Excel Statistics

Numbers are the lifeblood of business, be it marketing, human resources, operations,

research, or senior management. You need to know where you are, and perhaps more

Understanding these numbers typically requires more than sums and differences, you

need to know trends, and finding them is the province of statistics. Fortunately, Excel
