I use Excel at work all the time and this book is always within an arm's reach. The formulas and functions chapters are especially helpful -- as are the ones on PivotTables, building Macros, and sharing data with other programs. If you're only going to buy one book on Excel, buy this one!

Excel 2003 All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies is a great overall book for Excel 2003. It will get you going on Excel 2003 even if you have a minimal amount of experience in Excel. Introduces you to formulas, charts, pivot tables and other subjects that most people need in order to fully utilizing the power of Excel. Written very well and easy to understand.

I've read quite a few computer how-to books. I prefer to learn by example, which this book offers very little of. Rather than showing you how to do something, this book tells you how to do it in a long drawn out process.

I could not figure out how to use the advanced filter command with this book. I checked out the Excel 2003 Bible from the library and I was able to use this feature within 5 minutes. Do not buy this book!

I specifically bought this book to learn about conditional formulas. Big disappointment! The explanation was short, didn't cover the necessary details like how to use the $ symbol in formulas, and was impossible to understand. I found Excel for Starters, The Missing Manual more helpful.

This is a brilliant book - one that every Excel user needs on their desk. You will refer to it again and again - whether you are a beginner or an advanced user needing to brush up on something. I was certainly not disappointed and can recommend it to all Excel Users.

First, Excel is a software product designed to analyze data. It is NOT intended to solve problems. Unless your problem is how to use Excel.
This book should be about how to enter data, how to exploit the data, how to plot graphs, how to make visuals. It should also be about how to move files, how to email files, or share files. I would love to see how to apply the same formula to every column without having to explicitly name every cell. This is a problem with Excel. This book could have been written in 30 pages. The big problem is Excel's limitations.

More About the Author

Greg Harvey has authored tons of computer books, the most recent being Excel Timesaving Techniques For Dummies and Roxio Easy Media Creator For Dummies, and the most popular being Excel 2003 For Dummies and Excel 2003 All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies. He started out training business users on how to use IBM personal computers and their attendant computer software in the rough and tumble days of DOS, WordStar, and Lotus 1-2-3 in the mid-80s of the last century. After working for a number of independent training firms, he went on to teach semester-long courses in spreadsheet and database management software at Golden Gate University in San Francisco.
His love of teaching has translated into an equal love of writing. For Dummies books are, of course, his all-time favorites to write because they enable him to write to his favorite audience, the beginner. They also enable him to use humor (a key element to success in the training room) and, most delightful of all, to express an opinion or two about the subject matter at hand.
Greg received his doctorate degree in Humanities in Philosophy and Religion with a concentration in Asian Studies and Comparative Religion last May. Everyone is glad that Greg was finally able to get out of school before he retired.
