Very great course for learning the basics of VBA programming in excel. The video lectures were easy to follow and very clear. The assessments were fair and relevant to the topics discussed each week. I would definitely take another online course conducted by this instructor!

After attending 2 non-virtual courses, I really learnt how to code thanks to this one. Can't recommend enough. And it's been recently turned into a Self Paced course.

Quite easy to understand this language. It took me 1 week with 2-3 hours per day. Not really complete information about VBA. Personally for me I also needed a work with files(read/write/etc.). But it gave me enough knowledge to find out everything else by myself.

This course is amazing. IT really sets an excellent background for understanding VBA. I literally went from knowing no VBA, doing this course, really paying attention to writing my first financial model in VBA within a span of 4 weeks. I would recommend it to anyone.

Class Interval Courses are really very helpful to understand the basic of any programming, I Really cleared all the basic with good exmples, which can be practically done by self. In the bussy life the learning is stopped, but with the support of Class Interval you can learn new tech , new concepts and utillized time. The class tutorials are the simplest and fast. Its the Best Online Class Ever. Thanks

The material is clearly explained and presented in a logical manner. Be careful when taking the tests! Dr. Nissenson isn't afraid to throw out trick answers or have his students inspect needlessly complex code for better understanding of what bad code looks like.

The video tutorials were easy to follow and the homework tasks were helpful in understanding Excel VBA better. No questions are left unanswered thanks to the discussion boards and supplemental materials provided.
