I needed a book just for formulas. I've looked for 3 different ones so far and it had each one. I still need to take the time to look at others to see if they would be helpful.

Read and apply the easy-to-use examples and explanations in this book to break into an intermediate level of knowledge in Excel -- which is more than the vast majority of people ever can demonstrate. You will be able to use Excel for truly useful work in your office and never be embarrassed or have to say "no" when asked to do many of the things your boss or workgroup expects you to be able to do when dealing with numeric or textual data This book has been one of the best purchases I have ever made in my beginner's techical library.
