Where can I find an easy tutorial for Excel?

Phil December 10, 2010

I am not from the younger information age, but am a business person anxious to learn how to use Excel. I have intermediate computer skills, but find most explanations to be impossible to understand. Can anyone suggest an easier way?

    If you are starting Excel from scratch I recommend reading "Teach Yourself VISUALLY Excel 2007 by Nancy Muir." (also available in previous versions of Excel) This book clearly gives one concept at a time with drawings. It was extremely helpful to me because it is so straightforward. 'Best of luck, enjoy !!

    The public library usually is a good resource for this as well. Most offer classes at least a few times a year, and there are plenty of teach yourself books on just about every Microsoft product out there.
