This book is comprehensive for Excel beginners from non-STEM major. It also includes instructions for Mac user, which is very useful for students using Mac. The examples and practice problems are largely related to financial and career decision making. This book doesn't have any science or engineering examples nor topics used frequently in scientific data analysis via Excel such as x-y scatter chart, logical functions (AND, OR, NOT), nested IF statement, functions like SUMPRODUCT, IFS, MATCH, INDEX, etc.

Content Accuracy rating: 5

The accuracy of this book is good. But few figures missed the captions and some figures used very small font sizes thus difficult to verify the information.

Relevance/Longevity rating: 5

The title indicates the book for Excel 2019. I suggest the author clarify the relationship between Excel 2019 and Excel 365 to avoid confusion for beginners since Excel 365 also appear in the texts.

Clarity rating: 5

The book is easy to follow.

Consistency rating: 5

The terminology is consistent. But there is an inconsistency in the headings. The assessment activities are called "scored assessment" in some chapters and "chapter scored" in other chapters. I suggest a consistent subheading and maybe a more self-explanatory subheading for the assessment activities.

Modularity rating: 5

The online version is easy to ready, but the pdf version can be improved . Sometimes the font sizes and spacing are not consistent or appealing for readers.

Organization/Structure/Flow rating: 4

Overall, good organization. I would suggest covering absolute reference and relative reference together instead of splitting them. I would also suggest covering all the Print topic together instead of splitting into different chapters. Even though your current logic of splitting them makes sense, it makes the "Print" and "Cell reference" topics less easier to be used as independent subunits. The subheadings "Printing" and "Preparing to Print" are not self-explanatory before reading the content.

Interface rating: 4

In the pdf version, font sizes of some figures are too small and the figure styles are not very consistent.

Grammatical Errors rating: 5

I did not found any grammatical errors.

Cultural Relevance rating: 5

I didn't find anything relevant to this topic.

This is a good book for Excel beginners, particularly suitable for teaching Excel in a general elective course or business major. It would be better to have more practice and assessment problems in each chapter to for instructors to assign them as homework or self-practice activities.

The book is clear and really easy to understand.

The book is highly accurate, I teach excel in my classes and I will be replacing the current book with this one.

Even though the book is made for excel 2019 It is still highly relevant since excel doesn't change a lot with the years, maybe a few thinks have changed since 2019 but it is still 99% relevant.

The book is clear, concise and detailed.

It is consistent, it maintains its quality through the chapters.

The book is divided into clear and short modules that provide a really clear workflow

Organization/Structure/Flow rating: 5

Well organized, the chapters are arranged in a way that helps the reader learn in a systematic manner.

Interface rating: 5

The interface is presented in an organized and appealing way. Charts and images are properly labeled.

The text does not contain grammatical errors. Paragraphs are coherent.

The text is not culturally insensitive or offensive in any way.

The book is for Beginners on Excel however will have appreciated if some of the BI tools used commonly at workplaces was covered in the book such as PivotTable. In addition there is no index nor glossary , or teacher's guide though it can be understandable since it is a practical course that involves step-by-step process

Yes content is accurate, mostly error-free and unbiased

Relevance/Longevity rating: 4

Content is relevant and easy to read and implement; basic and fundamental for Excel beginners. Again, in today's business landscape...some BI tools fundamentals in Excel should have been added in the book.

Text is simple, concise and easy to understand for Excel beginners

Consistency is maintained throughout the material. I will employ some of the content in my course content but because some BI are missing I will have to combine this material with another.

The text is sectioned in build-up contents for learning experience. Such a way that the learner builds on graduated blocks of practical exercises on Excel to mastery of the various components of the Excel as the learning progresses

Very logical, clear manner of presentation. I like that the difference between Excel for Mac and Windows were incorporated in the material allowing the student to learn along with either of the tool he or she possesses

Interface is user friendly and easy to navigate

No seen grammatical error

No cultural offensive content observed

I like the book, its simplicity of content as well as the fact that the author took cognizance of the variation between Excel in differnt operating systems. This enables the user to adapt learning to the PC of use, allowing learning across board for all. Some other books stuck to the Excel for Windows without adapting the learning process for MAC users. So this is a plus for this material. Absent the relevant BI tool fundamental in the book, it is a good work from the author

The textbook is comprehensive enough for learners who are learning Excel for the first time, just as the textbook is intended to be. The pictures along the way are a big plus for self- learners and students. The students however need to be reminded that as the version of Excel changes, the pictures of actual pulldown menus or tabs might look different. But, that is common with any textbook that deals with a software tool.

The book's accuracy is good. Some places where Pivot Tables are explained need some work.

It is highly relevant, as Excel is highly multi-disciplinary and the content of this textbook addresses the many facets of application areas with their examples.

It is definitely clear with the pictures and transitions explained clearly in supporting text. A downloadable data set provided with this text with additional examples for exploration beyond the references to the textbook examples would have made it more clear. Also, another improvement suggestion is to add a few points on the pre-requisite knowledge required to read a particular chapter , outcomes from the chapter and suggestions on post-chapter topics for continuity would also improve clarity of flow.

It is definitely consistent as the first chapter flows into the successive ones very consistently with the same kind of explanation aids- Figures, Textual guidance and Pictures of the excel sheet.

The textbook is modular. Some feedback comments in the clarity section might also help with increasing Modularity.

Perfectly arranged!

I do not see any Interface issues. Version adaptability is always expected from readers.

Do not see any errors.

It can be made culturally more inclusive by tuning the examples.

Great recommendation to my students and I highly recommend this to any faculty member looking for an OER textbook for an introductory Excel course.

The concepts covered range from beginner to intermediate and are appropriate for undergraduate coursework. However, the online version does not have an index or glossary, both of which would be helpful for a learner who may be unfamiliar with the terms used in the text. Although there is a search function that acts like an index, it does not take the student directly to the reference (it goes to the top of the section).

Chapters 5 and 6 had a few errors that I suspect happened when updating to Excel 2019. In chapter 5, the screenshots for the pivot table don’t match the correct values while in progress, although the final screenshot does show the correct totals. Also, in chapter 5 the reader is told to place an image in the upper left corner, but the correct screenshot in the text is in the upper right corner. In chapter 6, the text gave some check figures that did not tie out with the totals from the data given. Since the data file for chapter 6 was called ‘Data File-New,’ the check totals likely did not get updated when a new data file was created. None of these would keep me from using this book, but I would point them out to students to decrease their frustration level.

This text will likely need to be continually updated as new versions of Excel are released. However, it appears the authors are doing a great job of continually updating.

Clarity rating: 4

In general, the instructions are clear and straight-forward. There were a few times that extra explanation would have been helpful. For example, the text didn’t explain what TRUE and FALSE means in VLOOKUP instructions until Chapter 5. Before that, the reader was simply told to use one or the other without an explanation. There were several instances in which instructions didn’t match with given data sets and/or screenshots. For example, the reader was asked to update a chart with a title that did not yet exist, and several screenshots included formatting and modified chart elements that weren’t explained. When asked to remove duplicates from a table, the instructions given did not produce the expected result. I had to use a different method to remove the duplicates, so I believe there was an instruction missing.

The text is very consistent in terminology. The textbook is not consistent about using the same method to complete a task. For example, at least four ways to create a footer are introduced. This is ideal, as awareness of multiple methods is important in finding ways to complete unfamiliar tasks.

This could be easily split up into smaller modules and taught in a different order. As other reviewers have noted, modularity is somewhat decreased because many of the skills taught scaffold on each other. In a future version, perhaps including prerequisite skills at the start of each chapter or section might assist with modularity.

I consider the content in chapter 6 to be introductory, so I would include it earlier in the book. However, this is a personal preference.

The table of contents is easy to navigate and the data sets are located within the text exactly when needed.

No grammatical errors noted.

No insensitive/offensive examples noted. Data sets often included names from many ethnicities and backgrounds.

