Books on Excel

This page lists some of the Excel (VBA) books I like.

Excel 2007 VBA Programming For Dummies

John Walkenbach asked me whether I could help him to update this book to the 2007 version of Excel, because he was so busy doing the same for all of his other books. Of course I was honoured to do so.

This was my first experience writing a book and I must say I enjoyed it a lot.

Of course it is not up to me to write a review on this book. But what I can do is tell you when this book might be a good buy for you:
 

To give you an idea of what is covered in this book Wiley kindly permitted me to make a chapter available for download:

Excel 2007 VBA Programming FD Sample (Chapter 2) (03 April 2007, 709k, Downloaded: 21,422 times)

Go to this books website if you want to learn more, read other people's reviews, and etcetera:

Hi Karel,

I have seen also EXCEL 2007 power programming with VBA. Author John Walkenbach. Now i see another one "Excel 2007 VBA programming for dummies written by the same author. Which one is good for a beginner. I bought so far two books but they are not really what i am looking for.

Cheers,
Nasser.
