Ever wanted to see what all the fuss about INDEX-MATCH is?

The best way to learn is to build stuff. You can read all the books in the world, but until you practice something for real yourself (and repeat, and repeat...) you won't get where you want to go.

Yes!

I wanted to give back to the community and say a big thank to all those who have purchased one of my premium courses.

I get a lot of emails and questions about the more advanced formulas in Google Sheets, so I saw a clear need for some structured training on this topic. So here it is. ;)

I've poured a lot of sweat and tears into this course, so if you enjoy it and get some value from these lessons, you can "pay me" by sharing this with a friend or colleague who you think might benefit.

This course is intended for intermediate level users of Google Sheets, who want to become more comfortable with advanced formulas and unlock the full potential of their data.

You should be comfortable with basic formulas before taking this course, up to about the level of the VLOOKUP (although I do a very quick recap of that in lesson 1!).
