Interviewing for Senior Financial Analyst position. There is an “excel test”. What should I brush up/make sure I’m familiar with?

@TM1 why not ask a simple question so that I can be prepared for an interview instead of missing out on a job because there was a tip I could have easily googled and made myself familiar with beforehand

If you aren’t already, I would say at the very least understand pivots, vlookups, hlookups, and sumif formulas

The question should be “if I am worried about an excel test should I be applying for a Senior Financial Analyst position or enrolling in an excel class?"

Thanks SC1. Familiar with all of those. However, this would have more of a modeling portion and wasn’t sure if there were any other things I should be aware of.

I can give you a thorough excel class for $500. Refundable if you aren’t happy. Let me know and I can share my info (should take 4 hours to teach - in person or webex)

I would review some of the basics. Took an excel exam a few years back. I got some of the very easy questions wrong. Like Copy, Paste, Autosum due to heavily using the short cuts - ctrl c / v, alt+=.
