Day 3 - Organizing my Plan of Action

Today (Thursday - April 26, 2012)  Professor TAB put together a plan of action as he continues on his pursuit to acquire the MOS Certification for Microsoft Excel 2010. 

He identified the following key areas of subject matter to review, study and implement so that the new features (and those that he doesn't use that often) become part of his everyday business life.  Professor TAB will apply such features as Advanced Tables, Lookup Functions, Slicers, SmartArt Graphics and many more toward enhancing and updating the Financial Section of the TAB Training & Consulting, LLC business plan.

The six main areas that he will be focusing on for Friday (April 27, 2012 - Day 3) consist of the following:
  1. Calculating Data with Advanced Formulas
  2. Organizing Worksheet and Table Data
  3. Presenting Data Using Charts
  4. Analyzing Data Using PivoTables, Slicers and PivotCharts
  5. Inserting Graphic Objects
  6. Customizing and Enhancing the Excel Environment

Check our the next post - Day #4 (April 28, 2012) which leaves just two days to see how he is doing with the areas of concentration listed above.
