What do you think of this book? I messaged one of my old friends in the industry and she uses Excel 2010. I currently have 2007 student version of Excel (wife is schoolteacher) and planned to buy Excel 2013 to start practicing. The interface on the student version of the software is probably different than what folks use on the job and I want to be well prepared.

Walkenbach's stuff is good. I don't think that much has changed though

Yea, it's not called the Bible for nothing. If you find a 2007 version though I'm sure that's fine as well.

You should go to ACTEX and look for "Actuarial Technical Toolbox: Getting the Most Out of Excel" in the Career Building Skills section of their site.

There's about 3 or 4 (pre-recorded) session done by the AO's very own Mary Pat Cambell.

She also has 2 or 3 sessions on VBA as well.
