Excel challenges allow you to test your Excel skills by solving real-world business problems
Our Excel challenges are graded into three categories: Basic, Essential and Expert. The skills needed to complete each challenge are taught in the matching Excel tutorial book/e-book. For example, a challenge that is graded Essential will only require the skills that are taught in: Learn Microsoft Excel Essential Skills with The Smart Method.
If you have acquired your Excel skills by another route, our Excel challenges will reassure you that you have excellent Excel skills.

Is your book available in French. We use your book at Illiniis State University (Dr. William Crampton) and we have an international ptogram that has participants from French speaking countries. I would be in the market for about twenty books per year.
We have looked into the possibility of a French, German (and possibly Spanish) translation but the process is a lot more involved than you might think. Most screen grabs would have to be re-made for the foreign version and all of the text translated. This would take at least three months per book. The process would then have to be repeated every six months for each new Excel 365 semi-annual release. My judgement is that it is unlikely that the production costs would be recovered. For this reason we have no plans to publish translated books for other languages at present.
I’d love to see more challenges added as a useful way of testing my skills periodically and to help keep the knowledge fresh if I don’t need to use Excel on a regular basis for a while.
