Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The CD-ROM's value lies in several different modes. First as a remedial tool for refreshing students' understanding of expected (prerequisite) Excel skills...Secondly, it would serve as a supplemental source for material covered in class...Finally, it could be the sole source for techniques not covered in class, but which the students are expected to learn on their own...The strengths of the project are in these multiple uses and in the ability of the student to view and review material at their own pace." David Schilling, Ohio State University

"Overall, I like the ideas in [EXCEL ESSENTIALS FOR DECISION MAKING]. I do see the value in a product of this type. The key strengths of this project are in helping the weaker students and saving the instructor valuable class time." Abe Feinberg, California State University-Northridge
