Hi. You can take the Microsoft Excel for Mac course using your Mac and/or your PC, however, the video tutorials for this course are recorded using Excel for Mac 2016. This just means when you are taking the course on your PC, if you are comparing it to the Excel version on the PC you will notice some interface differences. I hope you find this helpful. Cheers, GoSkills SupportThis was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
