Overview

This practical text is a perfect fit for introductory engineering courses by successfully combining an introduction to Excel fundamentals with a clear presentation on how Excel can be used to solve common engineering problems. Updated to ensure compatibility with Excel 2007, Spreadsheet Tools for Engineers Using Excel 2007 provides beginning engineering students with a strong foundation in problem solving using Excel as the modern day equivalent of the slide rule.

As part of McGraw-Hill's BEST series for freshman engineering curricula, this text is particularly geared toward introductory students. The author provides plenty of background information on technical terms, and provides numerous examples illustrating both traditional and spreadsheet solutions for a variety of engineering problems. The first three chapters introduce the basics of problem solving and Excel fundamentals. Beyond that, the chapters are largely independent of one another. Topics covered include graphing data, unit conversions, data analysis, interpolation and curve fitting, solving equations, evaluating integrals, creating macros, and comparing economic alternatives.

This book has information that carries over to Excel 2010, since it has much the same interface. Unfortunately, it does not have some of the new features of Excel 2010 in it. Since Excel 2010 was released after this book. Honestly, you can probably use this book (non-interface sections) as a way to learn how to do the same thing with Libreoffice Calc. My only problem is that you can only have this on two devices. And the first generation Nook does not count (it doesn't let me download and use it on the nook). Also, if you reinstall the operating system on your computer and then restore your files from a backup, you WILL need to delete this book and redownload it. It does not appear to add to the "x out of 2 available computers authorized" count however, which is good.
