Hi,
Can someone point out a good and easy to read Excel book or manual. I just interviewed for an analyst job and one of their requirements is I need to know/use Excel.

I wouldn't recommend getting a book on Excel, instead I would just read/do Microsoft's free tutorials. They should lead you through almost everything you would need to know.

Learning to use Excel professionally is not something you will pick up in an afternoon by reading a book. Certainly not by reading a "simple" book. If you already know how to use a spreadsheet to do the analysis in question and just need Excel specifics you might manage it but starting from scratch is going to take a while.

Yes, I'm starting from scratch. One good thing about is they know i've never used excel so they have to train me first. I was trying to learn a little before starting my new job.

Have you used any spreadsheet software at all?

If you have, there a few differences (like the functions series).

If you already know how to do the analysis and they are willing to teach you Excel check out the computer books at any good bookstore. Ask the person who will be your boss to recommend a good one to start with.
