This book is based on Power Pivot for Excel 2016. Power Pivot is a popular tool for Excel. It is powerful and easy to learn. Power Pivot For Excel Made Easy gets you up and running with Power Pivot by teaching you the basics relatively quickly, so that you can import data and create pivot tables and chart for decision making purposes.

Each chapter explains new concepts and most chapters have exercises to help reinforce the topics. This puts your new skills to work right away. I try hard not to bore you with a lot of history. You will learn how to link data tables, create summary pivot tables and make the data displayed in a pivot table interactive by adding filters, slicers and timelines. And did I say that sample files are available, so that you can complete the step-by-step instructions? What makes Power Pivot fun is that you can see your changes (good or bad) immediately.
