Lessons Microsoft Excel 2019 Basic

Great recommendation to my students and I highly recommend this to any faculty member looking for an OER textbook for an introductory Excel course. It is highly relevant, as Excel is highly multi-disciplinary and the content of this textbook addresses the many facets of application areas with their examples. I would suggest covering absolute reference and relative reference together instead of splitting them. I would also suggest covering all the Print topic together instead of splitting into different chapters. Even though your current logic of splitting them makes sense, it makes the “Print” and “Cell reference” topics less easier to be used as independent subunits.

  • I found no issues with the navigation, or distortion of images and charts.
  • In this course, your expert author gives you a solid grounding in the basics of Excel and guides you towards becoming more confident with spreadsheets.
  • The detailed hyperlinked Table of Contents was more than adequate for finding search topics.
  • Format cells by selecting fonts and color fills to make information more attractive.

Each chapter builds on the prior chapter, providing an excellent sequence for learning the program. This book is a good resource for anyone who is new to using Excel as well as for those who need a refresher. There was nothing in the textbook that seemed culturally insensitive or offensive. Since it is a software-based book, there isn’t a discussion of social issues, such as race or ethnicity, in this textbook. The spreadsheets that are provided use real-life data examples that students from a variety of backgrounds may find familiar, like calculating a monthly budget or a car payment.

Microsoft Excel 2019 – Basic

Discover concepts to help you understand how to enter data into an Excel spreadsheet, using Flash Fill and working with worksheets. Use to restrict users ability to enter invalid data in cells by providing them with a drop down list of valid options. How to create an effective bar chart by reducing ink and noise that distract from the story.

  • The graphics are displayed well with limited use of colors and extraneous material.
  • Concepts and applications are clearly explained step by step.
  • There are various typing errors that do not detract from the meaning of the lesson presented.
  • The glossary is helpful for getting to specific content quickly.
  • The personal finance section deals with mortgage payments, but does not assume home ownership in a culturally insensitive way.
  • Again, spreadsheet software, whether it be Excel or a Google worksheet generally maintain standard functionalities so updating a book such as this should be terribly difficult.

Any jargon used is defined and simplified for the readers with visual aids as applicable. I found no issues with the navigation, or distortion of images and charts. There are no distracting images or text that would cause confusion for the reader. The terminology Microsoft Excel 2019 Lessons is also consistent, as far as I could tell from the overview I completed. I’m very happy with the quality and organization of the book. Some of my comments are probably pretty nit-picky, but I tried to do this as a student without much Excel experience.

How you’ll learn

Unfortunately, we teach tables and working with multiple sheets/files in our Beginning Excel class, and these topics are not included. I was particularly appreciative of the level of specific detail that the author used in describing even the most basic of steps. One of the biggest complaints that I’ve heard from students who use technology textbooks is that authors sometimes assume that students know more than they actually do. This author is clearly not neglected the basics and no minor detail has been left out.
