Format: Paperback
This book is great for those of us who are new to Office 2007. I recommend getting this over a computer manual. This provides step-by-step instructions on how to use Excel 2007 (including Macros). It also provides lots of excercises in the back of each chapter to reinforce your learning. The instructions are very easy to follow. One draw-back is that it is a bit repetitive on the easy instructions. Each chapter has a mix of easy and complex activities to learn.

This book appears to cover just about everything. It looks nice, has color pictures, repetitive charts and tables, and side bars, lots of side bars. And afterthoughts on the sidebars.

It is very wordy and one will probably be yawning quite a bit from looking at it.

This book does excel(no pun intended) on the pre-process of making workbooks. It shows the questions that need to be asked and how to go about laying the requirements out. For some, though, this will be a tedious venture to go through since most of this information will already be provided in many real life scenarios.

This book has a pretty steep $100 price and one might think this would come with a back massage or the ability to wash the dishes. Most people could probably get by with a $30 Visual Quickstart book or something of the like.

This book was assigned for an online Excel class that I took through the local junior college. The instructions are clearly written and easy to follow, but I found (and my instructor agreed) that the book doesn't prepare students to work in Excel on their own, it only teaches us how to do the examples in the book. Our class went through the entire book and I finished every assignment with good grades and feedback from the instructor. Despite all that, I was totally flumoxed by the independent final project. Very frustrating after having spent 3 months trying to learn how to use the program!
I recommend the Go! series of MS books, and the New Perspectives books are very good, too. They leave the reader with more usable knowledge after completing the exercises in the texts.

I've only done three chapters to date, but I feel this textbook is one of the best I've used for a computer program. The lessons are clearly written and illustrated, and the problems are challenging yet do-able. The on-line tests make me go back to the textbook for information I missed. I highly recommend this textbook.

It is a good book to learn about Excel. It is truly a comprehensive book. Although it is too wordy. There is too much explanation. I would prefer something that is more to the point and takes less learning time.

Book arrived promptly and in good shape. Book very well written. Just follow it along and expecially good if you put examples into your computer while you are going along with the exercise.

Would use this shipper again. Very prompt with shipping!

This is one of a long line of extremely excellent texts on Microsoft Office. I bought this particular version because where I work we received donated computers for the clients, many of which had Office 2007 on them. Having taken courses in Office 97 and 2003 using these authors' texts, it was natural that I would select Office Word 2007 and Office Excel 2007 as the text from which I would teach. I was not disappointed, and I surprised myself somewhat by learning more that I thought I would.

The price was extremely good, and the delivery was ahead of the time promised. The condition of the book was better, in my opinion, than the description on the site. Shipping was very reasonable in cost.

All told, I am very happy with this purchase.

This book was required for a college online class. I too, find the presentation haphazard for retaining the knowledge. If you have never used Excel, it's probably a good book. It is comprehensive, however the instruction could be condensed and better organized for learning to use Excel. I also think the "other ways" to perform various functions are easier to retain than the step-by-step presentation in each chapter. For class assignments, the Quick Reference Summary is far more helpful than info contained in each chapter. Surely teachers and professors can find a better (and less expensive) textbook to use!
