Top Customer Reviews
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.

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).
