Special Edition Using Microsoft® Office 2007

THE ONLY OFFICE BOOK YOU NEED

 

We crafted this book to grow with you, providing the reference material you need as you move toward Office proficiency and use of more advanced features. If you buy only one book on Office 2007, Special Edition Using Microsoft® Office 2007 is the only book you need.

 

If you own a copy of Office 2007, you deserve a copy of this book! Although this book is aimed at the Office veteran, Ed and Woody's engaging style will appeal to beginners, too. Written in clear, plain English, readers will feel as though they are learning from real humans and not Microsoft clones. Sprinkled with a wry sense of humor and an amazing depth of field, this book most certainly isn't your run-of-the-mill computer book. You should expect plenty of hands-on guidance and deep but accessible reference material.

 

This isn't your Dad's Office! For the first time in a decade, Microsoft has rolled out an all-new user interface. Menus? Gone. Toolbars? Gone. For the core programs in the Office family, you now interact with the program using the Ribbon-an oversize strip of icons and commands, organized into multiple tabs, that takes over the top of each program's interface. If your muscles have memorized Office menus, you'll have to unlearn a lot of old habits for this version.

 

Ed Bottis an award-winning computer journalist and one of the most widely recognized voices in the computing world, with nearly two decades of experience as a writer and editor at leading magazines, such as PC World, PC Computing, and Smart Business. Ed has written many of Que's all-time bestsellers, including Special Edition Using Office 2000, Special Edition Using Windows 98, and Special Edition Using Windows Me.

 

Curmudgeon, critic, and perennial “Office Victim,”Woody Leonhardruns the fiercely independent AskWoody.com website with up-to-the-nanosecond news, observations, tips and help for both Office and Windows. In the past 15 years, Woody has written more than three dozen books, drawing an unprecedented six Computer Press Association awards and two American Business Press awards. Woody was one of the first Microsoft Consulting Partners and is a charter member of the Microsoft Solutions Provider organization.

I have to learn Office 2007 enough to teach it, and there aren't many books out yet for it. The Special Edition series is one that I use for a desktop reference for several programs, and this one goes with them. It's clear, not cute or condescending, has good content, and is easy to refer to with questions. It's a good book to keep on hand as you learn Office 2007.

Ed & Woody have turned out another extememly valuable reference text for Microsoft's Office series. I bought the upgrade to Office but would not install it until I could read some of the text to see what I should be aware of after installation. I'm glad I did. The change in file systems is definitely something that anyone upgrading should know about.

I highly recommend the book.

Format: Paperback
I don't have Office 2007 yet, but I bought this book because as soon as it's available I'll start getting questions about it. At first glance, just from reading this book not actually trying things out, it appears that there are three big changes in Office 2007.

First is the Ribbon. Microsoft has specialized in graphical user interfaces (GUI). 'THE RIBBON' is Microsoft's new standard for GUI's and have been applied across all of the office products. I think it's better from what the book says, but boy is it going to cause a lot of questions.

Second is Security. Internally this is probably the biggest changes. There's a new Office Trust Center. It's not as pretty as the other packages (but it does have a ribbon). It's a new feature within office, it will get prettier and easier to use in future versions.

The third big set of changes is in sharing documents as you work on them. This is part of Microsoft's approach to the enterprise market rather than personal productivity. Let's just say that this will be a challenge.

Why this particular book? The authors and their writing style. They make reading about computers almost entertaining. And they are not Microsoft, so they can make comments about how things really work rather than just praising everything.

One complaint -- About ten more pages on Access would be a big help. A list of reserved words for instance, which are rather hard to find. And some brief discussion on using Access with SQL Server.

All in all, there are (or will be) a lot of books on Office 2007. I like these guy's style.

I've been using office for as long as Microsoft had it. This is a good book that let me quickly familiarize myself with whatever was added in this version.

Took me about 3 days to thumb-through and take notes. I come back to this book now as a reference every once in a while.

Overall, I highly recommend this book to everyone, beginner to pro. Though, possibly, this book might be a little tough on the beginner.

If you are upgrading to Office 2007 from an earlier version of Office this book is a great help. Microsoft has made a number of changes in where basic tools are located and how to access them. This book makes the learning process a lot simpler and a lot quicker. However, I don't recommend you try to read the book cover-to-cover in one sitting. It is the thickness of a New York phone book. The Index at the back of the book is well done and is a good way to problem-solve individual issues.

The book seems well written, but not quite as detailed as I need. I see that I will need to buy the Using Word 2007 to get as much detail as I want. Still, this book gives a great overview of the whole suite and probably has a much info as most users will want.

Every "Using" book I own (more than a dozen) has been valuable, well written and packed with good information. This is no exception. The authors know Office. I started with Word and quickly absorbed the "flavor" of the new interface. This book will cut my frustration time dramatically.

Microsoft Office 2007 Simplified

This is a book that is very easy to read. I have learned a lot about Office from reading it. I find that it is most useful as a reference book when I get in trouble.I have always solved the problem when I use it as a reference book.
