This is a good book to get you started working with excel. It takes away the fear factor. It could give better detail on how to build formulas. It is a fairly simple, basic book and does not really deal with formulas as much as it could. It is very good at other aspects though, such as just getting started putting together a spread sheet.

This book came in very handy with the accounting class that I am taking. I had a little knowledge but not much and this book helps alot. I keep it right next to my computer and pull it out and use it on a daily basis. I continue to learn new tricks and shortcuts to make my life easier.

Started a new job and was not used to using the 2007 version of Excel. The book is very informative and helped me greatly. Would recommend this book to anyone needing help with Excel 2007

I suppose that you'd be inteested in this book for one of two reasons.

First, you're a newcommer to Excel and want to be hand held from the beginning to get started. I suppose that there must be at least a few people out there who don't know Excel - Well, my mother doesn't, but she's not likely to read this book anyway.

Second, and I suspect most of us fit into this category, we've been using Excel for a lot of years, but at a fairly rudimentary level. We do expense accounts, a few formulas to check things out, maybe use it as a calculator, etc. We don't do things like macros or pivot tables.

Now though, there's a new version of Excel - Excel 2007. It is worth spending the bucks on? What does it have that I might find useful? And I don't want to just see the Microsoft hype, I want a bit more than that. So here for twenty bucks or so is not only a description of what's new, but how to use it.

As best I can tell, the biggest change in Excel 2007 in in its user interface. There's a new look on the screen called the ribbon. This seems to replace all the various toolbars and the like from previous versions with a new layout that puts the bulk of the Excel commands you use only one click away. (The existing File button is replaced by an 'Office' button.) Furthermore, the Ribbon appears to be a dynamic thing. As you are doing something different, for example charting, a different set of frequently used commands appear in the Ribbon. The Ribbon is also easy to customize, so if you're doing a spreadsheet for someone else to use, you can get rid of things that might get them into trouble.

Down inside there are a bunch of other changes.

The section on financial formulas contains some horribly incorrect information (totally wrong on NPV interpretation) and for some reason skips a description of IRR - one of the most used financial functions. Otherwise a good introduction to Excel 2007.

I have several of these books on different subjects and although it is a good training or reference book, I would have preferred VISUALS as they are much easier for me to follow. What I like about the DUMMY line, is the reading material is in simple terms and not that WAY OUT THERE technical terms that I doubt the real computer geeks even understand.

I've had this book for at least a year and finally need to use it now. I'm testing for Excel 2007 certification and this book will help me to study all of the functions. Whoever said it is too simplistic is wrong. Look at the later chapters! There are chapters teaching about pivot tables, hyperlinks and macros, and managing/manipulating data lists. This isn't the simple stuff in my opinion. I'm glad I already have the book to get me up to speed for the certification. If I pass the exam on the first try, I'll come back to add that to my review. :-)

This is a great book. It seems to cover all the new features of 07. I have learned a lot with just a few glances. Not for the advanced excel user. I use it as a per needed reference and it has not let me down yet.
