Important Facts on Advanced Excel Tests

The advanced level test is aimed for candidates who will manage a large amount of data and use the software at high capacity. It therefore requires a candidate to master the different features of the software. This doesn't mean you won't see any basic or intermediate questions on the advanced level test. They will, however, be the minority. Most of the questions will deal with formulas, macro creation, advanced formatting and document properties. Make sure to review the different topics so you will be as ready as you can.


Test Topics

Advanced level Excel tests usually feature some questions regarding basic Excel topics related to the software’s interface and use. However, the assessment will mainly revolve around higher level topics such as creating and executing Macro commands, PivotTables, advanced Excel functions, utilising Excel’s in-depth software features, and more. These tests can sometimes prove challenging for even the most experienced Excel users, so be sure you are well prepared and acquainted with the different topics and types of questions before taking the test. Our advanced Excel practice pack was created for experienced users who want to focus their training around the relevant topics for their test. Our practice pack covers all advanced test topics, but also features much more.
