  1. Terry老师的课程有许多数据模型建立的实战经验,课程内容实用,结构合理,解答问题很有耐心,每次上课都收获颇多,学过的技能马上就用在了工作中。

  2. The course is great, it has open up the limitations to analysis data in different angle simultaneously and make analysis more interesting.

    人在忙碌的时候,就只能看着脚下的路,没空去想目标和意义。我为什么要建这个表格,能不能换个思路,都没时间想,照做就可以了。

    Terry老师的建模培训课,非常有价值,是真正意义上的普渡会计从业人员。

    当然,这种意义也是慢慢生长,先是对一小撮人有意义,再可能是更多的人。总之,知道别人不知道的,能做别人不能做的,就让大家在学习和追赶中,慢慢升级迭代,build block越做越好。

    最后,愿你早上醒来,会像Terry老师一样,自信满满打开电脑,应对各种建模。

  5. Learn a lot of powerful Excel Skill – Power Pivot, will definitely help in future work. Love new technique, make accounting life much interesting and easier.
