Tips and Tricks in Excel-Based Financial Modeling, Volume I by M. A. MianThe purpose of this work is to show some advanced concepts related to Excel based financial modelling. Microsoft Excel(tm) is a very powerful tool and most of the time we do not utilize its full potential. Of course, any advanced concepts require the basic knowledge which most of us have and then build on it. It is only by hands-on experimentation that one learns the art of constructing an efficient worksheet. The two volumes of this book cover dynamic charting, macros, goal seek, solver, the routine Excel functions commonly used, the lesser known Excel functions, the Excel's financial functions and so on. The introduction of macros in these books is not exhaustive but the purpose of what is presented is to show you the power of Excel and how it can be utilized to automate most repetitive calculations at a click of a button. For those who use Excel on a daily basis in financial modeling and project/investment evaluations, this book is a must.
