This book is vey slow to load and it sometimes makes me have to close out of the application. Some of the pages wont turn so you need tojump ahead... which sucks because sometimes it will stop. I got it to use as a reference ebecause I am not too familur with Excel, but it is so slow that it would be easier if I just found quick tips online. Save your money.
