You Must Have This Book.

If you only buy one book on Excel, this should be the one. If you are a low intermediate user (i.e. not brand new to it, but with a passing familiarity) up through seasoned Excel veteran, this book is a help. There are many hidden secrets in Excel. Do you know how to use Array formulas? Create Custom conditional formatting? Save time with Auto-functions? That Circular References can be a good thing? How to give cells names, then use names instead of cell references in your equations so they are easier to edit / understand (I.E. =(Cost of Goods Sold / Sales) vs. =(A1/C3)? How to use VBA to create the exact function you need? This book has it all, plus all the basics and hidden shortcuts (some not even published) I.E. Using CTRL+Shift+F9 to force recalculation.This book is extremely lucid and easy to understand. Every piece of information is supported by examples. I am a financial analyst and extremely experienced with Excel, yet this book is still helpful. It is almost a one-stop shop, seemingly lacking little. I also have an MBA. MBA's, buy this book BEFORE you by the MBA's Guide to Excel. I did it the other way around, and knowing what I know now, would not have purchased the Guide. In my opinion, anyone considering an Excel guide purchase, should purchase Excel 2000 Formulas first. It is much more than just a list of formulas. It is truly an excellent book, will save you time, effort, and frustration, and is an excellent value even at twice the price.

Has been a great help

I have used this book for some time and I still have a good impression on the book. I refer it in my day to day work. I admit this book cant be used solely as the only guide especially for newbie but it serve as a good complement with other guides.

stop punishing yourself with MSDN

Dino tells all in this superb and in depth look at XML on Microsoft's .NET platform. The book is well organized, starting at the fundamental classes and then branching out to the high abstraction level .NET classes and other Microsoft products such as SQL Server 2000 and Internet Explorer.

As an example of why this book is so wonderful, there have been several situations where I needed to do something in XSLT that just didn't seem practical (maybe not even doable). The section on how to use standard .NET languages such as C# from XSLT is itself worth the price of admission.

Keep in mind that readers are expected to have a good grasp of XML; the book is a .NET book.
