on that sell, you'll pay.
    Not that my words mean anything. It's your blog. It's your brand.

  9. Chandoo says:

    @Jeff: turns out I suck at hard-sell 😀

    Anyhow.. wait, I shall release my own splitAtoms() soon 😉

    @Chrsitian & Vipul.. Thank you. Just so you know, Jeff is being sarcastic and sincere in his posts.
