Reviews from previous editions: "Excel for Chemists should be part of any academic library offering courses and programs in Chemistry." --Choice "I highly recommend the book; treat yourself to it; assign it to a class; give it as a gift." --The Nucleus The newly revised step-by-step guide to using the scientific calculating power of Excel to perform a variety of chemical calculations Chemists across all subdisciplines use Excel to record data in tabular form, but few have learned to take full advantage of the program. Featuring clear step-by-step instructions, Excel for Chemists illustrates how to use the scientific calculating power of Excel to perform a variety of chemical calculations. Including a CD-ROM for Windows, this new edition provides chemists and students with a detailed guide to using the current versions of Excel (Excel 2007 and 2010) as well as Excel 2003. Additional features in this third edition include: * How to perform a variety of chemical calculations by creating advanced spreadsheet formulas or by using Excel's built-in tools * How to automate repetitive tasks by programming Excel's Visual Basic for Applications * New chapters show how to import data from other language versions of Excel, and how to create automatic procedures * The accompanying CD contains a number of Excel macros to facilitate chemical calculations, including molecular weight, nonlinear regression statistics, and data interpolation * Several appendices provide extensive lists of useful shortcut keys and function descriptions
"Finally this new edition, provides chemists and students a detailed guide and examples how to apply the current versions of Excel to their needs. It should be added to the shelves of those using this program within their scientific work." (Materials and Corrosion, 1 November 2012)
