Crash Course In Microsoft Excel

So my Computer & Management class we are learning to use Excel and Access programs. Well, I am plus maybe 3 or 4 other people in the class and everyone else has some knowledge about it. I've only worked in Excel and that was using it to work one problem in my statistics class last fall semester. I have a lot of catching up to do to understand how to use it, but at least I have this weekend and a couple of more days before the next classes to get the basic grasp of it. I did 1 of the first 3 chapters that we are going over at the moment and so far so good. There is going to be a lot of practice that I have to do each night to make sure I understand it. Our first test is already fast approaching, June 8, but the instructor has said that he will let us know as we going along each chapter, what will be on the test which is good. Plus we are able to use our books, notes, problems we worked on at home, etc to help us with it.

We also are able to do extra credit which is worth 5 points added to your final grade, which is cool. I'm going to try to do it since the instructor says you have to do it all or nothing, so I'm going to do it all as best as I can. Hopefully me being more focused and work harder this semester will kind of bring my GPA up some. I know it won't be a lot, but I'm determined not to go backwards.
