Welcome to the new way to learn Google Sheets. My name is Jake and I learned about spreadsheets (first Excel, then Google Sheets) the same way you've probably tried: I watched hours worth of tutorial videos, read dozens of pages about functions, and messed around in Excel for countless hours trying to practice what I had learned in each tutorial. To make matters worse, I'd usually zone out while watching a video and have to watch it all over again. The worst part was that I'd usually forget whatever functions and shortcuts I'd learned by the next day. I began wondering why there wasn't a better spreadsheet tutorial.
