This book is excellent for seasoned Excel users and people who were taught (but didn't learn) statistics in your average graduate school program. I have never seen statistical concepts so briefly and at the same time well explained. Actually applying the concepts adds another level of learning. I highly recommend this book.

I bought this book to help me with the statistical analyses involved with my senior dissertation at my university. I am a psychology major and I could use all the help I could get understanding the Results Sections in the literature. This book explains all kinds of statistics, including the very helpful ANOVA and regression analysis amongst many other. However, it doesn't explain very well when or why you use these statistics. They don't provide many examples of research or problems that require such analyses. This book is great for a step by step tutorial using Excel and handwriting statistics problems, and reading your data.... but unless you have an idea of what you're looking for in the first place, don't bother. I am totally ignorant to statistical analyses and coming into this book, I didn't know when to use ANCOVA or even what precisely it was demonstrating in relation to the research I am conducting... and I still only have a vague idea... Hopefully this will all be explained in course. But, this is a valued reference for all Excel users, without a doubt!!

Excel is of course first and foremost a spreadsheet. They were designed to allow you to play what if senarios. You can change this part of the budget to see what the effect is over there.

But beyond the spread sheet functionality Excel has numerous functions and capabilities to do all kinds of analysis capabilities.

This book is on using these functions to perform a whole range of statistical functions. Not only does this book cover the functions themselves, but gives the background and description of what this particular kind of function is doing. Both numerical analysis and charting functions are included and in detail.

Don't skip the part in this book called the Part of Tens. This section in the For Dummies books often has some interesting points, but here the summation of statistical limitations is just great.

I ordered this book because I am trying to brush up on statistics for a course I need to take (or try to test out of). Since the last time I took stats, everything was pencil, paper and calculator, I thought it might be a good idea to brush up on some of the statistical functionality.

I will tell you that I am very familiar with excel. I use it almost every day at work. However, I did pick up a few tricks when using this book. Overall, it was pretty helpful. It covered major stats content and showed the functionality.

I did find it a bit hard to follow. I'm a visual person, so I liked following along on my computer with the book. Unfortunately, almost every example uses a different set of numbers, so I was constantly inputting numbers to try to replicate the example (which was time consuming). Sometimes you couldn't even see the data set. It would be great if they had a place where you could download the data sets to follow along.

There were also a couple of places where I noted some of the examples had incorrect calculations. The steps and instructions by the author were right, but the visuals actually included some mistakes.

For what it is, I thought it was a very helpful reference if you're already familiar with both basic stats and excel. Otherwise, this book may not be for you.

I have been taking a statistics course and was terrible at the concepts being taught. Regression, Anova, single sample, etc. So I bought this book since I am a total dummy when it comes to Stats. The book really does a great job as long as you have windows and excel as you can imagine given the title of the book. :) I do recommend it to anyone struggling as it walks you through step by step of each type of problem and explains in clear english what exactly is going on. I found myself making notes, highlighting and referencing various formulas in it often. Thanks to this book I passed my stats class!

This is an excellent resource for those who need to do statistical analysis, but who don't want to (or can't afford) to hire it professionally done.

Excel has many sophisticated statistical analysis tools built in. The author explains how to access these capabilities, how to decide which of them to use, and how to use them correctly. In addition, there is a great deal of information on designing graphs to display the results of the analysis.

In addition, the author introduces each statistical function by explaining what the function does, how it does it, and why one might consider using it. The examples are brief, but that's because the book isn't intended to be a comprehensive introduction to statistics. (One excellent book for that is "Statistics for Dummies," by Deborah Rumsey.)

As is the case with most of the "for Dummies" books, this one divides the information into short, easily digestible bites. The writing style is somewhat breezy, but that never interferes with the utility of the book.

This is an excellent, short reference that is worth every penny. I'm very happy I bought it, and I'd do it again.
