3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but not for indicated audience June 27 2007
The back of this book lists it's applicability as "Intermediate/Advanced". This is incorrect as there is absolutely nothing advanced in the entire book.

The first 700 pages can easily be viewed as beginner material. Very well written beginner material, but still beginner.

About 1/4 of the pivot table chapter (the last quarter) would be what I would consider intermediate.

The chapters on external data, again, are presented at an intermediate level. The chapters on Collaborating are beginner to intermediate level. The VBA chapters manage to be superficial and intermediate at the same time. Not an easy feat!

The final part, again, beginner to intermediate.

Very well written, clear, and good examples. A great beginners book. But if you are truly looking for an 'intermediate/advanced' book on Excel (as the back cover suggests), you had best look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you need to go beyond the Dummies publications April 27 2008
By Crystal - Published on Amazon.com
I had the Dummies publication to start me off on Excel 2007. I was familiar with 2003, but 2007 with its "ribbon" threw me off because the commands were in different places. Plus there are some new bells and whistles for 2007. I needed to finish a project for work and figure out ways I could work within the security/systems constraints and this book did it for me. Most of the other books didn't have enough detail to solve my problem. Not a perfect book and Excel and the other Office applications have gotten so sophisticated I don't think any book cover possible cover everything, but if you need to go beyond Dummies, consider this publication as an overall guide to assist you with Excel 2007.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good information, poor quality control July 6 2008
By R. Beerbower - Published on Amazon.com
The information presented in the book is quite detailed, and generally on the money in showing me what I need to know. I hit a problem with chapter 6 though. At first it looked like half the chapter was missing. On further investigation pages 131-162 are out of order. The pages run from 1 - 130, 163 - 194, 131 - 162, and then 195 and on. I'm returning the book to Amazon for replacement. Otherwise I'm quite happy with the book

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this book. It is very detailed and very well structured. A must have if you are new to Excel 2007 (which is different than the previous versions but 100 times better and easier to use).

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Excel Reference Jan. 14 2009
By John A. Durant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Complete rundown of the 2007 features with solid explanations. I would call this a thinking person's manual in that there is a certain level of technical expertise assumed. My wife has taken a job where she has been asked to provide some more elegant solutions for existing docuemnts. So far the book has not failed her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Jelen for Minutae May 18 2007
By Brews - Published on Amazon.com
To parallel my review of "Special Edition: Using Excel 2007", let me consider the same examples.

1. Cursor motion: complete discussion on p. 136 under Data Entry: no reference in the index, however.
2. File properties: not discussed, but correct information given in the "Menu to Ribbon Command Reference, Appendix A" p. 909
3. Single data point label on a chart: Procedure on p. 624
4. Setting Maximum Iterations and Maximum Change for Goal Seek: p. 601
5. How to access Solver once installed: p. 603

So all these annoying omissions in "Special Edition" are corrected here. That leads me to think this book is preferable to "Special Edition" for many minutae.

However, its index is not great, and many topics are given only short discussion. For example, the discussion of "Naming a Formula" (p. 448) is only a paragraph, while Jelen has a five-page discussion with several examples to show its utility (pp. 857-862).
