I have a second interview this Monday for an analyst position.
I was told in the first interview there "might" be an excel test.
Can any of you advise the best way to prep?
I've done a google search and found a ton of stuff...so much it actually is overwhelming.
I'm not sure where to begin, I've seen some classes offered online for like $45, don't know if that's a rip off.

I use excel daily, but for household functions like tracking my workouts and budget.
I do simply addition, subtraction stuff...I don't know how complex this will get.
Any tips or advice much appreciated.
Thanks.

I would suggest you pay a visit to the free how to videos here: http://how-to.test4u.eu/en#wp004_11
the material is highly rated.
I have used test4u in order to get extra skills and pass the 77-427 exam and it helped me because the environment was pretty much the same and the questions where I practiced were almost identical to the ones at the exams.

Try YouTube excel tutorials. Have you ever worked in Excel before? I doubt they will test much more than basic things like pivot tables, etc.

I use it daily for personal use, which is basic math.
I guess lookup and pivot tables show do.

We use an excel test for accounting positions. Amazing what some people can do with that tool.

There is plenty of good resources out there, one thing you may want to do if you can is find out which version they're testing on.
