It is common for financial modelers to stop learning Excel formulas after they have learned the minimum number of formulas that can do the work. This may result in them not knowing the best formula to use for certain situations, leading to time-consuming workarounds. In this case, financial modelers are challenged to match Excel formulas with their definitions to broaden their knowledge of Excel.
