Microsoft Excel Essential Hints and Tips: Fundamental Hints and Tips to Kick Start Your Excel Skills (Learn Excel Visually Journey Book 1)

Free short ebook!

This ebook is for the Excel beginner. It’s a basic Excel starter ebook which will give you skills to super-charge your spreadsheet aptitude. We look at how to set up your spreadsheet, getting data into Excel, formatting your spreadsheet, a bit of display management and how to print and share your spreadsheets.

Is this ebook right for you? Will it give you the Excel help you need? Take a glimpse inside the first few pages – if you like what you see, then go ahead and buy – why not – it’s free!

Learn Excel Visually

The idea of these short handy bite-size books is to provide you with what I have found to be most useful elements of Excel within my day-to-day work and life. I don’t tell you about all the bells and whistles – just what you need on a daily basis. These ebooks are suitable for anyone who is looking to learn Excel and wants to increase their productivity and efficiency, both at work and home. Please bear in mind I don’t cover all functionality of all areas, the point is that I strip out anything that’s not useful and only highlight the functionality that I believe is useful on a daily basis. Don’t buy a huge textbook which you’ll never fully read, pick an ebook which is most relevant to your current learning, read it, apply it and then get on with your day.

Why is this ebook free?

A lot of the information in this ebook can be found on the internet; but not in this consolidated and concise way. As mentioned above, my desire is to teach you what you need to know, not what you don’t. I only cover stuff that I have found useful in my Excel life. I want to give you some Excel tips which will get you started. If you want to learn more, I have several other ebooks on Excel training which you can take a look at. I’ll leave it completely up to you.