I'm very happy with the quality and organization of the book. Some of my comments are probably pretty nit-picky, but I tried to do this as a student without much Excel experience. I've been the frustrated student trying to self-study before, so I empathize! I plan to incorporate this content into my classes.

The text is a good, comprehensive review of beginning Excel features, including fundamentals, math, formulas, functions, logical and lookup functions, charts, tables, and working with multiple worksheets. The book contains instructions for Windows and Mac users.

Content Accuracy rating: 4

The book incorporates images from Excel 2016 /2019. The icons have been updated in Office 365, so the instructor should keep that in mind as it will appear slightly different for students using Office 365.

The material is up-to-date and the problems are timeless and relevant to students. As noted earlier, the icons used in illustrations match Excel 2016/2019. They are basically in the same locations as Office 365, but they may appear different to the students.

I found the text to be straight-forward and clear, and the instructions were precise and accurate. The reading level is appropriate for high school or post-secondary students.

The chapters follow a consistent format and are easy to follow. Instructions are presented for both Windows and Mac users without feeling too bulky.

Chapters are further subdivided into sections which are easy to follow and allow for multiple starting and stopping points. The material is organized with all relevant content contained in a section, without the need to refer to other parts of the book.

The text follows a logical and direct pathway, with appropriate material grouped together. The earliest chapters explain the ribbon tasks from left to right, and offers tips on all functions.

The text is not overloaded with excess material--it presents information in a direct manner, without excess data to confuse the lessons.

No grammatical errors were detected.

No culturally insensitive or offensive material were evident. The student and employee names could have been more diverse.

This would be a good text for students with no Excel experience. It is easy to follow and filled with appropriate activities for gaining knowledge and skills in beginning Excel.

This book is a fairly comprehensive overview of Excel for beginning students. I would like to see an expansion of the functions and formulas to include a few more commonly used functions and formulas. It would also be helpful to include a chapter on how Excel is used for reporting in the workplace and how to create a dashboard using the charts in Excel.

The step-by-step procedures for using Excel and the practice labs at the end of the chapter were highly accurate. I used this text in my course with thirty students, and usually students discover quite a few errors that I've missed in textbooks. This was not the case with Beginning Excel, however. No students reported errors, which was amazing.

The authors have clearly made an effort to update this textbook to keep is relevant as new releases of Excel occur. Software textbooks are challenging to keep relevant, and the authors have done an excellent job of revising this textbook for the new version of Excel 2019.

This textbook describes how to use Excel in a very readable style. The chapters are short and to-the-point. This book is free of the unnecessary fluff that pads a lot of the expensive textbooks on Microsoft Office. The technical terminology used is appropriate for beginning students.

The book is highly consistent in terms of how the Excel terminology is used. The framework is consistent throughout the book. For example, a small icon is used throughout the book to indicate special steps for Mac users. The Excel screenshots are presented in a consistent manner which makes it easier to complete the labs.

The text is well-organized into smaller modules to make it easier for students to digest. The blocks of text are concise, clearly labeled, and illustrated with screenshots from Excel to help students understand the concepts described in the text.

The topics in the textbook are presented in a logical fashion within the chapters. I would recommend covering workbooks with multiple worksheets earlier in the text than the final chapter, since this topic is easier than pivot tables, formulas, and functions, which are covered early in the book. However, since this book is an eBook, I found it easier to assign chapters "out-of-order" for my students since I could include links to the chapters in the course schedule.

The interface for the textbook works well, and seems to be completely free of navigation issues. The Table of Contents on the left side of the screen contains convenient links to the chapters and sub-chapters, making it easy to navigate the textbook.

I did not find an grammatical errors in this textbook. Overall, the book seems to be proofread thoroughly and free of any significant typos. This is important for a software textbook, since small mistakes in the labs can make it difficult for students to complete their work.

There was nothing in the textbook that seemed culturally insensitive or offensive. Since it is a software-based book, there isn't a discussion of social issues, such as race or ethnicity, in this textbook. The spreadsheets that are provided use real-life data examples that students from a variety of backgrounds may find familiar, like calculating a monthly budget or a car payment.

I used this textbook to provide review material for students in a beginning data analytics course, so that they could brush up their Excel skills prior to attempting more challenging data analysis assignments. The book worked very well in that context. Students had positive feedback about this textbook and appreciated being able to access the textbook for free.

The text covers to each topic thoroughly and with tips for PC and Mac users. The glossary is helpful for getting to specific content quickly. Each chapter builds on the prior chapter, providing an excellent sequence for learning the program. This book is a good resource for anyone who is new to using Excel as well as for those who need a refresher.

To the best of knowledge, the book is accurate and unbiased.

The only reason to give this book a 4 rating in relevance has nothing to do with the content but more with the changes that occur as programs are updated. This is always a problem when teaching software programs. Although Excel has not change significantly over the years this is a 2019 version that will need to be updated as the program is updated.

The authors have done a great job of using text and screen capture to add clarity and provide accurate information. I appreciate this style of guidance and so do my students. This is as close to using a video tutorial as you can get with a text book. The only jargon used in the text is that which is directly related to the program and this is carefully explained at each occurance

Very consistent layout from chapter to chapter. The terminology is also consistent, as far as I could tell from the overview I completed.

The modules are easy to follow and are in a sensible order for the learner. Each chapter has good written descriptions augmented with screen captures that provide scaffolding of skills as the learner goes from one chapter to the next. It will be an excellent resource for any course that requires the use of Excel since each chapter can basically stand alone.

The book is organized in a logical order. The text is easy to read, clear and concise, and uses screen captures to illustrate the skills being introduced. The combination of text and illustration allow for easy searching for specific commands or functions.

I found no issues with the navigation, or distortion of images and charts. There are no distracting images or text that would cause confusion for the reader.

I found no grammatical errors.

The text is not culturally insensitive, however this not the type of text that offers any opinion or views on inclusion.

This text will be an excellent resource for many different disciplines. The construction technology program requires an estimating course for which this text will be very beneficial to beginning students who will need to use excel. Thank you for making this an open resource. I know the students will be grateful for the guidance, and for not having to spend additional funding on yet another textbook.

This textbook covers basic Excel topics relevant for an introductory spreadsheet course. It is well produced. It is designed for students freshly exposed to excel/spreadsheets or needing a review. It can also be incorporated as a reference book in Statistics courses. The six chapters cover the basics of Excel necessary for a student pursuing a Bachelor's degree or for professionals needing to refresh their skills. A table of contents lays out the topics clearly. Definitions and summaries are included in each chapter where relevant. No glossary is present but it does not impact the value or relevance of the book.

The book covers the different topics accurately and concisely. It is cleanly written with no fillers.

This book is still relevant. Even though it references Excel 2016 however, the functionalities are similar in different versions of Excel. If any updates are needed later, they would be easy to incorporate or add. Probably, chapter practices or assessments can be updated after few years or some alternative ones included.

All content is clear and easy to follow and read. Any jargon used is defined and simplified for the readers with visual aids as applicable.

The framework is consistent as well as the design and terminology used.

The textbook cab be easily broken down into smaller topics that can be incorporated into an introductory Excel course or a Statistics Course. It is clearly labeled with the text flowing easily. The Instructor can reorganize the units to fit into their course and subject.

This book is well organized. It starts with an introductory overview chapter, then covers formulas, functions, charts, and tables in subsequent chapters. Each chapter starts with well defined learning objectives, then covers each topic in specific sections with examples and step-by-step tutorials. Shortcuts definitions and instructions are provided within each chapter in the relevant section. Multiple data files are offered for homework/practice. Each chapter ends with a practice exercise and a scored assessment.

The interface is free from errors. Charts, graphs, and tutorials are clear, readable and understandable. The book can benefit from an automatic Table of Contents to facilitate reading and switching between different chapters and sections, instead of scrolling or looking for a page number. However, this is a minor issue.

The book is free from grammatical errors. The style is sharp and clean. It is easy to read and understand. Terminology used is defined in plain English.

The book is culturally relevant. No insensitive content was found within. Examples provided are universal and in no way offensive.

