"Excel is too powerful a tool to be left to accountants. It is so broadly available that all science and engineering students and professionals should be aware of its potential for applications in their fields...A Guide to Microsoft Excel for Scientists and Engineers' is a valuable demonstration of how scientists, engineers and students can apply Excel to problems in their own specialisation. Its user-friendly style, including practical examples and screen captures, is easy to read and understand." (of the 2nd edition) Materials World, January 2002 'This second edition...upholds the positive properties of the first.
