Data at Work: Best practices for creating effective charts and information graphics in Microsoft Excel
Information visualization is a language. Like any language, it can be used for multiple purposes. A poem, a novel, and an essay all share the same language, but each one has its own set of rules. The same is true with information visualization: a product manager, statistician, and graphic designer each approach visualization from different perspectives. Data at Work was written with you, the spreadsheet user, in mind. This book will teach you how to think about and organize data in ways that directly relate to your work, using the skills you already have. In other words, you don’t need to be a graphic designer to create functional, elegant charts: this book will show you how. Although all of the examples in this book were created in Microsoft Excel, this is not a book about how to use Excel. Data at Work will help you to know which type of chart to use and how to format it, regardless of which spreadsheet application you use and whether or not you have any design experience. In this book, you’ll learn how to extract, clean, and transform data; sort data points to identify patterns and detect outliers; and understand how and when to use a variety of data visualizations including bar charts, slope charts, strip charts, scatter plots, bubble charts, boxplots, and more. Because this book is not a manual, it never specifies the steps required to make a chart, but the relevant charts will be available online for you to download, with brief explanations of how they were created.

Excel University Volume 3 – Featuring Excel 2013 for Windows: Microsoft Excel Training for CPAs and Accounting Professionals
The third installment in the Excel University series picks up right where Volume 2 leaves off. In the final exercise of Volume 2, we created a formula-based report that required several features and functions. In Volume 3, we build that same report without writing a single formula. We create it with the PivotTable feature. The first section of this volume covers PivotTable basics and concludes with a comparison between formula-based and PivotTable reports. The second section explores various report layout and design options that enable us to replace our formula-based reports with PivotTables when appropriate. In the final section, we consider the reporting process, including efficient ways to get data into our workbooks, how to prepare the data for use, and how to summarize it graphically with PivotCharts and other Excel features. Excel practice files and solutions videos are available online so you can work hands-on as you read through the content. The skills developed in this volume will help you get your work done in less time.
