''Excel is too powerful a tool to be left to accountants. It is so broadly available that all science and engineering students and professionals should be aware of its potential for applications in their fields.....A Guide to Microsoft Excel for Scientists and Engineers' is a valuable demonstration of how scientists, engineers and students can apply Excel to problems in their own specialisation. Its user-friendly style, including practical examples and screen captures, is easy to read and understand." (of the 2nd edition)

'This second edition...upholds the positive properties of the first. For instance, as in the first edition, it takes the trouble to define its terms...there is no deficit of detailed explanation, and a glance at the index will soon satisfy the potential purchaser that the addition 'for Scientists and Engineers' is no misnomer'
