Well, I reluctantly purchased this book before my computer class... then realized later that the spiral version I received did NOT come with the SAM software, which was REQUIRED for my class... so I had to drop an extra $85 on the key code (yes, just some numbers) I was under the assumption this book had everything I needed for this course, but I was disappointed that it did not.

That aside, this book was VERY informative... even though I was already familiar with Word, it really helped me understand other areas of Office as well. I definitely picked up a handful of new things along the way and I'm glad to have this book in my library for future reference for myself or my wife!

It definitely is a thorough textbook. I am sure if anyone is taking a class this is a perfect textbook for them. I really wanted more of a reference book on the new MS Office 2010, where I could look something up and see clear explanation of how to proceed and learn from it. I'm not satisfied with the book for what I need, but it certainly is full of examples with questions, quizzes, and I'm sure a great workbook for class.

This book is the best if you want/need step by step instructions on how to use Office. I recommend this book to anyone who is a beginner or advance. You will learn things you never knew existed with this software. I recommend it highly. shipping was fast too. Best price around. It was cheaper than the college book store by me. If you need a good text book, buy this.

Format: Paperback
I'm a Professor of Computer Science and when I have had to teach Microsoft Office, the Shelly Cashman series has always been the easiest way to teach the various parts of Office (Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint). The chapters guide you through the task of creating or modifying the various documents. At the end of each chapter is a series of Exercises called "In The Lab" that give you the opportunity to practice the skills that you have just been taught.

One can argue that their choice of what is important may not match yours, but I have found that they cover in the introductory book the most basic and most important skills and work their way up from there. Why anyone would use any other book for learning - or teaching Office is beyond me.

Excellent for introduction to MS 2010--better for users with prior experience as it is densely written and for a newby a bit overwhelming. If you have been using MS and need a intro to new user interface and where to find what--the exercises will teach you that and fill in any knowledge gaps you may have had in other MS features. We will certainly use frequently as a resource.

I'm an experienced user of Office suites including 2010, but needed an updated "Intro" class to complete an AAS. This book would be my choice, were I training others in use of Office 2010. Get the spiral bound version - it'll lay flat, and even permit rolling passed pages to the back of current text, important if your school's workstations are like mine, with about as much space for your book and notepad as an economy-class airline seat's seat-back tray. The companion website was perfectly synchronized with the exercises at the ends of all chapters.
