Paperback / softback

Description

Master Excel in less than two weeks with this unique project-based book!

Let's face it, we all master skills in our own way, but building a soup-to-nuts project is one of the best ways to make learning stick and get up to speed quickly.

Whether you are just getting started with Excel or are an experienced user, this book will elevate your knowledge and skills.

For a beginner, the micro examples in each chapter will warm you up before you dive into the projects.

For experienced users, the projects, especially those with table setup considerations, will help you become more creative in your interactions with Excel. Readers will benefit from building eight unique projects, each covering a different topic, including a word game, a food nutrition ranking, a payroll (tax withholding) calculation, an encryption, a two-way table, a Kaplan-Meier analysis, a data analysis via a pivot table and the K-means Clustering data mining method.

Through these projects, you will experience firsthand how Excel skills are organized together to accomplish tasks that sound complex and daunting when first described. Get started with a word game which asks users to find English words that amount to exactly 100 points, with each letter of the alphabet assigned a point 1, 2, 3, ... 26, respectively. You will disassemble a word into letters and then sum up their points, and then take it one step further, contemplating how to make the completed Excel worksheet more user friendly and completely automated.

Increasingly challenging tasks like this example build on what you have learned and increase your confidence along the way, ensuring your mastery of Excel. What You Will LearnGain confidence to tackle a challenging Excel-related mission, even those that seem impossibleBecome skilled in the creative uses of Excel formulas and functions and other built-in features Appreciate the art of refining worksheets to maximize automationUnderstand the value of treating each worksheet as a unique productWho This Book Is ForPeople who are interested in learning Excel as quickly and efficiently as possible.