The data files provided are an excellent companion for a hands-on introductory course. While time-saving, they provide well prepared material for in-class use.

This book is comprehensive and well-organized with detailed explanations and screenshots. Learning Objectives at the beginning of each section helps readers understand the key topics of the section, and useful tips are additionally provided in each chapter through Integrity Check, Skill Refreshers, and Key Takeaways. Practice exercises at the end of each chapter are well presented with datasets, leading students to check their understanding and review what they learned. All chapters are connected smoothly so that students happen to acquire solid knowledge by the time they finish reading the book. Also, it describes functional differences between different Excel versions, which is very useful for beginners. Overall, this book is recommended for beginner excel classes or students who want to learn Excel without taking classes.

The content is accurate. I have not found any errors throughout the book.

The book is based on Excel 2016, but the content is still applicable to a newer version (Excel 2019). I have not found any issues reviewing this book with a slightly older or newer version of Excel. This book also contains helpful explanations on differences between different versions. However, charts and datasets need to be updated with recent dates and figures.

All examples and explanations are clear and easy to follow.

The content is consistent within and across the chapters. Concepts and applications are clearly explained step by step. All related topics are well organized under the same umbrella.

The book categorizes basic concepts and their practical applications independently as well as organically. All chapters and sections flow well, so students do not need to waste time going back and forth unnecessarily.

Again, the book is well-organized and reads well. Even students who have not been exposed to Excel before can easily learn it with this book.

I have not found any interface issues. The text and figures are presented neatly.

No grammatical errors were found.

I have not found any cultural sensitivity issues in this book.

Overall, this is a well-structured excel book for beginners. Although the book introduces all useful shortcuts throughout, a summary table containing all the shortcuts will be beneficial for students and instructors who do not want to read back and forth when looking up a specific key. Also, there are several alternative ways of completing a task in Excel. For example, I can calculate the sum of a and b by typing “=a+b” or using the sum function. If the book enumerates these alternative ways for a certain goal and further explains differences among the approaches if any, it will enhance readers’ ability to use different approaches flexibly. The inclusion of a glossary will give readers easy access to specific terms.

This book covers the ins and outs that all but the most advanced users of Excel will need. For a fairly succinct text, it establishes a sound foundational knowledge of the program, including formulas, formatting, conditional formatting, and shortcuts. All of this information is structured such that a new user could conceivably be making conditionally-formatted charts with ease and confidence by the time they are done with the book.

The content was accurate and error-free as best as I can tell.

This text is written for users of Excel 2016, but a newer edition (Excel 2019) has come out since its publication. However, because the design of the program and the core functions don't change too much from one edition to the next, I had no trouble following along and completing all of the exercises as written in Excel 2019. It is conceivable that a future iteration of the program may require an update of the pictures demonstrating where various features are located, but otherwise, this text looks to be relevant for a good long while.

The prose is clear throughout and uses appropriate terminology without being overly jargon-y. The procedures included in the text are both written as step-by-step instructions and demonstrated with well-labeled pictures. The clarity of the text is akin to having a knowledgable and amiable Excel user sitting next to you and helping you figure it out.

Terminology, formatting, and even chapter structure are consistent throughout.

Each chapter is a clearly delineated and sequentially structured topic unto itself, and each is then subdivided into sections that explain and demonstrate concepts relevant to the chapter topic. In the case of these longer sections, they are themselves subdivided so that one could easily pluck a particular function of the program out to share with students and the students would not feel as though they were missing out.

The topics in the text are presented in a logical, clear fashion that uses previous concepts to build up to new ones. Rather than a reference text, this is built as a teaching text which will build a skill.

The text does not seem to have any interface issues. Navigation is a snap, images rendered well on both a laptop and a phone, and the display is clean and easy to read.

There are no evident grammatical errors.

One would not think that a book on using Excel would be a prime example of cultural sensitivity, but the example names and businesses used throughout reflect a wide array of cultural backgrounds. It is a low-key thing to include, but it is a very important inclusion.

This is an incredibly thorough and well-structured book that can take a new user from 0 to 60 by the end. This would be a great addition to any intro-level finance, accounting, or management survey class so that students have a strong base level of familiarity with Excel before starting in classes for which it is a necessity. Highly recommended!

This book is very comprehensive for all MS Excel basics. It covers basic formatting, formulas, conditional formatting, PivotTables, and even shortcuts. I have used MS Excel and taught MS Excel for over 20 years. This book covers all basics I would cover in a first and second semester MS Excel course.

All the text appeared accurate but I was unable to check data files and data file names. Some images are unable to be viewed clearly in the book. It is not crucial to the text but impossible to verify accuracy.

This book focuses on MS Excel 2016. It was written in 2017. Currently MS Excel 2019 is available, soon to be something even newer. MS Excel does not change that much year to year so this book is still fairly relevant. It will not be relevant in 5 years but for now it is still well worth utilizing. This is at no fault to the publishers of this book - no books written on an always updating software can be 100% relevant and up-to-date.

The book is quite clear and easy to navigate. Chapters are well defined with terms, figures, and important terms are clearly marked and bold. By the nature of the book it can be somewhat unclear navigating between text and the actual software on a computer but again that is at no fault to the textbook.

The textbook uses the exact same format and terminology definitions throughout. The figures and directions are consistent throughout each chapter. The assignments and tasks are clearly numbered for each chapter. Very easy to follow throughout the textbook.

The text flows easily from chapter to chapter and from section to section in each chapter. The textbook uses scaffolding to build the student's knowledge and skill set from each chapter to chapter and each section to section within each chapter. Many other texts jump too quickly into advanced MS Excel tasks without building a knowledge base. This textbook scaffolds skills at an appropriate pace for a beginner.

The text is organized easily from chapter to chapter and from section to section in each chapter. The textbook uses scaffolding to build the student's knowledge and skill set from each chapter to chapter and each section to section within each chapter. This textbook is well organized for a beginner working through the entire book. It lacks the ability to easily focus on one particular skill. The table of contents does not fully designate all that each chapter covers. This may be difficult to locate a particular skill or task, i.e. PivotTable, without using the appendix to find multiple entries.

Interface rating: 3

The text is perfectly clear and easy to read. Some images are blurred or too dark to see exactly what the student should have on their MS Excel spreadsheet. This contains many charts, graphs, and images. The issue pertains to approximately 10% of the images.

There are no apparent grammatical errors. Multiple images, figures, and charts use abbreviations.

Cultural references do not apply to this textbook on MS Excel. The examples used in the text appear to be from a wide range of gender, race, and ethnicity.

This is a very thorough and comprehensive textbook for beginning MS Excel. The book is easy to follow and scaffolds skills at an appropriate pace for a beginner. The only downside to the book is the quickly dated material. This is the case with all textbooks pertaining to software. I would see no issues using this text for a first and second semester MS Excel course. Unfortunately I could not review the data files for content, clarity or accuracy.

Relevance/Longevity rating: 3

Microsoft Excel updates on a trend every three years. It usually takes most businesses/schools a few years before they fully adapt to a newer version. This will stay updated for a two years at least, depending on how different the newer version is.

The books purpose is to introduce Microsoft Excel to a first-time user. Students can learn Microsoft Excel from the learn guide with the program, but this text teaches Excel with its most common practical uses. It expands more on each application or function it reviews within its section.

The book uses consistent language that makes it easy to follow.

This is actually one of the only pieces of work I have been able to find where it teaches Microsoft Excel 2016, that makes it easy to divide into sections. A lot of work out there has each assignment build up slowly for at least 10 or more pages. This keeps assignments clear and concise but also using different skills.

The ideal method of any work written for Microsoft Excel 2016 is that it slowly introduces every basic functionality of uses. The text does a nice job of moving through a little quicker to get to the practicality of using the functions.

The visuals are useful in the work, since it can show where to go from time to time. I did have issues scrolling through and having pages go blank. I would have to re-scroll multiple times back and forth to get the page to show up. The pictures when they showed did a nice job of showing exactly where you need to go to understand how to do a certain function.

