Not the best option March 8 2007
By Rebecca K. Porter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have this and the Excel 2003 Bible. Don't waste time on this. Go right for Excel Bible. This one seems to be a duplicate with only a small amount of expansion. Excel 2003 Bible will help you through a lot more problems.

Okay, but no cigar Aug. 2 2006
By Book Buyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Typically these technical how-to books are badly written and rushed to print and I found this one to be no exception. Although it offers some helpful hints not found in other Excel guides, it is rather wordy and vague in places. Some of the sample formulas simply do not work or else are not explained fully in context. Added to this, the accompanying CD skimps on the first four chapters, making it impossible to follow along on some the exercises the author provides. In some cases, he doesn't even provide a sample table. I went out and bought a copy of Microsoft's Excel Data Analysis and Business Modeling and find this to be better written, much more comprehensive, and easier on the wallet.

It's the BOM! Jan. 27 2005
By Mfg Cost Analysis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I use Excel non-stop for Bill Of Material (BOM) and pricing/cost analysis for manufacturing. This is by far the best publication available for the number crunching workhorse. I just find it peculiar that John decided to introduce "financial formulas" in Chapter 11. But seriously, it's loaded with boo-koos of real word examples that have made my work much more automated and easier.

Excellent book, but there's a better choice July 30 2007
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've found that some reviewers say that this book doesn't give enough theory or examples are trivial or you can find that all in the Help. However, I believe that only advanced Excel users might be dissatiafied with "Excel 2003 Formulas". While that's true that it's not overloaded with the advanced theory (which is what professionals look for), it does give the beginners or intermidiate users all they need to know about formulas, and the tips and tricks offered by Walkenbach really help to discover the world of Excel.
However, on the other hand if you're interested not only in formulas, but you're also planning to study the Excel as a whole then I would recommend to get the "Excel 2003 Bible" of this author. The reason is that the "Formulas..." for the most part just copy the "Bible..." which describes usage of the whole Excel and has a lot more information than the "Formulas".
