I had previously purchased Microsoft Office Step-By-Step and Microsoft Office Specialist Study Guide. I bought Word SBS along with Excel SBS, Access SBS, and PowerPoint SBS hoping that they would be more in depth for a novice user like myself who wants to build my skills and learn the intricacies of MS Office. Imagine my surprise, when after opening the CDs to all and loading them onto my computer, the exercises are the same as in the first two books I bought. They can't be sent back since the seal is broken on the disk packaging.

Apparently the easier concepts of Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint are collected into MS Office SBS and the more difficult concepts are collected into MS Office Specialist Study Guide.

On a good note, this series is easy to understand and not difficult to use. They really do provide step by step instructions.

However, I wish this series would allow the user to take a project from start to finish. I don't think just following the directions in the exercises has provided me with the skills to complete projects on my own.

The moral of this story is: If you are looking for a book to provide the basics of Word (and Excel, Access, PowerPoint), save your money and buy MS Office SBS and Office Specialist Study Guide. They are to only two books you really need. If you want books that provide more details or are more skill specific, look for something else.

I've been using Word 2000 for years. I was finally able to get most of thr functions I needed to work, but it was a "try & try again" approach. The on line manual is helpful, IF you know what questions to ask. And most software has features you might not be aware of, and therefore can't use.

The Word 2003 Step by Step manual is wonderful. You can find what you want to do easily in the index, then get step by step instructions on how to do the project. You can just read the index and/or manual, and learn of the many features available that you never knew existed, and so hadn't tried to use.

It's like having an instructor on hand, any time you want one. I expanded my use of Word greatly, just by learning about new features, on learning how to do things I knew existed, but couldn't figure out how to access.

I highly recommend this book.

As a Wordperfect user I bought this to brush up my skills on MS Word. The practice exercises are clear and well laid out. For just $16 and a few hours of my weekend I came away with a few shortcuts.

I like these books since I am computer challenged and it tells me what to do in simple terms to arrive where I want to be without all the distracting, unnecessary jargon that is in other books.
I would recommend this book to a friend.

This book tells you exactly what you need to know for the exam. I was able to concentrate on the proper information without worry. I passed the exam first time :D

For one who is computer-illiterate, I need a handy help. I used it over and over. Alas, Word 2003 has given way to 2007.

Good book, but not very entertaining, software are not my specialty so I found hard to use this manual. Also I bought this book already used, and received it in a really good shape, and I liked the fact that, there was a CD-rom inside, completely new.

I bought this book as they didn't print "The Missing Manual" for this series of Microsoft Office. The Missing Manual series is the best user manuals on the market.
