    For Dummies?

    Overall, the book has been helpful. While I have used Excel quite a bit over the last 13-14 years, I'm by no means an expert, but not a dummy either. I did learn a lot about using formulas between different tabs on a spreadsheet--this has been very helpful. The one thing I still haven't learned is formatting times--if I want to list the times to do a certain task, and then get a sum, I'm not able to do that. Maybe I need to study the book a little more. Other than that, it has been beneficial

    A lighter read than other tech manuals.

    I am looking for ways to teach Excel to co-workers, without going too technical, and wanted to see the depth of info provided in this book. It is okay, but sometimes the writing style seemed a bit to cute and entertaining.
