This text combines the teaching and explanation of spreadsheets with the essentials of finance and economics in a highly-visual, interactive and project-based approach. Students progressively build skills in Microsoft Excel, by proceeding through a variety of basic applications. Users of other spreadsheets will also benefit from the book. This innovative publication includes an accompanying disk that provides the spreadsheet files on which the text is based and the data for the exercises and assignments following each chapter.
"I don't know of any other text which manages to splice a thorough grounding of the underlying theory with a gradual introduction to all spreadsheet tools needed to enable students to rapidly move to a 'learning by doing' state."
