Format: Paperback
Excel 2010: the missing manual is part of a growing series of reference manuals for popular software products. Mr MacDonald has also written Access 2010 among other books. A CD with training exercises is not available but a website is available to download the necessary essentials.

Before starting the tutelage, the author describes all the new stuff Microsoft built into this latest version. Throughout the book, there are also many illustrations to help the reader follow the narrative. There are also samples of dialogs that you'll meet in using the program, giving tips on how best to use the dialogs. Interesting sidebars also adds to your learning experience.

The manual targets the absolute novice who hasn't used a spreadsheet before and people who have been using Excel for a while but at a basic level and will transport them to an intermediate level of expertise if so desired. The author starts at the beginning, showing how to open a spreadsheet and then taking a tour of the many features the program has. He slowly and deliberately progresses to adding and moving data, formatting, managing multiple sheets as well as printing your work. Moving on, building formulas and using the many built-in formulas including using the family of "if" statements, math, financial, time, text etc is given high priority. Moving into more interesting fields, List Management, Grouping Data, building templates and creating charts and adding pictures is presented. The program also has clip art and a decent drawing editor that the author shows you how to use.
Moving deeper into Databases, creating Scenarios, Pivot tables, web queries and connecting to a SQL server is next, followed by using Excel with other programs.
The last two chapters cover using VBA in automating tasks.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excel 2010: The Missing Manual offers a great guide to Excel 2010. Matthew MacDonald does three things quite well in this book: (1) covers the important features of Excel, (2) explains the features in a user-friendly way, and (3) makes the topic of using Excel interesting.

Excel 2010 has hundreds of features -- this book focuses on the features that address common real-world situations, such as generating monthly financial reports and updating files with new data. MacDonald explains how to use Excel's many features and functions in an easy-to-follow and non-technical manner. In addition, the author manages to keep this subject matter, which could prove dry and dense, interesting and engaging.

I am a long-time and regular user of Excel as well as the author of a book on building financial models with Microsoft Excel (Building Financial Models with Microsoft Excel: A Guide for Business Professionals (Wiley Finance)). This book (Excel 2010: The Missing Manual) is among the very best guides to the general use of Microsoft Excel that I have come across.

Recommended reading for users of Microsoft Excel 2010 -- new Excel users and users migrating to Excel 2010 alike.

33 of 33 people found the following review helpful By A. Ferreira on May 22, 2011
Format: Paperback
I was looking for an explanation on a specific Excel formula to make it do what I wanted. (Vlookup)
I went to the local bookstore and perused several Excel books to try to find the book I should buy. This book was the ONLY one that gave me the one critical piece of information that I had to have to make my formula include partial matches in the way I had to have them work.
As a novice Excel user, I need things explained really basic. So many books give explanations that I feel are way above my ability to grasp.
This book told me in simple terms what I needed and gave me an EASY example to go by.
And it worked, the first time...flawlessly.
I don't use excel's many wonderful features enough to use this book on a daily basis but you can bet it will be on my shelf for reference when I come across those circumstances when I'm out of my league.
But you know, I might just read this book some more and see what I've been missing.....it's that good.

'Excel 2010: The Missing Manual' might be one of the most impressive books in a line of titles that never fail to amaze me. Packing an enormous 850+ pages of power, this book will show you all the ins and out of Microsoft Excel, and the key word is ALL.

Let's take a look at what this gem has to offer.

Chapter List

1-7: Basics of using Excel and the goodness it provides
8: Building Basic Forumlas
9: Math & Statistical Functions
10: Financial Functions
11: Dates, Time, Text
12-13: Advanced Function and Formula Writing
14: Tables
15: Grouping Data
16: Templates
17-18: Using Charts
19: Graphics
20-21: Visualizing Data & Goal Setting
22: Pivot Tables
23: Databases, XML, Web Pages
24: Protecting Workbooks
25: Collaboration
26: Excel on the Web
27: Talking to other Apps
28-29: Macros and Programming with VBA

The author of the book is Matthew MacDonald, and if you don't know him, you should. He's one of the best computer/technical book writers on the market today, the quality and ease of reading is apparent everywhere you look.

Whether you are an Excel newbie, amateur, or expert, nearly anyone can get something from this book. There is a reason why these books are called 'Missing Manuals' because it's like having a class by your side, all the time.

***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
