Summary: As I take a few minutes to get away from this software I'd figure I'd give it a solid four. . . Even a moderate user like me can quickly adapt to many of the features of this popular spreadsheet program. Easy to use and utilize- it didn't take long for me to adapt to the features necessary to get quality work out of this product. Praising Microsoft is like rooting for Goliath, but they got this one right. . .
Summary: As much as I dislike Microsoft, I do like Excel. It is very intuitive and does the job. One neat feature is to be able to copy any data table from anywhere and paste into a spreadsheet. Then you can manipulate, add, average out etc. any data in the table and also have instant charts if you want.
Summary: As there is no RateItAll description for this software, Excel is a spreadsheet program primarily used for working with and manipulating numbers (eg financial statements, reports and graphs). I have used other spreadsheet programs (ie Lotus and Quattro); however, Excel seems to be the most powerful and intuitive.
Summary: If you don't have this skill, you must take a course in it especially if you are seeking some kind of office related job. Being in the recruiting business, I find that almost 95% of my clients will not even look at someone that doesn't know how to use this feature proficiently.
