Every time a new version of Microsoft Excel appears, you're introduced to another batch of powerful features—most of which you'll never understand or use.

The companion CD tutorial guides you through each lesson interactively.Excel 2003 Personal Trainer includes sections on editing, formatting, functions, formulas, lists, macros, creating and managing workbooks, and creating and editing charts. You'll also learn data analysis, what-if analysis, pivot tables, how get Excel to work with other programs and the Internet, and advanced topics like using detect and repair. Every chapter includes detailed diagrams and a review at the end to help you absorb and retain all you have learned.If you already use Excel, you can dive right into those topics (and only those topics) that you need or want to learn.
