    BAD! Awful! Terrible!

    This is almost the only textbook out there for Mac, Microsoft Excel. I had no choice and bought it to refresh my skills on my Mac. It has all the theoretical examples but it would have been more engaging and easy to learn if it included some sort of a case I could follow. I don't like this book at all. Do not waste your time and money.