I did not find any grammatical errors in the book.

There is no culturally insensitive or offensive material in this book. The book is written well to translate.

The book is fairly comprehensive for a beginning book. I would not expect it to cover much more. The table of contents clearly describes the topics covered in each chapter.

The book seems accurate. I did not see any issues.

The version of excel is a bit dated and the text focuses on the Windows version of excel. I was still able to work through most of the examples and the information presented is not really version specific, so most of the information should be alright

The book was easy to follow. Things were well explained and the authors provided breakout boxes and screen shots to help the reader follow.

The terminology was consistent and each chapter followed a consistent pattern.

Modularity rating: 4

The text flows easily from section to section. Many of the sections could be assigned independent of the others, however, due to the nature of the material, you will need to understand the beginning chapters before tackling the later chapters.

The text was organized in a logical manner that was easy to follow.

I did not have any difficulties navigating the text. The screenshots were helpful and rendered fine.

I did not find grammatical errors.

There was nothing offensive. Cultural sensitivity is not really relevant.

I think the book would be useful for an introductory class in Excel or for a supplement in a class using Excel. I liked the fact that each of the chapters provided data for the students to follow along with the exercises and had summary practice exercises for students.

This reviewer’s interest in this text is as a detailed self-paced supplement for students studying business and finance. All of the Excel topics related to those studies are included in a sequence and format that would allow students to review established skills and learn new skills using a split computer screen and a learn by example mode. The detailed hyperlinked Table of Contents was more than adequate for finding search topics.

There are too many versions of Excel in daily use to expect a single book to be completely accurate with items such as screen shots and still be practical. The various versions, however, are close enough to each other to allow a student to pick up the necessary skills while accommodating to whichever version of Excel is available. Otherwise, this text is an accurate tutorial for expanding a student’s skill set.

This text is highly relevant to the computational requirements of the business and finance courses of interest to this reviewer. Recent press releases imply that future versions of Excel might be of even greater use. Longevity is another matter. The continual updating of Excel within and between platforms will make this text too outdated in a few years unless periodic updating is maintained.

This text is sufficiently clear by style and detailed content to allow students to master Excel on their own. This is particularly important to students who need to upgrade their Excel skill set in parallel with handling coursework for which Excel is a necessary support.

The nature of the topic imposes a high degree of consistency. The clear, detailed format used for skill building accommodates to the inherent consistency of the subject matter in a useful manner that supports strong self-learning.

Modularity, in terms of self-standing sections and subsections, is limited by the need to learn various sub-skills in sequence. Introductory material needs to be mastered before more advanced topics can be addressed. The result is that early chapters need to be studies in sequence, but later chapters can be rearranged or skipped depending on the needs of the supported course.

The book’s organization follows the logical sequence of skill building in Excel. Therefore, an individual learner should start at the front and work to the back spending time and effort in inverse proportion to existing Excel skill levels. This reviewer tested this strategy and was pleased with the results.

User interface for the reviewed version of this text appears to depend on the user’s computer (Mac or PC), on which version of Excel is available, and on which format is selected for reading the book. This reviewer used the online format rather than the pdf format on a 2008 iMac, for example, because the links to data files worked with the online format but not with the pdf format. Other than that, the user interface for both formats were free of distortions and distractions. This would facilitate using a split screen on which both the text and example exercises could be displayed together. This is a particularly effective method for Excel skill building. Using dual screens is even better.

No spelling or grammar errors were recognized by this reviewer.

This textbook is cultural neutral.

It would be convenient to mention somewhere in the early sections that Mac users might want to set a keyboard preference for using function keys as standard function keys so many of the shortcuts such as stipulating absolute references are easy to do. It might also be helpful to mention that most of the text’s material applies to other popular spreadsheet programs including recent versions of Excel for the Mac, OpenOffice, LibreOffice, and Google Sheets, recognizing that differences in screen layout and maybe the availability of some formulas and commands might require a small degree of translation from one application to another by the learner. This reviewer will likely recommend this text to future classes as a convenient Excel review tool.

This is an extremely comprehensive book that provides a significant level of detail guiding the user from the very introductory stages of how to use the software program through more advanced applications. I was particularly appreciative of the level of specific detail that the author used in describing even the most basic of steps. One of the biggest complaints that I've heard from students who use technology textbooks is that authors sometimes assume that students know more than they actually do. This author is clearly not neglected the basics and no minor detail has been left out.

I also particularly like that the author has made the program relevant to a variety of different types of users. This description of Excel is pertinent for students of business who will be using this type of program in their careers but it is also pertinent to students from other majors in that it includes examples such as how to manage personal financial scenarios. Thus, the reach of this textbook goes far beyond just business students.

I was a little disappointed that this book does not include a table of contents nor does it include a glossary. While hyperlinks are included within each chapter that refer the student to other chapters, having a table of contents would help students not only see the broad picture of what the text actually covers but would also provide the opportunity for students to be able to easily access sections that they need to improve on such as in the case where there using the textbook as a reference source.

It is also worthy to note that the book provides a significant number of graphics that actually show students where to click how to click and where certain components are found in the program as well as providing step-by-step instructions on how to perform various steps. The graphics are substantial and frequent and really adds a significant extra dimension to the coverage.

The textbook appears to be very accurate in that the directions provided in each of the assignments appear to be. I can only imagine how much of a challenge that must be given each new edition of the software program. I also found no evidence of any bias although it is difficult to infuse bias into a software manual.

The content in this book is very current and certainly relevant but as I mentioned in the previous section I would hope the author would be able to update as new additions or versions of the software are developed. Much of the material or the processes covered in the book are fairly standard and I believe will not become obsolete at least not in the near future. Generally with the development of new Microsoft programs, minor changes such as the location of the tab or other tool or the addition of minor functionalities seem to be about the norm. I don't suspect it would be very difficult than to update this textbook to reflect those minor changes. The exception, of course, would be if a completely revamped version of the program was developed. I think back to the rollout of Microsoft Vista and how different Vista was from previous operating systems. While most will agree that Vista was not a good product, much of the consternation resulted from the drastic differences that existed with the new rollout.

Again, spreadsheet software, whether it be Excel or a Google worksheet generally maintain standard functionalities so updating a book such as this should be terribly difficult.

I think this book is extremely clear and how it is written and in how the material is laid out. There is an appropriate blend of text, listed instructions and graphics along with appropriate hyperlinks that allow for ease of navigation within the document. I think this is certainly appropriate for an online text book and I think most students would find this to be very user-friendly. Again, as I mentioned in my original narrative beginning of this assessment, one of the things I particularly like about this book is that it is written in a simple and easily understandable or met such that even the most novice of computer users could follow along and master the skills and concepts covered. I think this is a real competitive advantage with this book whether it is being used as a textbook as part of a formal class or if it was being used as a textbook to serve as reference material. Again, adding a table of contents and a glossary and/or Index at the end would make the book complete.

This textbook seems very consistent in how it's formatted and it is difficult to see any variations in either chapter layout, writing style or level of detail from the beginning to the end. The terminology is extremely basic and clear which again makes this textbook ideal for both the novice or the more advanced learner to use as a reference source. I also particularly like the starter files and the links used to access the starter files really blending the chapter material to actual worksheets.

This is a particularly important formatting issue for me because I understand that many students don't necessarily read a textbook from page 1 to the end and given that this textbook has 407 pages I find it highly likely they would do so here. For example, in section 4.41 could easily understand that this section is about using charts or integrating charts with Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint and it is not imperative that one have just finished reading the previous section to be able to refer to the section and very quickly learn how to use charts in this format. Again, that makes the reference capability of this textbook extremely important.

