This book is for users who want to upgrade their basic Excel skills to true expert level. It will teach you to master all of Excel’s advanced features. If you are an absolute beginner you need our Essential Skills book. The book is very, very different to any other computer book you have ever read. The Smart Method provides an entirely new and better way to master advanced Excel features. Here’s just four of the many ways in which the book is unique: This book won’t waste your time by teaching basic Excel skills that you already know. All of that material is covered already in our beginner’s Essential Skills book. By assuming that you are already able to use Excel’s basic features, far more ground can be covered. Instruction is logically structured into sessions and lessons. While this makes the book ideal for self-instruction, you can also use it to run your own, highly effective, adult training courses. Every lesson is presented on two facing sheets of A4 paper (the pages are much bigger than in any other Excel book). Each lesson has a sample file that models a real-world business problem. You’ll immediately appreciate the value and relevance of each skill you learn. Advanced concepts are explained without needless technical jargon. Everything is concisely described in a simple, no-nonsense way. No matter what your background is, this book will enable you to master Excel's most advanced features.
