I've found to be very impressive how Mark managed to condense a lot of information in only four modules. I had some background in VBA that I do for work but there were some missing knowledge especially regarding classes and data types. The course ended up being be VERY useful for many day-to-day basic routines at work, and saved me a lot of time. My rating is 5/5 on ScriptUni. I've also saved the extra-class work and planning on tackling ASAP.Jose B., Broker at Brokerage Services

In this course Mark provided knowledge from useful Excel shortcuts to complex VBA coding structures and how to interact with SQL. In completing the assignments, you need to build everything from scratches and learn how to code in VBA with the help of sample codes from the lecture together with resources from the internet. When I was doing some projects with my classmates, they were surprised by how comfortable I could be in manipulating things in spreadsheets.
