Excel 2003

My mom got a job where she needs to know Excel. She's not very computer literate and I don't know Excel myself as I haven't had to use it much. Can anyone recommend a book or video course that can help her out. She has to do a lot with graphs as well.

    Have a look at the O'Reilly Personal Trainer book:

    http://www.amazon.com/Excel-2003-Personal-Trainer-OReilly/dp/0596008538/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1220025341&sr=1-1

    Covers everything from how to create a new workbook all the way through to Pivot Tables and is designed for absolute beginners. It's kind of goofy with the whole superhero thing, but it's probably the best one out there.

    I used this book in my college course and it does a very good job, especially for self-training. It also has a tear-off reference that can be kept on the desk.

    I know people who have used it before. They said it was one of the most simplistic things ever.....it's made for a complete newbie to be able to figure it out......and it's free the first time you order....

    CBT Nuggets and Train Signal both have Excel 2007 if she ever needs that. Looks like only the nuggets have the 03 versions as well.
