Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this book to evaluate it for use in engineering classes I teach. I use Etter's FORTRAN book in my programming-for-engineers class, so I expected more than I got in this thin volume. It is way too elementary for most engineers already familiar with Excel. It may be useful for Excel beginners. To anyone with a decent understanding of Excel, I recommend buying a more detailed reference. This approximately 100-page book is WAY overpriced. I would love to hear from anyone who could steer me towards a book with more meat in it. I need a reference to help students learn to solve engineering problems with Excel.
