About this Book
Reviews from the First Edition:
"Excel® for Chemists should be part of any academic library offering courses and programs in chemistry. There is no other book on the market that deals so thoroughly with the application of Excel for analyzing chemical data. Highly recommended, for upper-division undergraduates through professionals."
"I highly recommend this book; treat yourself to it; assign it to a class; give it as a gift."
Chemists across all subdisciplines use Excel to record data in tabular form, but few have learned to take full advantage of the scientific calculating power within this program. Excel is capable of helping chemists process, analyze, and present scientific data, from the relatively simple to the highly complex. Excel® for Chemists, Second Edition has been revised and updated, not only to take into account the changes that were made in Excel, but also to incorporate an abundance of new examples.
Arranged in a user-friendly format, this book contains illustrations and examples of chemical applications, useful "How to" boxes outlining how to accomplish complex tasks in Excel, and step-by-step instructions for programming Excel to automate repetitive data-processing tasks. In addition, tips are provided to speed, simplify, and improve your use of Excel. Included is a CD-ROM, usable in either Macintosh or IBM/Windows environments with many helpful spreadsheet templates, macros, and other tools.
