  • Not worth it.
    I am an accountant. I was extremely disappointed in this book. Not well structured at all. It doesnt seem to know if it wants to be a reference book, a book for beginners or a book for those that have Excel knowledge and want to figure out the different features.
    In the end the book is a help to no one....more info

  • Excel for the beginner
    My son-in-law owns two gas stations and all of his records are on Excel spread sheets. I wanted to help him so I needed to learn how to operate the Excel sheets. He is running the older computers which have the 2003 version on them. I had to get a book about the 2003 version. I did buy this book and I read it from cover to cover. I was surprised at how much Excel could do. Once you learn the basics of Excel you can perform most of the functions in simple steps. You can do almost anything on a spread sheet. I kept going back to the book to look up procedures as I got into more complicated procedures. The book has a good table of contents. I even look up some of the words so I could better understand what the program required me to do to get the right results. Later I looked at the Microsoft manual for Excel. The manual has the same information but it seems more technical and it has a minimal table of contents. The Dummies book was more user friendly and it was easier to use as a reference to answer a simple question. ...more info
