I am not very good at creating tables, even simple ones, in LaTeX. I have
used "tabu" because it lets me set the width of the table easily. Honestly,
when I have a semi-complex table to create, I use MS Excel to create the
table the way I want it to look, then save it as a PDF and import that into
my document. It may seem like a lot of work; however, when you consider how
much time I end up wasting tying to configure a table to look exactly how I
want it to, it is far quicker to do it in Excel and import it into my LaTeX
