Top Customer Reviews
I should state that I have a BBA and a CIS major, took Office and Advanced Excel in Business College, graduated 10 years ago. I haven't used Excel on a regular basis and never considered myself an expert in charting. I am a data programmer, work with databases and support Enterprise software. I've read much material on dashboarding over the last month.
I have a high profile dashboarding project that I've undertaken at work. This book has given me some good insight into dashboarding paradigms, some good examples of clean graphs/charts so far. It's also given me a good understanding of the data underneath the chart. How to get the data setup for dashboarding. Setting up areas in the spreadsheet that are dynamic table areas which rely on more raw data placed in the spreadsheet. Connecting the dynamic areas to a particular graph on the dashboard. Ultimately I will use a product that will initially have Excel as it's foundation but will migrate into a relationship database over the next couple years.
After consuming the contents of this book, will make the best effort to return and give some overall feedback of the book. For the price, it makes a great reference book and I don't regret buying the book.