The organizational flow of this textbook is appropriate, especially for an entry-level textbook. It begins with the most basic elements of using Microsoft Excel such as how to open the program or even where to find the program in the start menu. You may be surprised to find the number of students who, when setting down to a computer for the first time, cannot figure out how to open a Microsoft program unless that program specifically has an icon on the desktop. This author starts the very basics in getting students to be able to understand how to even get the program open where to look for it. The text then, at an appropriate pace, develops the students understanding of Excel in a very thorough yet realistic manner. There is little doubt that, again based on the organizational structure of the book, beginning students who have no experience with Excel and maybe even feel very uncomfortable with computers in general, will find the pace appropriate for any level of expertise.

I found no navigational problems. The links, more specifically the hyperlinks, seem to work appropriately and all of the Excel links were present.

Cultural Relevance rating: 3

It's really difficult to answer this in terms of cultural relevance technology textbook that is being used to develop the skill set so there is very little cultural relevance that should be evaluated.

In summary, I find this book to be an excellent tool that can be used in either classroom or in a reference setting. When I was trying to decide on which book to review, this book stood out because, at least initially, I noticed the graphics and I noticed a very clear sustained how to format of the chapter sections. It is highly likely that I would use this book in future classes.

This textbook is very well-written. It is comprehensive and covers a wide spectrum of important spreadsheet software topics.

The text does a good job explaining spreadsheet software. On the other hand, it uses EXCEL 2010, an older version of EXCEL as we are currently using EXCEL 2016 (as of this writing). This is a typical problem with technical textbooks as technology evolves quickly.

The textbook provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental skills of Excel, including mathematical computations, logical and lookup computations and presenting data with charts. The scope and sequence of the material is sufficiently detailed and logically organized. The step-by-step instructions are clearly written and easy to follow. The content includes screenshot examples and skill refresher and lesson videos which add value to the overall comprehensiveness of the content. The textbook does not cover working with tables which is a required components of our curriculum. There isn’t a glossary or index in the textbook.

The textbook content is accurate, error free and unbiased.

The textbook uses Windows 7 and Excel 2010 which are not the current versions of either, so modifications would be necessary for some sections of the text. With some modifications along with additional supplemental materials, students could complete the chapters and assignments from this text regardless of the version of Windows or Excel being used.

The text is written in clear, understandable language. Terminology is further clarified through the use of screen shots and in many of the skill refresher and lesson videos

The textbook is consistent in terms of both terminology and framework. Each chapter begins with detailed learning objectives followed by an introduction of the chapter content. Each chapter is embedded with guided practice exercises, ‘Integrity Checks’ which are tips to help students avoid and recognize errors, ‘Key Takeaways,’ which summarize the key components of the lesson, ‘Skill Refresher’ videos which quickly demonstrate smaller components within the lesson, and ‘Video Lessons’ (chapter lecture/demonstrations). Section exercises are included which provide multiple choice questions so students can check their understanding of the content as they progress through the chapter, and end of chapter assignments ranging from easy to difficult are provided so students can apply the skills learned. Hands on chapter tests are also included for each chapter.

The text is divided into smaller reading sections within each chapter which could easily be pulled out and used independently.

Each chapter is built around skills which are presented in a logical and clear order. The topics introduced build on each other moving the student from simple understanding to complex application of the skills being taught.

The text is free from any significant interface issues. The text and images are clear and easy to read. Images are appropriately labeled.

I did not find any grammatical errors in the text.

The text is not culturally insensitive or offensive in any way. The content is based on business/personal business examples that are culturally unbiased.

While requiring some updating, this text covers most of the bases for a beginning Excel class. Due to the abundant use of screen shots and video components, the text may need to be evaluated for accessibility in order to accommodate students who require educational accommodations.

Learning objectives are provided for each section. Review questions are available. Chapter review assignments and chapter tests are provided for evaluation. Comprehensive coverage of the material is provided, but a glossary/index are not. Material ranges from basic to advanced skills which build throughout the text.

The content is straightforward and without bias or opinion. A high number of instructional graphics are provided with clear indication of relevance. Screenshots provide visual reference to display direction to the student as the student completes the instructional steps.

The textbook refers to Windows 7 (currently 2 versions behind - Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10) and Excel 2010 (currently 2 versions behind - Excel 2013 and Excel 2016). Also, many students are now using Office 365 which not only provides cloud service for the software and files, but automatically updates the software to current versions without student effort.

The verbiage used in this text is on par with the technical data provided. The jargon and technical terminology used are vital to the learning the material. However, the instructions are clear and easy to understand. Terms are linked to provide further explanation.

The correct terms are used to describe actions and Excel functions. Steps are clearly relayed and easy to follow. The procedure for completing lessons is consistent throughout the text providing a framework for students to follow and understand.

Lessons are broke into small sections reviewing a specific skill. Students are able to complete the task before moving on. The text has the ability to be separated into sections. Each lesson starts with a new document file as if the student had completed the previous section. Students are able to use either their own file or the one provided. This also provides a checkpoint for the student to compare their work with the data file provided.

Topics are presented in a form that builds based upon the assumed knowledge of the learner. The lessons begin in a simple format with short, precise direction and basic terms. As the chapters progress, assignments become longer and more complex, building on the previous learning. The tasks become more complicated and complex to display a higher level of learning.

The pages are clear and easy to read. The graphics are displayed well with limited use of colors and extraneous material. Each graphic is clickable to display a larger, higher definition display. Pages are uncluttered and easy to scroll through. Printing may be an issue due to the high use of graphics and shading of text. A clickable link to just the assignment directions for printing would be useful for students to complete more complex assignments without the need to "click" back and forth.

Grammatical Errors rating: 4

The grammar used is easy to understand and accurate. There are various typing errors that do not detract from the meaning of the lesson presented. Sentence structure is at an appropriate level for a college freshman course.

There are few instances of cultural relevance. The lack of cultural integration in the text does not detract from the skills performed by the student. The context is data driven and does not provided opportunity for a great deal of cultural integration.

The entertainment value of the material is fair to low. The directions are simple and easy to follow, but lack a degree of interest. Completing the material for long periods at a time could lead to a lack of focus on the part of the student. The comprehensive nature of the text compensates for this issues and would interest the motivated student.

The skills covered in the text are very comprehensive including a lot of screen prints. Unfortunately, we teach tables and working with multiple sheets/files in our Beginning Excel class, and these topics are not included.

I have not found any errors in the text. The directions are accurate and error-free.

My concern with the text is that it is written for Excel 2010, and we are already teaching Excel 2013. At first, I thought this was a major drawback; but I worked through parts of the book in Excel 2013, and it worked fine. The only chapter that would not work in it's entirety is the charts chapter since charts changed significantly in 2013. Thinking about it some more, I think we could possibly teach the basics of charts with the chapter and then use other materials to teach the specific features of charts in 2013.

I plan on testing the book with Excel 2016 which I just installed on my laptop. If most of the text will work with this new version, that would mean the book is largely "version-free", and that's what we're looking for!

I think the text is written is accessible language for students. It has a good deal of business concepts in chapters 2 and 3, but they are explained well. The videos that accompany the book are very easy to understand and the technical language is not overdone.

I really like the framework of the text. Every section has Learning Objectives, Skill Refreshers, Key Takeaways, and Multiple Choice Exercises at the end of each section. At the end of each chapter, there are three levels of skills review and a Level 2 test.

The modularity of the text was good. I felt we could take portions of the text and use them without having to use a whole chapter or the whole text. The videos, exercises, and tests could also be pulled out and use as stand alone resources which is a big plus in computer classes.

As stated in question 5, the consistent layout of each section and chapter made the text flow logically.

The video and data file links did not work in the current copy of the book in This would need to be fixed in order for the book to be useable in our classes.

The screen prints were clear and easily read.

The examples in the book were business-oriented vs. people-oriented, so they were not culturally insensitive or offensive in any way.

It teaches Fundamental Skills, Mathematical Computations, Logical and Lookup Functions, and Presenting Data with Charts in a step-by step fashion and to a detailed level. This level of skill would be appropriate for professional or highly proficient personal use. It covers all menus and functions in detail.

The book is very accurate and this reviewer found no errors.

