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.

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).
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.

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.

What happens if I finish viewing all the lessons?Your VBA Classes membership is valid for 6 months from the date of joining. You are free to repeat any lessons or ask questions if you have finished all of them.
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).
