Happy 2016! Thank you for your attendance. I am looking forward to the next 6 weeks together. I promise to make the class as enjoyable as possible, while teaching you all about Excel! The book ISBN for this class is Benchmark Excel 2013 L1&L2, 9780763853891. The Excel 2013 Level 1 only is 9780763853907. I would suggest looking for a used book at Amazon.com or half.com. It should save you some money. Make SURE and have it shipped expedited!

I suggest that you take a look at some of these books at Amazon as well. They will help you with the business math part of Excel.
