This book gives you a chance to catch up in Chapter 1 on the basics, like function key commands and Control plus C, Control plus V for copy and paste for example. Chapter 2 talks about the importance of validating and normalising data, while chapter 3 gives quick and easy solutions to cleansing your excel data.
Chapter 4 covers understanding when to use vlookups and is a very powerful chapter on the topic of vlookups.
Pivot tables is covered well, and is a necessary part of the armory of any clerk or accountant. Power query is used to cleanse data and is an exciting chapter to someone who used to spend laborious hours tidying up spreadsheets!
I am using the latest, office 365 and had to tweak some of the commands that Anne has in her book (based on excel 2010, I think). There were install issues with power pivot, so I didn’t complete this chapter satisfactorily.
Overall the book was enjoyable, and much cheaper than attending a week long course on advanced excel!
As well as a useful 'Back to Basics' reference section at the beginning of the book, she takes you step-by-step through the process of downloading data, cleaning it up, then setting it up so you can avoid having to re-do long laborious Excel tasks. From Vlookup to Pivot Tables, everything is explained clearly with clear examples, diagrams and screen shots to help you see what to do quickly and easily.
I've been using Excel for years, and I have learned a heap of short-cuts I never knew before that have made my Excel work faster and easier than ever before. I wish I'd had this book years ago, it would have made my life so much easier.
Best of all, Anne has a warm, humorous approach that makes the technical work of learning Excel feel far more fun than similar books. Highly recommended.