The book refers and applies to Excel 2010 on the Windows 7 platform exclusively. It does not refer to other versions, platforms, or operating systems. The relevance and longevity depends on the user’s tolerance for interpreting instructions and graphics that may vary slightly from what is on the user’s screen.

The step-by-step instructions are very clear. Most, though not quite all, terms and jargon are explained. The clearly-labeled screenshots help immensely with the clarity.

You can protect cells, worksheets, and workbooks in Excel with a password (or without one). Once a worksheet is protected, you’ll need to enter the password to access it (in case a password has been applied).

Note that Excel in-built security feature is not very strong and you can easily open worksheets/workbooks that have been locked. However, if you want to quickly protect it before sending it to your manager/client (so they don’t end up changing anything by mistake), it works well.

When you record a macro, Excel simply follows whatever you do in the workbook and create a code for it. Now you can run this code and Excel will automatically follow all the steps you showed it.

Hi and thank you for all the content. I had a question regarding the countifs function. I had the quiz question how many times does the number 3 appear between the integers 300-400. I know the answer is 120 after looking into it further I was wondering if there’s a way to get to this answer using countifs, if so how? I thought it would look something like this =countifs(b1:b100, “3**”, b1:b100, “*3*”, b1:b100, “**3”) but clearly have it wrong.

I’m interested to do this course

Want to learn excel

Hi sumit, thanks for giving such wonderful learnings at no cost. Will u please guide me for certification stages in excel and also best link to go for it. I would really appreciate ur response. Thanks in advance

is there a book covering this course? If not what books do you recommend to learn Excel for work?

It’s very useful course. Thank you sir.

Is there any assessment that I need to give after completing the training?

The courses offered and the way these are structured are meant to lay a firm and solid foundation to build upon. Everybody builds their own home on a foundation. When it is a good, properly laid, will make one’s home sitting on a solid foundation.

Mr. SB has taken time, mastered the Excel, excited by its capabilities, organised it and prepared to teach his students in a simple and direct way. With an average enthusiasm to learn, one can learn from these videos and lay a firm and solid foundation to one’s career, using this excellent program called Excel.

Like air we breathe, Sunshine we enjoy, moonlight we adore, his free teachings are GOD’s gift to any body that want learn a new skill.

The organisation, time, effort and passion has to be really appreciated.

I see lot of people asking for a pat in the back ( like looking for a certificate of completion ), this is a SELF-HELP course, and I am not sure I will have as much information given to me even if I attended a PAID COURSE.

And again, since I am learning this on my own to improve MY understanding of spreadsheet program, I can understand and appreciate why some persons want to squeeze a CERTIFICATE out of this as a ticket for a future job.

Mr. Bansal, Pranam to you, as a teacher who put in all this time into these video courses and offering it for free. I bow to you for your kind heart.

Goddess Saraswathi has blessed you, may her blessings be showered upon you into the future, so we all get at least a part of those blessings.

It helps me a lot in better understanding excel, and also motivates me to dive deeper into further learning.

Excellent. Explanation is brilliant.

Thanks very much for tutorials, I like to know if there is a way to make just a cell behave as a normal calculator. i.e this cell should be capable of summing figures that appears in another cell, while keeping last cumulative figure visible. This other cell will be the key-in cell or active cell. Example: Cell 1: =2*5, Answer appears in Cell 2, Cell 1: =3*6.8, Answer is added to the previous value resulting from (2*5) and still appears in cell 2. Kindly share a video if this is possible. Thank you.

Excellent Course. Really useful. Thanks!

I have searched online and came across your youtube video tutorial on how to count color using function and macro module programing in excel. I am traying to count the highlighted cell that contains a specific numbers inside of the cell highlighted in color using your code. Can you help me to verify the changes that I have to make to count and add the cell value instead of adding “TotalCount = TotalCount +1” use “TotalCount = TotalCount + “Cell value”” ? What should I change to add the values inside of the cell instead of 1? Your or anyone’s help is deeply appreciated.

Hey! in lesson4, almost at the start of the video, you select a group of cells and address them together with the help of a colon, and as you type the no. 1, it appears in every cell. when I do the same, it isn’t happening. why?

highlight the cells you want to enter the information in, type the information then press CTRL+Enter

hello, i used your video for the indirect drop downs and it was very helpful. The only problem that I am having is that some of them work and others do not. Is there an easy fix for this?

This is nice I m a engineer so plz teach me only chart, diagram,engineering related video

Thanks for the videos, your method of explanation is very superb. God bless you

As a beginner with Excel, I really enjoy your tutorials and it helps a lot…… thank you Mr Simit, Hope to learn more from you as I go along with more free tutorials.

Truly appreciate the time and effort you put in to this for free! Maybe add a donate button or something so people that want to can show their appreciation with moolah! I haven’t even watched one video yet just had to comment.

Today is Thursday, August 8, 2019 and I used these videos to relearn how to use excel. They were extremely helpful. Even more happy this training was free.

Thank you Summit! (From CT)

You are a miracle. Created vids, summaries for free. More than just an average youtuber. Thank you so much. Greetings from Long Beach CA

Can you please upload a video on mail merge particularly with many-to-one option.

I chanced upon this website and felt the absolute need to thank you for sharing your knowledge.

After successful completion, will you give certificate to show when required?

Thank you so much for this course it is really helping me you are such a good person to do this for us all.

Thank you Sumit for an excellent training course!

Now I have a question, not about your course, but if you coluld solve this problem I would be grateful. Do you know how to get rid of the usernaume in comments? I know I could go via Alternative/Genereral/Microsoft Office/Username etc. but that does not solve the problem. If I put a space instead of my name, or my initials, it still writes “:” in bold character and I want a empty comment when I start writing in it.

I think it must be solved by VBA code? And I don’t know how to write it, so if you know, and if you can help me, I would appreciate that.

I think it is very annoying that I have to delete my name (or initials) in everey new comment I make. Must be a way to get around it?

Kind regards, Leif Norinder

Dear Sumit Bansal, I am really appreciate you concern to teach people without any interest. that is a really surprised me in this current mindset of the people. again thank you for your kindness.

This is so helpful- thank you so much!

Will I be graded/ receive a certificate of completion?

Hello Connie.. Since this is a free training, there is no certificate for completion or grading

I Got Stuck That You Just Told Us IN a Video… Kindly Tell Me How Can I Connect With You For Solution

Thank you Mr Summit. You are the bomb.

Glad you found the training useful!

I really appreciate your time and effort giving an opportunity for those who need this materials, including myself. I believed this free Excel Tutorials will help me a lot to land my home-based job.

Thanks once again and God bless your knowledge and expertise.

This is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Sumit, I like how you have divided the course into different modules and videos. I have done accounting and finance in the past so I feel this is really needed for my growth and career. If I complete all these videos and practice, will I be able to operate basic to intermediate excel ?

Hello Shriya.. Glad you found the course useful. Yes, you would be able to handle basic to intermediate tasks in Excel after watching the videos and going through the practice files.

Thank you Sumit. Also wanted to ask you, I use Macbook so there are few things which are different in Excel in Macbook. If possible can you upload a video where you mention those few differences. For eg. I can’t find a dialogue box in Excel on Mac. Can you help me with that.

Thank you for the great help.

Wonderful! Thank you!

Sounds good to me!!

I want and NEED a good part-time office job but don’t have the computer skills that many jobs require and have liked working with numbers in the past.

Hello Lisa.. Good working knowledge of Excel should definitely help you get a job

You are a fantastic man to offer your services to educate those that need to learn about excel …. for free. How refreshing it is to hear you speak (not too fast, nor too slow) in a manner that is clear and understanding. Thank you most kindly.

Thank you so much for the kind words Fiona.. Happy you found the course useful 🙂

Hi, none of the videos are working… I tried several times in vain

Working alright at my end. You can also watch the course videos here –

Hello Mr. Sumit,

I am unable to find “Developer tab” and “Customizing Ribbon and QAT” options in Excel 2007 . Kindly help me how can I access these options ?

Have a look at this –

Sorry, unable to find the ‘customize the ribbon’ toolbar in 2007 excel. I guess I need to upgrade excel with 2013 version.

