    I've actually read this book and it's probably one of the best books on the book shelves but you need to have slightly beyond a working knowledge of Excel and Visual Basic to really benefit from the book. I would suggest reading a book on both topics before tackling this book, or perhaps even taking a class at the local college if the OP felt it necessary.

    All things considered, EViews absolutely blows Excel away when it comes to financial modeling capabilities. I used that program in an Econometrics class and ended up buying the program -- it's that good!

     
  6. I'll look at that... I'm gonna take a intro course in the spring
     
  7. that does look pretty snazzy..
