I had to purchase this for a college class. The book lacks the specificity needed to actually perform some of the exercises listed at the end of each chapter. Yes the book is in depth. However it's not always helpful. I personally don't want to guess what the book is asking of me. I want to know exactly what it wants so I can properly answer the questions.

This book is absolutely awful. The topics it covers are in-depth, which is great, but this is the most poorly written book I have ever had to follow. I spend more time trying to figure out what it's asking me to do, and where it wants me to perform the calculations, than actually doing the work. It's just terrible. I can't believe that I have to pay a premium price for such a garbage textbook. Any professors looking at this book for an upcoming semester, please do your students a favour, and look elsewhere.

I have to spend too much time trying to figure out what the questions are and how to answer. Very poorly written and not easy to understand.

The book covers very obscure features of Excel, the reading provides pictorial and story example but there is no data files available to allow you to work hands on in Excel to follow the steps the characters in the examples are taking.

I'd rather put together IKEA furniture in the dark with a poisonous cobra as an assistant than use this book again. I teach basic Excel, so I am no noob. Even taking this book to a dear friend who is an Excel wizard resulted in him using more swear words than ANY sailor. It does go very in-depth but the directions lack, well, direction. This should be paired with a bottle of Excedrin for maximum value. Just say no.

My review is based on information that my husband told me. This book was rented for his advanced accounting course.

He didn't like this textbook at all. He said it was of the worst books on Excel that he has ever had to use. He actually had to refer to my old textbook, Microsoft Office 2007 by Shelly Cashman, to understand some of the instructions in this book. The book would give a list of instructions on a problem, but would not have a good example in the text. He struggled with the course because of this textbook.

I can't really say I would recommend it or not, because if you have to have it for your course - you have to have it. But if you do have to have it, be prepared to do some extra research on the instructions.

a little to long reading it takes to understand, more for students I would say. I like some applicable examples.

It's very easy to read and extremely descriptive. I rented the book, but I do plan on purchasing the textbook.
