Learn Excel 2013 Essential Skills with The Smart Method

Excel 2013 Essential Skills is available as a book, e-Book and video course.

Excel 2013 was very different from the modern (2016 and later) versions of Excel. Updates to the original version did not substantially change any features.  Microsoft called this a fixed lifecycle. With the release of Excel 2016 Microsoft introduced the modern lifecycle. This new way of working means that Excel is constantly evolving with semi-annual major updates (in the same way as Windows 10).

The older fixed lifecycle Excel versions (Excel 2007, 2010 and 2013) enabled us to produce narrated video courses that were a real alternative to learning from a book. The video product  covered all of the material contained in the Excel 2010 Essential Skills printed book. Buyers could choose to purchase either a book or a video version of each course.

Video material for the new modern lifecycle (Excel 2016) versions.

With a new Excel 2016 version every six months there is insufficient time to create a stand-alone Excel 2016 video course (as we did for Excel 2013). Instead we update our Excel 2016 books and e-books for each new release. We also record free Excel 2016 video walkthroughs that are not useful by themselves but can help learners who have difficulty completing an Excel 2016 book lesson.
