What if you could perch on the shoulder of an expert on spreadsheet validation ... look on in real time as he highlights potential pitfalls and defines innovative validation approaches ... ask why he does this instead of that ... and get feedback?

What if you could discover the tips and tricks that will help you streamline your spreadsheet validation process for quick-and-final FDA approval?

Well, you can.
