Overview

Become a pro using Excel for statistical analysis

Designed for users already familiar with basic computer operations, Neil J. Salkind’s Excel Statistics: A Quick Guide shows readers how to utilize the features of Microsoft® Excel to answer both simple and complex questions about data analysis. Part I explores thirty Excel functions, each one detailed on a two-page spread. The description and use of each function appear on one page with corresponding screen shots of the function in action on the facing page, allowing the user to see what the function looks like as it is being applied. Part II of the text contains fifteen Analysis Toolpak tools, each explained using the same two-page spread design as for the functions. Excel novices and experts alike will find this text not only practical but easy to use and engaging.
