Read What Students In Difficult Statistics Courses Just Like You And Their Professors Are Saying About The Excel Statistical Master:
"I bought Mark Harmon's Excel Master Series manual as a reference for a graduate course on statistics that I was taking as part of an MBA program at the University of Delaware. I purchased the materials about halfway through the course and
wish I had known about this manual from the start of the class!
Mark has done a great job in writing complex statistical concepts in an easy to understand format that makes grasping them both easy to understand and to use.
With the help of Mark's book, and some diligent studying, I received an A in my stats course.
"The Excel Statistical Master really saved me in my graduate statistics class last semester. The book that was used in the class really did not give the practical down to earth instructions I needed to apply my statistical knowledge to excel.
In this quide I was able to find helpful step by step instructions (and pictures) that walked me through creating ANOVA's, Hypothesis testing, and so much more.
I highly recommend this book for graduate students and managers who are looking to maximize the power of Excel in their daily operational activities."

"Mark, Thanks for your invaluable material. I have used it in my current business research methods for my bachelor students. It has enabled me to abandon SPSS for the first time!
I have also given your link to
the last MBA class I had. They told me that your book was of great help to understand my course!"

"Faced with a seemingly intractable spreadsheet assignment for my online Operational Research course at a UK university and very little time,
my purchase of this book could not have come at a better time.
With clear steps to follow, mastering the Statistical 'matter' and being able to apply them with Microsoft Excel assisted a great deal and broke down the 'hard nuts' in my spreadsheet assignment quickly.
I recommend this book if you are afraid of 'statistics'. It'll definitely drive those fears far away."

"After years of searching for a simplified statistics book, I found the Excel Statistical Master.
Unlike the indecipherable jargon in the countless books I have wasted money on,
the language in this book is plain and easy to understand.
This is the best $40 I have ever spent."

"Currently I am teaching MBA courses at New York and I must say, I really like the Excel Statistical Master. It is incredibly useful. The explanations and videos in the manual are excellent.
It has really made my work with statistics a LOT easier. I'm really glad that I came across the manual.
If you're a student of business statistics, this e-manual is worth WAY more it's priced.
My students that I have referred to this manual told me that it really helped with several courses. My students all stated, and I agree, that the explanations are clear and easy-to-follow, and the manual is comprehensive."

"I am a medical student at Semmelweis University in Budapest and the Excel Statistical Master helped me so much with passing my midterms and my semifinal exam. There is no way I would have passed without it.
Even though I went to all of the classes and consultations, it was the
Excel Statistical Master that taught me all of the basic concepts for the different tests we used.
Each test is explained in different steps and how you performed it on
Excel. Illustrations and screenshots make it easy to follow, even for those like me that never had used
I highly recommend Excel Statistical Master for all medical students.
It's worth every dollar. And I have to say that the communication with the seller have been the best! If I had questions
about statistics problems, he more than gladly answered them. It's so easy and saved my from hours with reading!
Thanks a lot!"

at the University of Applied Sciences in Friedberg, Germany. During the day I am a sales manager in a production facility.
For my bachelors thesis, I am performing a comprehensive statistical analysis of repair costs at the facility that I work.
After searching for days on Google for the right framework to solve this problem, I finally found the solution. The Excel Statistical Master has allowed me to find exactly the right distributions and showed me how to create some excellent graphs. The explanations and videos in the manual are excellent, even for a non-native

"I am a recent MBA student from a top 10 business school in the US. I bought this product to supplement by knowledge about Statistics and haven't regretted about the decision.
The book is an excellent source of easy to understand material. The videos have
helped me immensely in my advanced marketing classes such as pricing and data driven marketing.
I highly recommend it to any current student or a working professional as a one stop shop for stats."

"I purchased the Excel Statistical Master program to serve as an additional point of reference,
to compliment my textbooks in my MBA Statistics class. The Excel Statistical Master program served that purpose.
The step-by-step instructions and video demonstrations provided an easy-to-understand platform.
I would encourage both students and professionals needing to perform
data analysis to purchase the Excel Statistical Master program.
The Excel Statistical Master program is a fantastic tool for anyone desiring to “make sense” of the data available to them."

“Bless you Mark,
Do you know how many students drop out of Stats with Excel courses because of the enormity of the course? And none of the teachuhow excel online courses ever cover the extent of stats needed.
This is great to know someone is out there to help the MBAs.
Wish you every success Mark.”

