27 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Mark A. Parrish on November 1, 2007
Format: Paperback
As a PMP, and a Wiley customer for years I find that this book provides me with no value and is a big disappointment. Clearly it was not written by project managers that would use this in the real world since the samples do not even work in calculating the sheets properly!!

This book doesn't tell you how to do the forms in Excel but shows you a form and says what it does. Wow would that be nice if a book on Excel taught you how to create the form with Excel. These are forms that could have been done in Word! There is nothing in this book that requires Excel. And even less to do with Sharepoint.

The calculations are simplistic on the workbooks and not checked. Just sums and averages. The book is full of errors that refer to things that are not in the examples and cannot be followed. IF THE AUTHORS WERE PM's THEY WOULD HAVE CHECKED THEIR WORK!!!

The downloaded samples that come from the website are horrible and only provide basic data that you can set up on your own. They conveniently left out the gantt chart from the samples that come with the book. The reason I purchased it, since it looked most promising. Also the charts and many others are not included even though the cover says all are provided.

The network diagrams do not take into account dependencies when figuring forward and backward passes. And they refer to data not in the sample graphic.

Do not buy this book. It is really bad and not for project managers.

I am a certified PMP and own many books on Project management. The book is very misleading in terms of excel and Project Management. Three fourths of the book explains what Project Management is. I found more useful templates from Microsoft. Also the included templates the book provides online are exraordinarily rudimentary.

Format: Paperback
Very disappointing. I'd guess 70% deals with Sharepoint & MOSS, rather than Excel. The PM discussions are a mix of PMP/PMBOK and overly-simplistic management guidelines. Most EXCEL techniques & how-to can be found by easy web search.

Format: Paperback
Combine the forces of Excel 2007, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server and other tools to build a project step by step using Excel 2007 for Project Managers, an outstanding manual which blends key management skills and needs with Excel and other standard office routines. From setting up schedules and budgets to using network diagrams, scatter charts, and assigning teams through Excel, Excel 2007 for Project Managers represents one of the best books we've seen blending project manager objectives with real-world applications in the Excel 2007 environment.
