Microsoft® Excel is an incredibly useful program that businesses have used for years to keep track of all kinds of activities. Now, school administrators, teachers, and school board members are finding that Excel can be just as useful in the school environment. In fact, it can be an extremely useful tool for everyone who has school related responsibilities. Harvey Singer wrote this book based on his personal experiences teaching thousands of students in Excel classes, business training programs, traditional college classes, and in on-line classes. Each time a student asked a question, Singer rethought how the material in question had been presented and determined how to present it more effectively. Those effective presentations are provided in this comprehensive, user-friendly spreadsheet guide.