"I bought the Excel Statistical Master to help me in my statistics class. I must say, it was unbelievably useful. Not only did I master statistics in Excel, but
the e-manual actually did a much better job of explaining
statistics than my text book did.
That e-manual made my statistics class much easier to understand, and I am now able to do all of that stuff in Excel, easily ! It is a GREAT book !
If you're a student or business manager wanting to learn statistics, this is easiest, fastest way to do it.
Thank you again for everything."

"The Excel Statistical Master is being used for my MBA Thesis. I am using it to generate statistical analysis of my quantitative thesis study. It makes statistical calculation more meaningful. As I am working on my MBA thesis, I use it to generate statistics from the survey results that I collect.
It is one tool no one can be without, especially students.
I will also use it when I start my Business in Healthcare Statistics.

"It is terrific that you offer this ebook; you are doing a tremendous service for people and I thank you for that. This is such a useful tool that you are providing.
Statistics can be an intimidating subject and this is the only product out there that cuts through the complexities and gives a clear, easy to understand overview.
If you offer other products in the future, please feel free to put me on your marketing list. It is refreshing to meet good people that are willing to share valuable information.
"At first I was quite skeptical of this book and the attendant Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. Everyone touts how easy their product is and how you really "need" their product to be successful.
For one of the few times I can remember, that claim is fulfilled with this product.
I have been using Excel since the product first came out on the Macintosh. But the Excel Master series has shown me how really limited my knowledge was and how much there is yet to learn.
The Excel Master series is certainly an enjoyable and well constructed method of learning statistics.
The quality of the author's effort to reduce a relatively boring subject to easily understood examples and text is evident throughout.
I highly recommend this series to anyone interested in the application of statistics to everyday problems using to most powerful computer environment available."

Solve Real Problems At Work Are Saying About The Excel Statistical Master:
"We just started building statistical
Excel spreadsheets for our direct mail and online marketing campaigns, I purchased Excel Statistical Master to help fill in some of the blanks.
Little did I know, this book has everything I could ever want to know about business statistics.
Easy to follow and written so even a child could understand some of the most complex statistical theories.
"Whenever I evaluate a book on statistics, I always look at the table of contents to check both the topics covered and the examples.
Not only does the author cover all of the techniques you're likely to need in a graduate program, he also goes into substantial detail on when to use each technique.
I also found that his case studies and focused examples, all of which are listed in the detailed table of contents, were on point and good learning tools that will help learners know when and how to apply the techniques.
His explanations, particularly on when (and how) to use two-tailed tests for hypothesis testing and the Poisson and exponential distributions, were clear and will help anyone learn how to implement these techniques.
In particular, this book will help anyone without a substantial background in math, such as many political science M.A. students, to learn and apply the concepts.
Practical and Clear Graduate Statistics in Excel is very well done and well worth your money."

"The Excel Statistical Master is a real life saver in my forensic accounting practice.
Until I found the package I was struggling with some of the "how to" aspects of statistics..no more.
The videos are an extra bonus that really help!
I am very pleased!!!"
"I'm a Statistician with more than 25 years of field work,
at the same time I'm probably the top MS Excel expert in the Middle East.
Excel now is a Universal tool and an absolute must for those wishing to
understand practical Statistics and applying Statistics to a very large
percentage of real life situations.
All of the above facts require a clear understanding of the statistical
features and capabilities of Excel. What is needed is a guide that
takes you to the point DIRECTLY.
As an Instructor Mr. Harmon's excellent
work saves me considerable time, and should help all students.
And as a quick and direct revision tool for those applying Statistics in Business,
Insurance, Medical Decision making and many more situations.
Thank you very much Mr. Harmon."

"Mark, I am quite impressed with the Excel Statistical Master.
As a research practitioner, I’ve used the easy-to-understand document to help work through some pretty daunting data sets.
As a professor of research, I will suggest the eManual as a supplement to my students.
I think the strength of the eManual is the straightforward explanations of complex procedures
in a software platform that is readily available. SPSS and SAS should shudder at the competition.

"This book (and associated optional video material)
allows people with only very basic statistics knowledge to apply useful statistical analysis in MS/Excel
by explaining the concept, introducing examples, showing how to use formulas in those examples and even calculating by hand some of the statistical values you would only normally obtain by using an excel function (without regards on how the values are actually obtained).
This is a small investment that could provide you with good possibilities to advance both in school and in your professional life.
If you are looking for an easy way to use statistical analysis this is a right investment. Also the author is willing to answer questions if you ever have one, though I confess I've never asked anything."

