I have long been one of the biggest supporters of O'Reillys "Missing Manual" line of books, but I think I have found another line that I enjoy just as much. The "Plain & Simple" books by Microsoft continue to astound me with the quality of the product for the pennies that you pay, and always in FULL COLOR FULL COLOR FULL COLOR
With 300 pages of content, you learn the basics of Excel 2010, what is included in the newest release, along with all the staples you would expect like how to create and use Workbooks/Worksheets, functions, charts, embedding, it's all here!! I have long felt that Excel was one of the flagship products of Microsoft and it's one of the things that made it into the company it is today. If you want to learn how to get around easily and quickly, this is a PERFECT resource for you!!
***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
