Even the best Microsoft Excel for beginners programs will be a waste unless you take the right steps to solidify your knowledge of the skill.  In my experience, I have a developed a simple three step system that has helped me master various Excel skills.  Here, are the steps that have really allowed me to raise my proficiency in Excel.

1.  Learn The Skill.

Like any other learning process, a major step is to simply learn how to do the process.  These means read the steps and if you can, visually see it being performed on your screen.  Then, actually go through the steps yourself so you can develop some mental memory on how this was performed.

2.  Use It In A Project.

After you learn the basic step, you need to incorporate this into your own project.  Ideally, this would be to help an existing project you are working on at work.  However, you can also make a project.  The goal here is to try to find a practical application of your training.  This will help do two things for you.  One, it will help you make sure you understand all the steps learned initially.  Second, it will help you move from theory to practice.  Basically, once you see how this skill can be used to help a project.  You will be far more likely to use it with future projects or even to expand on it.

3.  Expand on the skill learned.

No learning is in a vacuum.  You will find that many initial skills have multiple levels of complexity and application.  When possible, you should take advantage of these areas by trying to push your knowledge further in these skill areas.  The result will be a more complete mastery of the skills where you really own the skills.  In addition, many skills work in tandem with other skills so knowledge of one area will actually help speed up your knowledge of other areas.  Plus, you will find that you have the potential to make even better projects and reports.

By keeping this simple three step system in mind, you should be able to dramatically improve any Microsoft Excel For Beginners program.