"The Excel Statistical Master eManual is a wonderful product for anyone who needs to apply a variety of statistical tools and does not have the time or background to develop those tools themselves.
The Excel Statistical Master is easy to use, comprehensive, and powerful.
Congratulations on an excellent product!"

"Going through Excel Statistical Master has helped me in filling the gaps which most of the professional ignore while building models from scratch.
There are many books in market available in market but
Excel Statistical Master explains everything in a simple way
and how to use Excel to solve real life problems.
Every topic in Excel Statistical Master is self explanatory
and I would recommend freshmen as well as professionals to go through Excel Statistical Master.

"I originally found this series on the author's website while searching for a intro guide to statistics using Excel.
As an engineering major in college, I never took statistics.
Now that I am a practicing engineer, statistics is an important part of my job - from reviewing test data to designing experiments and performing ANOVA.
The Excel Statistical Master series has helped me get up to speed faster than any traditional textbook.
I also found that my technical reports are more polished and professional as a result of my study of this material.
The lessons are organized into logical groupings of topics and are
just the right size for self-study or if you are using it as a course supplement.
Once I had mastered some of the basic topics I was able to skip around and study those topics I needed for my work.
The ability to follow along with the exercises in Excel and then test out new scenarios is a real bonus and a great way to gain a feel for some of the concepts.
Since most of my work is done with Excel anyway, the exercises have served as templates for my job.
I highly recommend this series to anyone who works with statistics and also to the professional who desires to have a nicely organized reference for performing statistical calculations in Excel."

"I use this book as a reference to insure I work a problem in the correct manner. I am not a statistician but I need to apply statistics from time to time. I don't remember if for a given situation I need to do a 2 tail test or a single tail test. Or if the probability in a situation is of normal or binomial nature.
This book is structured around examples (at least one for each single application of statistics covered in book)and the detailed way to work each one step by step.
Each step explains the theory behind it, what formulas to use and why, what assumptions to make or not make, and how to interpret the results.
It is easy to find an example that fits your particular problem. Following the example allows you to work out your own problem correctly. Doing it in excel allows you to present your problem, calculations, result and interpretation in a professional manner.
It is the best statistics reference I have seen so far and it is well worth the money."

"My first encounter with the EXCEL Statistical Master came when writing a report for a customer when the axiom "an un-used tool becomes rusty" presented itself. I knew what analysis and presentation tool I wanted, but using EXCEL became cumbersome and frustrating.
A quick on-line check revealed
the EXCEL Statistical Master which proved to be unequivocal, easy to follow, and complete.
Only after completing the report did I notice the description on the front page "Clear And Simple yet Thorough." Clearly, my experience supported substantiated this claim. Seldom does one encounter such truth in advertising.
Last weekend the manual was very useful in helping my grandson, who just started a statistics class in high school, help understand, envision, and define his semester project as to which data to gather and how to analyze and present that data.
I have recommended the Excel Statistical
Master to customers and my contractors."

"I am an IT Consultant who gives a Data Analysis for Decision Making workshop to various private and public sector organizations. This workshop consists of many statistical methods.
I often use the Excel Statistical Master in my workshop to demonstrate procedures, give usable examples and frequently, learn new procedures myself.
I find it easy to use, clear and succinct. It should wipe out the fear of statistics from those who have a block against it."
"I'm a PhD consultant in the area of "user experience". I help companies make their web sites user friendly. When I conduct a usability test on a web site design, I need to determine if one design is better than another. So I need to conduct a t-test. At other times, I conduct focus groups that help my client determine which of, say, 10 product designs is better than the others. So I need to conduct non-parametric ANOVAs on their rating responses.
All this goes to say, I need to deal with data rapidly, and in a manner that I can send to my client. Does my client have any statistical software? No, they don't have SyStat or MiniTab or SPSS, or any other packaged stats program. However, my clients DO have Excel.
With Excel, they can open my spreadsheet and see the data. While they are looking at the data (and perhaps running their own descriptive statistics like means, etc.) they can also see my statistical analysis I conducted with
the Excel Statistical Master. They can see my charts, too.
So, you can imagine the benefit this gives to my client. It's "one-stop shopping". Data, analysis, and charts all appear in one file. I like being able to send one file that works with Microsoft Office. My client has Microsoft Office. Now they have everything they wanted: stats, data, and charts."
