Being new to any Microsoft Office product, when I purchased Office 2007, I was pretty lost. Microsoft's on-line tutorials were useless, so I purchased Office 2007 for Dummies, thinking I would use it mostly as a reference. It was so well written and easy to understand, I actually read the entire book, and am looking forward to using Publisher and Power Point (I initially purchased Office for Word and Excel). I found working with Office 2007 easy after reading this book, and have had to utilize the book as a reference very minimally. Utilizing the table of contents and index, I can quickly locate what I am looking for. I am sure this book saved me hours of frustration by laying out the concept behind the Office 2007 design, and showing me how to quickly hunt for commands that I know are there (from reading about them in the book). I am sure my learning time was greatly reduced. Great job Peter Werverka!

The biggest changes in Office 2007 seem to be the new GUI (Graphical User Interface) which Microsoft calls the Ribbon. This is a complete change from the earlier GUI which we have all come to know and love. The Ribbon organizes the commands into what Microsoft calls contextual tabs. Each tab has a logical grouping of commands. This is not unlike the way you used to click on the Edit or View command and then got a list of commands, but in 2007 there are far more commands that you can reach without having to go to subsidiary menus.

The Ribbon is, of course, the result of many hours of definition, testing before audiences and of course a lot of programming effort. There's the old saying that 'user friendly is programmer difficult.' The ribbon is a common interface that is used in all of the Office applications, so learning about it is mandatory for using Office 2007.

Of course there are an awful lot of new features added to each of the applications. It's easier to get a 'Live Preview' of what you are doing in word. It's easier to do Pivot Tables in Excel, and so on. These applications have been around so long that they are not getting big massive upgrades. I frankly don't know what more they could add. ==Of course this is a 'For Dummies' book. This means that the writing is good, the proof reading catches all the mispellings, and there's even a bit of humor.

There are two Office 2007 For Dummies books. This is the bigger, Desk Reference, version, that is about twice as long as the other one. Part of this is because this book covers Publisher 2007 as well as the other software. Part of this is because each subject is covered in a bit more depth. My honest selection is that you buy both books.

The Office 2007 All-In-One Desk Reference for Dummies is very helpful for someone trying to weather the transition from previous versions of Microsoft Office to the new Microsoft Office 2007. This book not only covers common office applications, but gets into more detail for each program (Word, Outlook, Excel, Access, etc.) I would highly recommend this book to anyone who needs an easy-to-follow guide to the new software.

I don't consider myself a "dummie" but this was the 1st book of the dummies series that I have purchased. I purchased it to get acquainted with the new features in Office 2007.

I like the fact that the book has so much information on all the programs in Office 2007; tips, reminders, and warnings.

I won't sit and read the entire book but see using it as I take on projects using the new programs. I did not purchase the on-line version but I am considering that option so I can access the information even when I am at school/work.

Format: Paperback
Office 2007 All-in-one mostly is an introduction to all the various components of Microsoft Office. This is a 9 in 1 at less than 900 pages so it doesn't go into any depth on any one subject.

Don't buy this one if you're looking for a in depth book - this isn't it. It spends a fair amount of time introducing

Word
Excel
Access
PowerPoint
Outlook
Publisher
OneNote
SharePoint

Recommended if you're looking for a starting point with Office 2007 but not otherwise.

[[ASIN:0471782793 Office 2007 All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies (For Dummies Series)]I need to replace my 5 year old computor and decide if Office 2007 could function well with Windows XP on a new computer or also require buying the newest Microsoft operating system.So I invested in 'Office 2007 for Dummies'. It's wonderful! I have already decided that Office 2007 is absolutely necessary. This great book evaluates and explains all the improvemnt over Office 2003. It is well organized by major sections so it is easy to find information on whichever function is the most important question you have in mind. Each section starts with basics and follows with detailed information. I started with the basics: Word and Excel and then was intrigued by the sections covering the great new capabilities in Office 2007. Writing is clear and logical. It will be helpful for newbies, experienced users and experts. The Index and the logical organization of chapters make it easy to locate any information needed easily. This publication will be of continuing value to any user as they explore the many many new and useful feature covered in this great tool.
