4.0 out of 5 stars Microsoft Excel 2007 13 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a decent book if you want to improve your Excel skills. I would class myself as an advanced user and with the help of the CD you can pick up some good new tips. Be warned this is not for beginners, but that is great for regular Excel users, as they don't want to be bored with all that basic stuff. I think the book gets to the point quickly, which is what you want if your busy. Overall I would say this book is better than most of the other likeminded books on the market, as it is focused, which lets be honest is what you want. Who wants to learn about some amazing formula that you never use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Office Excel book 21 Feb 2012
The quality of the book is great!
The examples used are awesome!
General opinion the book is for geeks;))
Lol, well, i have to say, I have enjoyed every part of this book, though it covers almost any aspect of what you might be needing not only in everyday use, but also every aspect of the business life, though the title of the book speaks for itself;)
nicely done

Don't think, just buy.

This book is excellent and should be part of any serious data analysts book shelf.

What I like the most is that it gives excellent rel world examples and also tests what you've learnt. If you put in the effort you can get alot of this book. You probably wont be able to learn everything but what you do need to learn from it very comprehensive and clear