Is this a certification course ? If not, then what should we do to get a certificate for our learnings ?

Hello Dhiraj.. This is a free course so no certificate is issued for completing it

Will I receive a certificate of completion for this training?

Hello Terri.. This is a free course so no certificate is issued for completing it

I created some data in Sheet 1, Cell A1 (in Excel 2016), and I linked these contents of Sheet 1 to Sheet 2, Cell A1. I created a link to enable the contents of Sheet 1 (Cell A1) to appear automatically in Sheet 2 so that whenever I change the contents of Sheet 1, the same automatically changes in Sheet 2. To quickly go back to Sheet 1 (where the original data is contained), I used DOUBLE-CLICK method and, as expected, Excel immediately moved back to Sheet 1, Cell A1.

However, when I use my laptop at home (also Excel 2016) and try to DOUBLE-CLICK when I am in Sheet 2 in order to quickly go back to Sheet 1, Cell A1, instead of linking me to Sheet 1, the cursor is just blinking in Sheet 2.

Question: How do I change the settings of my laptop at home to enable me jump from Sheet 2 to Sheet 1 upon double-clicking the link in Sheet 2, Cell A1, to enable me to go to the actual location of my data in Sheet 1? Thank you.

Hi Sir! Thank you for this three tutorial. Unfortunately, I don’t see any video to watch. What should I do?

When you click on the gray bars on the page above, you will get the video that you can watch. Are you not getting any videos when you click on the gray bar?

No, I don’t see any videos. Just a list of what we will learn in the section.

Can you please try now? Also, refresh the page (hold the control key and then hit the F5 key). This should fix the issue

That’s perfect! Thank You Sumit.

Click on the link and then scroll down slowly, so you do not pass it up, until you see the box with the video area….

no. not getting any videos

Sumit You are truly an MVP. Your videos and instructions are fantastic, they are easy to understand, not cumbersome or a burden to watch and your instruction is simple and precise. I have used Excel for a very long time but each time I need an answer you are my go to search and instructor and it goes without saying I always find what I am looking for. Are you as good in other aspects of the MS Suite or Master of one? Let me know. Thanks for your support. Paramveer Sidhu

Thank you so much for the kind word Paramveer 🙂 I only focus on MS Excel. While I use most of MS apps, I am not as deep into it as I am in Excel.

Are you on linkedin?

Wonderful learning tool for work experience

Hi Sumit Bansal,

I don’t find any video link in this page…

Video links?

Hi, the links to your videos disappear. Could you please fix it?

Where are the links to start the course – videos??

Click on the link and then scroll down slowly, so you do not pass it up, until you see the box with the video area….

Bro where is the link to videos????

Your website provides excellent insight in Excel which is very useful for every type of end user.

I am struggling with an issue, I am unable to resolve myself and I hope you can give me right direction: In my first worksheet “dataentry” I have a column A and B, where column A is a dropdown list with numbers and column B is a dependent dropdown list related to column A. On my second worksheet “datalists” I created the value lists related to column A and B. The problem lies in the fact that on the “datalist” worksheet Column A defines the value list which should be displayed when selecting the value for Column A on the “dataentry” but that I want to see the full description from Column B from the “datalist” sheet in my dropdown list. Similarly, on the “datalist” worksheet Column C defines the value list which should be displayed when selecting the value for Column B on the “dataentry” but that I want to see the full description from Column D from the “datalist” sheet in my dropdown list.

I hope I made my problem clear and really hope you are able to help me out here.

Thanks in advance!

really helpful pls post some course on advance excel such as vlookup & hlookup, data validation

Do they give a certificate on completion of course too?

I enjoy your courses, you make learning Excel easy !!

Need your support on power query. I have gone through the video of merging multiple workbooks into one workbook. That was an interesting feature. However need to know one thing. In case we have two worksheets on three workbooks with similar names, is it possible to merge into one having the end result as a combined workbook with two worksheets

Thank you Sumit. Your sessions are awesome and its a great learning for all of us

do i get any certificate after completing this course?

I have 1 to 20different amount & m No10fdeleted how to shift up 11 to 20 up

Thank You Sumit, you have a heart for people and an understanding of their needs, I honour you for the gift that you are sharing with us, I pray blessings over any venture that you set your heart on.

Great Job Sumit

Excel Homework Help – Excel Assignment Solutions for Students

Excel stylized icon

Students face various roadblocks: not sure where to start, difficult functions, ambiguous questions, Excel on Mac doesn’t load, expensive licenses, etc. It doesn't matter - simply provide us with the necessary materials and relax.

Operating since 2013, we have accumulated experience to help with any Excel project , no matter if it is a beginner or advanced level. It is now easier than ever to overcome your struggles by using an online Excel assignment help service.

What Students Are Being Taught Excel?

It is not just you - everybody from Physics students to Management students is introduced to MS Excel. Why so? It is an essential tool in data storage and quick yet powerful analysis, while also being intuitive. Excel offers the functionality of a regular programming language while letting users achieve it mainly by mouse-clicking on the graphic interface, without obtaining specialized programming knowledge. Subjects like economics, finance, and business analysis are hardly imagined without using Excel in one way or the other. Most tasks solved in Excel are of a general kind – they are subject-independent. This is why we can offer homework help with Excel in a wide variety of disciplines.

Excel was the first mover in the field of data spreadsheets and it is still the keystone product of Microsoft. However, lately, some alternatives have emerged such as Tableau or Google sheets that take up a portion of the market. But you can be certain - Excel is here to stay. Your knowledge would not become obsolete, so it is worth putting the effort into studies.

It is often the case that data analysis using Excel is just an intermediate step of some bigger decision process. After the Excel part of the work is complete, one might need to write a report describing the key findings (in Word or PDF document). Alternatively, a slide presentation is prepared (usually using PowerPoint) to present the findings among interested parties, very often in front of the class.

Popular Excel Assignments That We Often Help With

  • VLOOKUP. This might look strange, but many students cannot use VLOOKUP in their homework properly. We can teach you the correct way of choosing the function parameters. Related to this are INDEX and MATCH functions. The combo of these two is equivalent to VLOOKUP (or HLOOKUP).
  • Finance and Economics. It is a broad topic, ranging from stock returns calculation to Pareto front calculations. Data table entry and conditional calculations (using IF, AND, OR) are typical for these kinds of homework.
  • Mortgage calculation, Loan amortization table. Formulas in use: PMT, IPMT, PPMT, CPMT, etc. The calculation result is displayed as a payment value for monthly payments together with a breakdown of payment parts. Alternatively, you could be asked to calculate some value (e.g. cumulative interest paid over loan lifetime) while having other variables fixed.
  • Linear Regression. It is usually the first approach method in data modeling. A data analysis toolbox is used for this calculation. Unfortunately, Excel practitioners are not well-versed in statistics and rarely check for linear regression model assumptions. Ignoring this crucial part can lead to the resulting model looking nice while being totally wrong.
  • Data Entry Validation and Conditional Formatting. These are very useful tools to assist in outlier detection, but regular Excel user never uses them. This is why students might need help with such assignment solutions.
  • What-If analysis: Goal-seek, Scenario manager, and Data tables. These are intermediate-difficulty assignments. It is not plain simple on how to achieve the assignment instruction requirements while dealing with this analysis.

Automated Excel Class: Pearson CIS, MyITLab, SIMnet, SAM

Automated grading of Excel assignments has recently gotten extremely popular. Such tasks ask you to follow the instructions from Word Instructions Document to edit the Excel spreadsheet. This kind of assignment doesn’t test your ability to think creatively or solve ill-defined problems. They are used for a mechanic evaluation of technical Excel skills and must be completed in exactly the way you are taught in class. In fact, you are "punished" for being creative – automatic graders might not understand your formula even if it is correct, but written in some other way than expected. This is why students get desperate and ask for our assistance.

