Not as clear as it could be

This book isn't for everyone, and definately not dummies - I feel some of the illustrated examples given were overly complicated, ar added steps which you hadn't really wanted to know about, instead of giving you the basic function, and then giving you another example or illuistration adding another step to it.
For example, theVlookup example illustrated names a range and also uses an offset within the function - all very nice if you know what that means, but just a basic Vlookup example would have been better as a starting point!
I'm fairly good on excel, and just wanted a refresher course before going back to work, but for a newbie at excel it just complicates what may already be a head scratching thing.
