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 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.
