This third edition of the best selling text, Spreadsheet Projects in Excel, features a new colour design and updated project advice.
The book is aimed at a number of Advanced courses of study within the National Qualifications Framework currently available in schools and colleges, supported by AQA, OCR, Edexcel and WJEC. The book has been comprehensively revised and extended to cover the requirements of all Applied A and AS Level ICT spreadsheet units, in addition to the coursework requirements of A and AS Levels in ICT. The materials and approach used in the book should also be applicable to students on many courses in further and higher education where a study of spreadsheets through Microsoft (R) Excel TM is necessary.

- Spreadsheet examples to introduce the reader to all the skills and techniques in Excel TM required for Applied AS and A2 Level units;
- The development of fully customised solutions for A Level units including features such as LOOKUP, spinners, option boxes, macros and UserForms;
