Excel is a calculation program, also called a 'spreadsheet program'. Working in Excel is actually like working on a large sheet of graph paper. You can type something in each square (cell). This can be a number, text or date, but also an underlying formula which allows you to perform calculations automatically. Not only can you calculate figures with Excel, you can also select, sort and arrange them. It is therefore an ideal program to create summaries with calculations or to organize lists with data.
The step by step instructions and examples in the Textbook will help you learn to use the program in the most efficient manner. With the additional exercises in the Workbook you can train yourself to become even more proficient in Excel.
After working through the books you have the opportunity to take the Microsoft Office Specialist ® (MOS) exam. Upon successful completion of this exam, you will receive an official certificate. This is a document that can be important in the workplace and a plus on your resume.
