'This second edition...upholds the positive properties of the first. For instance, as in the first edition, it takes the trouble to define its terms...there is no deficit of detailed explanation, and a glance at the index will soon satisfy the potential purchaser that the addition 'for Scientists and Engineers' is no misnomer'Quality and Reliability Engineering International, March/April 2002 ''Excel is too powerful a tool to be left to accountants. It is so broadly available that all science and engineering studaents 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."Materials World, January 2002 'Aimed specifically at scientists and engineers, this is a book that will be referred to again and again, providing invaluable information on the more technical functions of Microsoft Excel'. Engineering Designer, March 2001. "Rarely do you see such a great book." Dr A. N. F. Mack, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia. (Of the first edition.) 'aims to give scientific and engineering students a clear introduction to the use of Excel for the analysis and presentation of experimental results' Machinery Market, November 2000. 'This book is a useful learning aid and will extend the practical use of spreadsheets beyond that of a calculator and graph-drawing software. It is designed to show how to get results ans how the process can be appliedto reader's own specialist field.'Concrete, December 2000 'The book is practical with problem sets at the end of chapters, and designed to give readers a wide range of examples from which to apply Excel to problems in a particular field.'

This book is a must for anybody studying science and engineering subjects at both foundation and advanced levels alike. The step-by-step guides and fully illustrated examples really make this book a cut above the rest.

Expensive for this price.
on 16 October 2002 - Published on Amazon.com
While it would be useful for begineers, I find most of the concepts are raher short and simply presented. I think the amount of information given does not worth to that price. Especially, section regarding writting macros and prograaming are very limited and mostly in psude-code style which doesn't help you gain the experience of excel preograaming.
Practical use of spreadsheets

Very helpful examples and good focus on fomulas, equation solving and statistical functions. Report writing section was useful as well.
