    good for the Excel novice

    Unlike some other books on various versions of Excel, Etheridge's presentation accentuates a strong visual pedagogy. She has also hewed to a style where very 2 facing pages discusses some operation you can do. Those of you who read the O'Reilly books will recognise this as analogous to the O'Reilly Hacks series. So what Etheridge offers is really a set of bite-sized tasks. Easy to learn and immediately apply. The tasks are diverse. Like doing date computations. Or using the built in future value function. Or the interest rate, compounded over several payment periods. Some tasks relate to the visual display of the tables. As in changing a table's style. Or making a PivotTable. The tasks are not comprehensive. The book should not be considered as such. This is not an official Excel manual, per se. Instead, enough is shown to be useful, of common activities that you are likely to perform. Well suited for an Excel novice.

    Run of the Mill

    This book was a major disappointment, The author did not show much creativity. I was not inspired by the limited number of examples compared to what I have in other books on earlier versions of Excel. I have learned more from online web tutorials. Save your money.
