This book is fantastic! I looked around, not knowing what book to choose to learn Excel and eventually went with this one from the ratings on the USA site. I now own four of the "Step-by-Step" books and intend to increase the number until I own the whole lot.

The only downside to this book is the sheer number of mistakes in the excercises. About one in every thirty instructions has a mistake where parts are already done. It seems there was very little or no QA when putting these out. The book itself has very little in the way of mistakes and is well written.

If you can overlook the bad side (it's not really that bad just a little annoying at parts) it's going to be a book worth your time and money.

there is a number of mistakes in the book
there are no exercises at the end of each chapter
there is no further guidelines on how to work with Macro, as there are no further explanation about functions, etc

however, the book clarifies clearly every objective of every chapter, so it helps us to understand why we do what the book shows us to do. It goes straight to the point.

this book is suitable for those who want to get a basic touch of Excel before moving on to advanced level.

I am not initially impressed due to the following, hence the low rating
Chapter 1 - Checking & Correcting Data.
Document SBS\Excel\gettingtoknowxl\replace
You are instructed to find the word Comfy and replace with cushy. Find cells in italics and change amount to £47.95
The changes have already been done and saved on the CD.
Chapter 2 Setting up a workbook
Instructions to Merge and centre cells E2 to G2 - they have alrady been merged and centred.
Adding a Graphic
Page 35 advises graphic is in Settingupworkbook folder when it is actually in changingdocappearance folder.
These errors have been found after only 2 chapters, I will update the review as I work through the book.

The ideal book to get to grips with spreadsheets if you haven't used them before or if you have limited knowledge.
