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.

Format: Paperback
Pros: comprehensive book, and for sure it has tons of info you would ever need.

Cons: 1: quite hard to read and you have to be really concentrated.

2: it mentions a lot of buttons' names throughout the book, but the name of a button is only differentiated from the rest of the text by giving it an uppercase letter, that is it. As a result, you have to be super super concentrated, and so it slows you down.(why not give it a box, an underline, or a tiny real-time snapshot).

3. There are even some errors for button names (I cannot believe it! Maybe the author's Excel 2010 is not the same as mine???). For example, this book says "click the Funciton Wizard button on the Formula bar...", but heck, my Excel 2010 shows "Insert Function", So go figure how that feels for a rookie.

4. There should be more exampels to illustrate how to use the programs, but this book reads very boring like a gigantic instruction manual.

I am new to learn Excel 2010, but know other job related softwares; and I think this book is not a great book for those who have no basic computer know-how.

I got the Kindle addition thinking I could use my laptop, while using Excel on my desktop. You can not make out the charts, diagrams, illustrations in the E-Book.
This is not very helpful, when you are teaching yourself Excel. The hard copy would be better.

This book is great in that I've used for solutions and answers when in the process of using Excel. It has adequately shown me how to use Excel more effectively that I was able to before. I was going to take a course (for ~$100), but this is a better solution because it only gives me what I need at the time and not what I don't need!

Harvey does a great job organizing and covering all the important topics in Excel. I regularly use this book as a quick reference, but having read it cover to cover I highly recommend it for all levels of users.

I've used excel for 10 years or so, and what I've learned about it has been just what I needed to learn in order to perform data analysis as a portion of my job. Using this book as a self-teaching tool has given me a much firmer foundation in the program. I've also found it helpful as a resource on my desk to turn to in order to perform specific functions. (In fact, so have others in my office) Pleased with the purchase on both a personal and professional level.

Format: Paperback
This book does not include very much information on graphing; that is, it does not include much at all on making graphs. If you need graphing, look elsewhere. The 20 word minimum is a pain.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I actually thought my Excel skill level was intermediate. However,
compared to my co-workers, I feel like a beginner. So I purchased
this book to add to the skills I already have, since many employers
use this software and are looking for advanced users. And you can
never go wrong with these "Dummies" publications. I also have one
for Quickbooks, that I refer to at work. It is well worth the small investment.
