“Excel by Example...shows you how you can use the ubiquitous spreadsheet application to model and analyze parts of your design...can help you become more efficient in many of the small-scale aspects of design. These aspects can take a suprisingly large amount of your time and yield many benefits when you work efficiently. The author has written for Circuit Cellar, and he must know his subject... - EDN August 2004
“This is an excellent resource for electronics engineers (and enthusiasts), and a great guide to the use of spreadsheet programs to high-end applications. Very well written and presented. - PC Update Online, Major Keary
“Anyone involved with engineering applications will find useful information in this book ... Kagan presents complete examples that show how commands work together. The author provides examples that include a voltage-to-current converter, a mean-time-between-failures (MTBF) calculator, and a voltage-regulator circuit calculator. The examples are not static. In the MTBF example, you can create "what-if" conditions that let you apply variables to see how they affect an outcome. - Jon Titus, Design News, May 15, 2006
Other Excel tutorials cover a range of applications, most of which are not related to electronics. This book covers all the most common uses of Excel in electronics engineering in one handy and concise volume. The CD-ROM with all the Excell worksheets that electronics engineers can use directly is a valuable design tool.
