About the Author

Greg Harvey has authored tons of computer books, the most recent being Excel Timesaving Techniques For Dummies and Roxio Easy Media Creator For Dummies, and the most popular being Excel 2003 For Dummies and Excel 2003 All–In–One Desk Reference For Dummies . He started out training business users on how to use IBM personal computers and their attendant computer software in the rough and tumble days of DOS, WordStar, and Lotus 1–2–3 in the mid–80s of the last century. After working for a number of independent training firms, he went on to teach semester–long courses in spreadsheet and database management software at Golden Gate University in San Francisco. His love of teaching has translated into an equal love of writing. For Dummies books are, of course, his all–time favorites to write because they enable him to write to his favorite audience, the beginner. They also enable him to use humor (a key element to success in the training room) and, most delightful of all, to express an opinion or two about the subject matter at hand. Greg received his doctorate degree in Humanities in Philosophy and Religion with a concentration in Asian Studies and Comparative Religion last May. Everyone is glad that Greg was finally able to get out of school before he retired.

Excel Workbook for Dummies 18 Feb 2008
By Onpension - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent step by step walk through of Excel. Good for intermediates who may have skipped some steps along the way and for beginners who want a higher degree of proficiency. Good use of humor to lighten the load and to make the chapters flow.

Excel Workbook for Dummies 10 Jun 2008
By Barbara Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a well written and easy to follow guide to excel. Covers all the basics, but be warned that you have to have the actual program to use the CD. My workplace has the program on the office computers and when I got an office position I wanted to brush up on Excel before I transferred, but since Excel is an expensive program I didn't own it on my home pc. So the CD wasn't much use. Was able to study the text and get some useful pointers and tips on shortcuts tho.

So far I have used this book the most of the 3 Excel books I bought. It is easy to follow the instructions and have the results work. I was able to create column functions with little to no effort with this book.
Just what I needed 29 April 2014
By heather miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just what I needed for a "refresher" since it had been so long since I had used excel on a regular basis. Also great for teaching my daughter a little bit more about what all she could do with excel.
Outdated 13 Jan 2014
By Darlene Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book to help me move through excel with practical applications. I found that Excel 2010 is very different from the version which the author was using. This being said, it actually caused more confusion than clarity. I recommend buying a version which is more up-to-date.
