    Hi,

    Recently sat the Excel Expert exam and just failed. Must admit did not study as much as I should have done (cocky feeling having spent several years using excel!). Found the questions quite difficult compared to the on-line timed and none timed practice exam. Something I would like clarifying is whether I had a Vlookup or Hlookup question. The range that was named was a table across two rows, so I took it that it was a Hlookup reference(?).

    Well I've learnt my lesson and will now dedicate much time to revision for the resit. I know that if you study well then the exam is readily passible.
    I'd like to ask whether anyone has used study material other than the college booklet given out?

    Cheers, :oops:

    Hi SQLearner,

    I would recommend using CBT to study for the exams. It gives you a lot more hands-on practice.

    I passed the exams using books, CBT was not available, and looking at the stuff available these days makes me mad at all the time I had to sit there flicking through pages and reading instructions.
