A wonderful book!

I thought of myself as an Excel "expert" until I happened to come across this book at the bookstore. Imagine my surprise as I randomly flipped through the pages and found something new to me on every few pages. I ordered this book off Amazon and quickly read it from cover to cover. This is the most clearly written computer book I have ever read. If you enjoy working with spreadsheets, you will love this book. After reading this book, you will truly be an Excel "expert".

A Perfect Resource

This book again shows what is important about its kind, books that help you use software. The list of contents and index are thorough and complete, helping experienced readers to find a specific subject fast. At the same time someone with less experience can just start at the beginning and work forward chapter by chapter, learning to control WordPerfect a step at a time, increasing productivity with each step.

The way Special Edition Using WordPerfect 12 is written has a very good balance. Every subject has a very readable introduction. The lay-out and formatting of more technical descriptions is clear and easy to follow. At various places interesting and helpful tips are given. Troubleshooting sections help you identify problems before you have them. The examples in each chapter give you several ideas for solutions using WordPerfect. I have given it some thought but I can not think of a better way to present the wealth of information given in this book.

When browsing a book before I buy it I sometimes get the feeling that I know most of it already, you know what I mean? Well, I do not have that with this book! A must have for every WordPerfect user!

Financial Modeling - 2nd Edition

Great intro to financial modeling, excellent text for undergrad finance and MBA students. Learn core financial topics and Excel simultaneously. Takes financial theory and applies it in excel with real "nuts and bolts" applications. Includes a CD with all the speadheets on it which is alone worth the price. No advanced math or statistics needed, although it would help the reader. Perhaps too basic for a student/graduate Ph.D. in Economics/Finance or M.S. in Financial Engineering.

not good

As a professional developer, I was curious and flipped through this booka at a Barnes and Nobles. I normally would not take the time out of my day to write a review, however, I feel this is a waste of money, as most books on game programming.
