This book just beats the tar out of the comparable ". . . For Dummies" and ". . . For Complete Idiots" analogs. The exercises step you through all of the basics of Excel and the color images show you what will really be on the screen. Each step is clearly marked and there are no obvious leaps to another level. Various shades of black and white can show a great deal, but there are times when only color will do. This is especially true when color coding is used to differentiate different key aspects of the display, which is done in Excel. This is the book that I recommended be adopted for future classes in Excel and the one I would use if I were to teach the class again.
