I have used spreadsheets since they first existed. I'm dealing with Excel for the MAC, but some omissions are just terrible. As an example, try to find the explanation for the Fill function under the Edit pull down doesn't exist. You won't find it in the index. I found numerous other examples when the text did not match the release and the Index failed. Copying cells with other cell references, do not adjust properly. I attribute this to poor programming.
Good format, but for advanced topics leaves the reader wanting more... Excel NEEDS a more in-depth manual! There are many ways to use Excel that most people don't know about...
As with the majority of Excel programmers, I began using spreadsheets on the PC. When I much later switched to using Mac platforms, I could only describe the differences between the two Excel implementations as quirky, especially when it comes to dates. This book is the only one I have found that clearly explains all of the Mac nuances.
There is a lot of information here and pretty accessible. Being a geezer, I respond faster to books than googling something, but I am slowly dirfting that way. As usual, MS moved the same old functions to new places. Most are more intuitive, but I need help finding them. The book does that most of the time.
New to Mac but long experience with Pc's & Microsoft and all my files on Word & Excel, I had to have MS 2011 for Mac or otherwise stick with a PC. Transition was easy but there are variables and added complexity which in my view are unnecessary. There of course is no manual and the online help is too sketchy especially for graphing. The Missing Manual by Pogue is helpful but it too is short on tech help. So in sum, it's good and a must have if you are switching to Mac. On the other hand, it embellishes too much on the more straight forward V2007.
Its a good book and the best one I have bought and I have bought several. Excel is very challenging and the book starts with the very basics although I think there could have been a few more basic definitions.
For me, as a beginner in Excel, total waste of money. I myself still think the program ought to help the user, instead of the other way around. But thats my issue. But this book reflects this. No simple way of presenting this program. Just paragraphs and paragraphs making no sense to me.So for me a complete waste...of money too..for instance... hoe do i start graphs.. could not find it. The basic instructions lack..One star and it is still too much
This is the book I've been looking for. It has all the answers to all the questions before I ask them. It's just great.
