Excel for Engineers and Scientists
S. C. Bloch
Using an informal, conversational style, this "how to" book guides beginning
students from spreadsheet basics through the robust engineering and scientific
applications of EXCEL, including using EXCEL in the lab.
Students learn how to compose structured, efficient, documented workbooks with data entry cells, summary results and statistics cells, and commented cells. Throughout the book, they'll find innovative techniques for composing spreadsheets, solving problems, analyzing data, and presenting results that will help them in their courses and professional careers. End-of-Chapter problems not only show how to use EXCEL, they also relate directly to topics in engineering and the sciences. Plus, a CD, which is packaged with the text, contains sample workbooks, links to online EXCEL resources, and text updates via the book's web site.
