Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book, I won't call it a textbook as it's much too good for that title, is fantastic. I've looked for years for a book that covers the basics of Excel in an easily referenced guide and at last I've found it.

The note inside says the book is written for novices who have never used the software, and yes, it would serve that group well. My problem has always been that I use Excel infrequently so consistently forget how to do simple things like link sheets and put titles on charts. This book caters for users like me too, as you can dip in to a section very easily and remind yourself how to do a particular task.

Topics are grouped into sections like 'Building formulas' and 'Analysing Excel data' and cover the basics from how to enter data into a cell to more advanced tasks (for me anyway) such as setting data validation rules. Regular users of Excel with a good working knowledge of the program would probably find this a bit basic in places, but would no doubt find it useful as a reference.

The book is consistent in its approach, with each topic, e.g. 'Entering text in a cell' and 'Track workbook changes' covering two page sides only, so you don't wade through over-lengthy explanations and get bogged down. Each topic is well illustrated with screengrabs from Excel and are easy to understand.

This is a fantastic book and would be well worth purchasing for people who are either beginners or infrequent users of Excel.

Having used earlier versions of Excel and now revisiting as a result of my work this book covers the basics of the latest version. In no way is it a complete course, but the information it contains is well laid out and is presented in an easy readable style.

Shortly before receiving this volume i commenced this course
Learn Excel 2007 Essential Skills with The Smart Method: Courseware Tutorial for Self-instruction to Beginner and Intermediate Level

Working my way though that and being able to transfer that knowledge to the new version has been interesting.

If you're looking to learn Excel the 'Essential Skills' book is the way to go, it's packed with far more information and has the advantage that there is an accompanying DVD, albeit at extra cost.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As this book makes clear, it's very much a novices' guide for those who aren't that computer savvy and don't want to have to navigate the wilds of Excel's own help pages or work it out for themselves by trial and error, so it's pretty much redundant for anyone who's had experience with Excel or similar programs. But with more people relying on computer software accounting programs without necessarily being especially computer literate, the simple layout and step-by-step instructions clear and concise, which is ideal if you're just looking to find out which buttons to press to get the right result. Naturally that means a lot of it is pretty basic stuff, but it acts well as a good refresher course if you're not a regular user for the more difficult functions as well. It doesn't get bogged down in extraneous detail and in a couple of places the decision to strictly limit each subject to two pages seems a little too rigorously enforced, and it's also a problem that it's not entirely backward compatible - if you're operating on an older version, you might end up beating your head against the keyboard looking for functions your program doesn't have. But overall, it's a well presented and easy to use guide that's ideal for the novice and the casual user looking to brush up on a few points.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a useful and good value book. It will be most suitable for entry level excel users, but does have value for more experienced excel users who are new to the software changes that were made in office 2007 and now added to in the 2010 version. If you are new to both excel and excel 2010 then this book is an ideal way to start.

The use of highlighted screen shots using full colour is an effective way of describing the functionality. The index is well set out, and generally the book is ordered in a way that makes it easy to find what you want quickly. In truth there isn't much here that a user couldn't find within the help section of excel, but there is no doubt that many of us are self-taught in using software and you don't know what you don't know. For excel in particular reading a book like this can show you easier ways of doing things which you might never have thought of.

Overall then, if you have need of a basic, entry level guide, clearly set out and fully embracing of the `Microsoft ribbon' (which still frustrates me!) then this is a worthwhile investment.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am an experienced Excel user, but with older versions of the application.
I was managing to find my way around the new look and layout of the latest Excel version but found it frustrating and time consuming.
This book is useful because it manages to explain core and key features in simple terms, and has pictures in support which really do help.
This means you can learn very quickly without having to read a lengthy tome.
This enables you to get on with your work.
Be aware that this book does not go into heavy weight nested formulae and the minutiae and fine detail of Excel like some of the Microsoft guides, but deals with all of the popular functions you are more likely to use on a daily basis.
This book is ideal for either a basic user or a frustrated veteren irritated by all the changes
Does exactly what it says on the cover.
