My entire class hated this book. It is vague, doesn't flow well, and the exercises seem to not match the examples provided, leaving you clueless on many occasion. There is a very minimal index and glossary and there needs to be a place that has all the Excel help in one place. One classmate says, 'Worst textbook ever!' Be leery of any class that uses this text.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
