  • Excel 2007+ (Excel 2003 is fine too, but some lessons are suited for Excel 2007)
  • Speakers or ear phones that can give you good quality output
  • Time and zeal to learn

How can I get my company pay for this program?I have prepared a simple document explaining this program. Download [pdf link] and send it your boss. Since $97 (or $397) is not a big amount, your boss should be happy to invest in your skills.

Can I get a payment receipt?Yes. As soon as you make the payment, I will send you a receipt. You can use this to claim reimbursement at work. Let me know if you need any additional documents, I can provide you them. Write to me at chandoo.d @ gmail.com.

I am an absolute newbie, can I join VBA Classes?The answer to this is mixed. If you don’t know much about excel, then you should watch Excel Tutorials for Beginners series. These are 10 free videos and they should help you appreciate various features of Excel. Ideally, you should join Excel School + VBA Classes combination if you do not know much Excel.

What version of Excel do we use in this program?Excel 2007. For all the demos and videos, we use Excel 2007. Whenever we discuss an incompatible feature, We will provide some alternatives for Excel 2003. But this is not always possible. But most examples and ideas can be implemented rightaway in Excel 2003 or above.

Will there be any home work?Yes, we will have home work once every 1-2 weeks. Each home work file comes with a set of questions and an answer sheet. You can use the answer sheet to verify your answers. You can also post a comment to discuss a particular aspect of home-work assignment.

Can I ask questions or doubts?Absolutely. The VBA Classes website is similar to Chandoo.org. You can go thru the lesson and ask questions using comments feature. We will answer them as soon as possible. Not just a faculty member, any one in the class can answer the questions. If we get good questions, we may as well convert the answer to a fresh lesson and post it online. (Pls. note that we cannot answer specific questions related to your work or not related to the topic under discussion).

What happens if I am busy and cannot log-in for a while?No worries, just log-in when you have time and go thru all the pending lessons. You can read / watch them in any order too.

Can I upgrade to some other option after joining?Sure you can. You will find upgrade details & links in VBA Classes website.

Or there any other payments or hidden costs?No, there are no other payments or hidden costs other than what is stated here. You either pay $397 or $297 or $197 or $97 ONETIME. That is all.

Do I have Money Back Guarantee?Yes. Your membership comes with 30 day money-back guarantee. If you dont like the program, please email me asking for refund and I will refund the money and cancel your membership. No questions asked. And the beauty is, we are still cool.

Will we be advanced topics like add-in development, Windows API, Complex Macros?No. This course is aimed at beginner and intermediate level users of Excel and helps them become very good in various areas of Excel. We have deliberately avoided topics like Windows API integration, Add-in development, Complex macros so that we can focus on other important and basic concepts.

VBA Classes is pricey…$97 (or $147 or $247 or $347) is what you will earn in a few days in most countries around the world. Investing this amount to boost your career skills is a very good move. However if you are finding this as an expensive option, I can totally understand to you. Here is what I suggest. Don’t join the program. Instead, just sign up Chandoo.org newsletter or RSS Feeds. Read the blog archives in the last 3 years. There are tons of excellent articles, downloads, demos, tutorials covering practically every topic of Excel. They all are FREE. So go ahead and become awesome.

Can I share the lessons or example files with colleagues or friends?You cannot share lessons or videos with anyone. You cannot also share the bonus content (free ebooks etc.) with anyone. You can, however, share the example files with colleagues purely for work reasons (ie, if you use the example workbook to prepare a chart, you can share that).

Testimonials from Past Students

Fantastic! I looked high and low for courses to physically go to here in Aussieland and there were none. Books are great but nothing like seeing and doing. I really wanted to learn VBA progamming so I could develop applications for our business and do some consulting on the side.

– John Hackwood
     

I never expected to cover so much useful material in 12 weeks. Based on prior experience with Excel and VBA, I realize that even after the course I know only a small percentage of what there is to know. But I have a wealth of knowledge that I can put to immediate use, and that’s all I can ask at this point.

I have seen samples of other courses that were slicker, but I’ve never seen one that was as effective in conveying so much material. In summary, your course was worth every penny I paid for it. Thank you.

– Daryl Fagala
     

In one word: AWESOME. The videos for the most part have been really easy to follow and understand. I think the ‘practical tracks’ were extremely beneficial as they gave us a real world application of the concepts. The homework assignments were priceless – VBA is a language best learnt by doing. I think the pace of it has been quite good as well, and the discussion amongst students are useful.

– Prem Sivakanthan
     

The lessons so far are clear, direct and straight to the point. The lessons are practical, covering topics and areas that are/ may be to handy in work environment. I now have a much better and clearer understanding of VBA. Best investment I ever made!
