Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Greg Harvey's hugely impressed with the latest incarnation of Excel, and his excitement is contagious. With his help, and Excel's new interface, you can get "into the flow" with Excel, making it as natural to you as any other tool you own.

Addressing a pet peeve of ours, Harvey offers a full "mini-book" on spreadsheet design -- including a chapter on safely editing workbooks others have created. There's a mini-book on Excel's most important formulas and functions, and another that takes you inside Excel 2007's completely revamped charting tools.

Harvey doesn't just cover Excel 2007's "how to" -- he tells you the "so what," too. And, while all the basics are covered well, he knows you want to do much more with Excel: You want to transform data into knowledge, and collaborate towards smarter decisions. Features like these represent fully one-third of this extremely useful and friendly book. Bill Camarda, from the February 2007 Read Only

Meet the Author

Greg Harvey has authored tons of computer books, the most recent being Excel 2007 For Dummies, Windows Vista For Dummies Quick Reference, and Excel Workbook For Dummies. He started out training business users on how to use IBM personal computers and their attendant computer software in the rough-and-tumble days of DOS, WordStar, and Lotus 1-2-3 in the mid-80s of the last century. After working for a number of independent training firms, he went on to teaching semester-long courses in spreadsheet and database management software at Golden Gate University in San Francisco.
His love of teaching has translated into an equal love of writing. For Dummies books are, of course, his all-time favorites to write because they enable him to write to his favorite audience, the beginner. They also enable him to use humor (a key element to success in the training room) and, most delightful of all, to express an opinion or two about the subject matter at hand.

    Excellent resource text to help get through latest version of Excel

    Since Excel has been revised in the 2007 release, it has been difficult for users to find and make use of the features that they need. This book provides direction in clear language to users like myself who need concise and easy to find explanations for Excel features.

    This is a very useful book and one that all Excel 2007 users will find most helpful
