Have to agree with the other three star reviews.,
This review is from: VBA and Macros: Microsoft Excel 2010 (MrExcel Library) (Paperback)
While I committed to work through this book, I can't give it five stars.
I feel like this book tries to get too practical, too fast.
If teaching is leading someone along a path to a destination, I feel like it has too many distractions. I have over 20 years experience with spreadsheets and 10+ years in teaching and writing training manuals. As a comparison of a good Excel manual, but for functions rather than VBA I would recommend Bern Held's Microsoft Excel Functions & Formulas. It takes you step-by-step from one concept to the next with an exercise.
For example, the first case study has 21 steps showing you how to use a macro to create report. The purpose of the case study is to show why you need to:
1) Use relative references
2) Use special navigation keys
3) Never use AutoSum.
I am creating a supplementary training document for myself which will simplify the exercises.