We help with unique solutions to Pearson CIS, MyITLab, SIMnet, or SAM project assignments. You never get caught for plagiarism and receive top marks: Capstone Project, CapAssesment, and final exams.

One extra reason for using our services for automated graders is that Excel software is too expensive to buy for a single class. You have extra problems if you are a Mac user – it simply does not work on Mac! So you might need to get another computer to complete your homework to pass the class. It is way cheaper to use our Excel help.

Popular More Advanced Excel Assignments

Advanced Excel problems cannot be graded automatically because they are open-ended, the solution depends on chosen perspective and subjective evaluation of assumptions and the data. The situation is similar to essay writing in top universities versus fixed technical tasks in "cheaper" universities – extra resources are necessary to prepare and grade the open-ended questions.

Excel Pivot Table solution in Pivot Chart

  • VBA. Visual Basic is an old and "ugly" programming language. However, it is highly functional and works perfectly for Excel Object manipulation. Using VBA you can automate mechanical tasks that you would otherwise do by hand. By using Excel you don’t need to program as in a regular programming language. The formulas of Excel are often the first step towards programming, while VBA is considered a programming-based solution to Excel problems. It has all essential programming functionality, like looping through Excel cells, conditional logic of comparing values, and setting variables.
  • Excel Macros is a nice functionality in-between graphical user interface in Excel and VBA code. It records your actions and translates them into VBA program code. However, lots of unnecessary code gets generated and you need to understand how to edit your recorded code properly. Macro recording gets you a jumpstart in writing a VBA automation script – instead of looking for explanations in the online documentation, students can generate partial solutions without any programming knowledge. Both macros and VBA are "hidden" from a regular user under the Developer tab (you must enable it in Excel options).
  • ActiveX Controls: Button, Combo Box, Etc. This extra visual "web-like" functionality is reachable from developer mode. All the buttons and forms work as VBA commands, so if you want to use these functions you better be ready for some VBA programming.
  • Other: Probabilities-Related Tasks. These cover a wide range of statistical calculations, like sampling from distributions or probability evaluations of some range in data. Our advice is to use "real programming languages" for such goals, like R or Python. Nevertheless, we can help with advanced calculations.

Excel Solver Help for Linear Optimization Assignments

We consider optimization assignments as a difficult, but separate class from the others. In mathematics, it is called operations research. So you might be asked to deliver not only an Excel Solver solution but also a mathematical justification for it. To get started using solver you need to turn on the optimization add-in. It is not a basic functionality of Excel, because deep knowledge is often required to achieve the results.

How Does Solver Optimization Homework Look Like?

Excel Solver Parameter Entry Interface

Explaining the full example task is simply not feasible in this article. Excel solver restrictions entry interface requires you to:

  • Set objective. Choose a single cell to be minimized, optimized, or become an exact value.
  • Set variable cells – one or more cells to variate
  • Add single or multiple constraints (equal, more, less, binary, etc.)
  • Select a Solving Method. Simplex LP is a linear programming method. For it to work, all the constraints must be linearly dependent. The solution is guaranteed in such a case. If you have non-linear restrictions (like some Excel function or multiplication of variables) you must use other methods, but they are not guaranteed to find a unique solution.

When to Consider Receiving Excel Homework Help?

There are various reasons why students need to buy Excel homework help , some of them already mentioned in the article. You can think of such help as tutoring or as outsourcing the hard work when the outcome is worth it. Your position depends on the situation you find yourself in. Sometimes there is no time for studies and you are pressured to deliver, other times your computer just got broken. The cause really does not matter – the value of the exchange is what matters.

Over the years, our online Excel helpers have completed thousands of homeworks. It is very likely that you will find yourself staring at Excel sheets later in your career. Then you will have real problems to solve and you will know exactly what you need to do, instead of solving various "fake" assignments in college or university. Our clients graduate with the best grades leading to top positions in the business world. We wish you the best.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. No hidden fees. You pay for the solution only, and all the explanations about how to run it are included in the price. It takes up to 24 hours to get a quote from an expert. In some cases, we can help you faster if an expert is available, but you should always order in advance to avoid the risks. You can place a new order here .

The cost depends on many factors: how far away the deadline is, how hard/big the task is, if it is code only or a report, etc. We try to give rough estimates here, but it is just for orientation (in USD):

Credit card or PayPal. You don't need to create/have a Payal account in order to pay by a credit card. Paypal offers you "buyer's protection" in case of any issues.

We have no way to request money after we send you the solution. PayPal works as a middleman, which protects you in case of any disputes, so you should feel safe paying using PayPal.

No, unless it is a data analysis essay or report. This is because essays are very personal and it is easy to see when they are written by another person. This is not the case with math and programming.

It is because we don't want to lie - in such services no discount can be set in advance because we set the price knowing that there is a discount. For example, if we wanted to ask for $100, we could tell that the price is $200 and because you are special, we can do a 50% discount. It is the way all scam websites operate. We set honest prices instead, so there is no need for fake discounts.

No, it is simply not how we operate. How often do you meet a great programmer who is also a great speaker? Rarely. It is why we encourage our experts to write down explanations instead of having a live call. It is often enough to get you started - analyzing and running the solutions is a big part of learning.

Another expert will review the task, and if your claim is reasonable - we refund the payment and often block the freelancer from our platform. Because we are so harsh with our experts - the ones working with us are very trustworthy to deliver high-quality assignment solutions on time.

Homework Planner Template

The best thing I can say about this homework planner is that my own kids like it enough to want me to print a copy for them each week. The design for this planner came from a mash-up of the techniques that my brother and I used in college to organize our time. I've refined the design based on feedback from my kids (one high-schooler and two home-schoolers).

How It Works : This planner combines two very useful tools for keeping track of your homework assignments, both on a single page. First, on the left is a homework check list for each of your classes. Use it to list the assignments, due dates, and the estimated time to complete each assignment. List upcoming exams and plan times to study. Second, on the right side you can plan your week to figure out how you will get everything done.

Printable Homework Planners

The following PDF files can be printed as needed. The main difference is in the weekly schedule because high-schoolers and home-schoolers tend to do their homework at different times of the day.

Student Homework Planner PDF

License : Private Use (not for distribution or resale)

Authors: Jon Wittwer and Jim Wittwer


This spreadsheet includes two separate worksheets with slightly different designs. The Homeschool design doesn't include the "time" column because we found it wasn't as critical to predict how much time a particular assignment would take. However, for high school and college, estimating the time to complete each assignment can be extremely helpful.

We designed it so that you can either print blank copies of the planner, or edit it electronically. You may be able to store and edit this planner on your mobile device if you are using Excel for iPad/iPhone or Google Sheets.

Tips for Students:

1. Customize the template: Using Excel or Word, enter your class names on the left and your typical weekly schedule. For example, use the schedule to highlight the times for each of your classes, your extracurricular activities, part-time jobs, etc.

2. Print blank copies: After customizing the template, you can print as many of these planner pages as you need, and you won't need to enter your typical weekly schedule each time.

3. Don't forget incomplete assignments: When switching to a new page each week, don't forget to go through your list of assignments and transfer the incomplete assignments to the new page.

4. Don't lose it: Keep your planner page in a folder that you always have with you. If you are worried about misplacing it, try taking a picture of it with your phone as a backup.

5. Use a mobile app: If you have a phone with the Excel or Word app or Google Docs app, and you are allowed to use a mobile device in school, you could try going paperless and editing the template on your phone. You could also try using one of the many "student planner" or "homework planner" mobile apps. The problem with this approach is that phones can be a huge distraction. If you are obsessed with Instagram or texting, it may be better to avoid using your phone if you want to get anything done.

Note to Teachers:

You are welcome to print copies of this planner to give to your students. The worksheet is pretty intuitive, but don't assume that students will know how to use it. Teach them about managing their time and help them learn how a planner can help.

One important thing that you can do to help your students is to give them a realistic estimate of how much time each assignment will take. If you get a lot of students complaining that an assignment took longer than you said, either cut back the work (if it was excessive), or use the feedback to give a better estimate next time around.
