Synopses & Reviews
Do you use Excel for simple lists, but get confused and frustrated when it comes to actually doing something useful with all that data? Stop tearing your hair out: Head First Excel helps you painlessly move from spreadsheet dabbler to savvy user.
We think your time is too valuable to waste struggling with new concepts. Using the latest research in cognitive science and learning theory to craft a multi-sensory learning experience, Head First Excel uses a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works, rather than a text-heavy approach that will put you to sleep.

Are you afraid to try something different? Then this book is not for you. However, if you prefer stimulating dinner party conversation to dull academic lectures, welcome home.

Information is presented in different ways for different learning styles, with emphasis on word-picture relationships, stories, and open-ended questions. The book covers beginning and advanced skills for new and experienced Excel users, with material progressing from formulas through data types, text functions, pivot tables, Booleans, and segmentation. The book ends with brief instructions for installing the Excel add-in called Solver. Milton is a programmer. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
