4.0 out of 5 starsBasic book, easy understanding11 Dec. 2009
By Diogo M. Paes - Published on Amazon.com
The book is very good for engineers. Knowing better EXCEL can facilitate a lot the daily tasks we have to do.
The book is very easy to understand, with many examples that can be followed in a computer without problems.
I was very interested in the Visual Basic section, which is a little poor in my opinion. But it gives the basics and can be useful for someone that wants to begin coding in VBA. For people that already know a little and want to improve in VBA, it is not a good option.

3.0 out of 5 starserror chapter 157 April 2010
By Jim M. Papadopoulos - Published on Amazon.com
Looking for a textbook to help my engineering students learn useful excel tools, I paid special attention to Chapter 15, which starts with a linkage example.
The so-called Freudenstein equation is given wrongly there, missing one of the cosine dependencies that make the linkage loop equation a little messy. Such an error really dashes the credibility of the entire book, although I suppose the author probably gets the Excel commands all right.

1.0 out of 5 starsDo not buy14 May 2011
By Eddie - Published on Amazon.com
This book is riddled with errors. I downloaded errata sheets from the publisher/author website. But the book has lot more errors and typos in formulas, functions, charts etc than what's mentioned in the errata sheets. Explanations are incomplete and it is overall hard to follow. It is better to wait until there is a newer revised edition. I traded it in for a different excel book. Better choices appear to be: Engineering with Excel (3rd Edition) Numerical Methods with VBA Programming

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought the Kindle copy of this book for convenience as I use it to teach VBA programming to engineering freshmen and it's nice to be able to show parts of the book with the video projector when lecturing. The Kindle version does NOT match the print edition. There are numerous differences and omissions making the Kindle edition basically of no use. Stay away from it.
