    This is only my third Amazon review. I normally don't take the time to write reviews, although I do appreciate the people who do and often base my buying decisions on them.

    I purchased the physical (not Kindle) version of the book and purchased based on the glowing reviews by "Vine" members and the fact that a purchase would give me access to 3 hours of video content.

    I followed the instructions in the book to register at the Que website. I created an account and confirmed my email.

    I then went to the link given to access the videos. No videos. It takes me to a page to create a Que subscription for $19.99/month for 10 books or $49.99/month for all their books.

    I went back to check the account information to see if there was something I missed and found a "coupon code."

    Okay, I thought, this must give me access to the videos. I entered the coupon on the subscription page and, sure enough, "Using OneNote 2010 video content" showed up.

    Solved, I thought, so I then clicked to access the content.

    Nope. Got an "Error Message" - I must chose either the $19.99 or the $49.99 account to continue.

    I then went back to the reviews and noticed a lot of others who have had the same problem. Only "Vine" reviewers have gotten to see the "hidden" videos.

    Unfortunately, it is past the 30 day limit for me to return this book.

    I think Que is being deceptive in their advertising by saying the video content. It isn't. You have to subscribe to their service.

    Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
    A well written book covering topics for both beginners and those with more advanced skills. I have been using OneNote since it was first launched and there are many things I picked up in this book.

    Another reviewer mentioned the videos. While I have the paperback book, I don't think the Kindle edition would be different. In the introduction on page 3 is the link to register the book and gain access to the videos.

    The videos are the author doing screen casts - these are not high quality videos like This is not a knock, this is just a different style but they work well. Its a nice compliment to the book and I am glad they are available as a companion to the written text.

    The one chapter missing from the book are tips and tricks for organization. I would like to hear about some suggestions for how to best organize my data.

    If you are on Windows and use Outlook, Word and such, then this book is a good investment.

    Format: Paperback
    Let's focus on the results.
    In the three weeks since I received the book, I came from being a newbie to a strong user of OneNote 2010.
    Not trivial, if you consider that:
    a) I do not have much free time to put into the effort and
    b) I had been struggling for over a year to find practical uses for OneNote.
    I had the feeling that OneNote held a valuable prize inside, but I didn't have the key to open it.

    Now let's go to the activities.
    The book starts at the very beginning, and slowly builds block by block from there.
    Again ... sounds trivial, but it isn't.
    During the first chapters I felt it was a bit too slow, but I had made my mind to read the full text in its proper order, do all the exercises and review all the videos.
    The book holds no surprises, no emotions.
    The voice in the videos is clear and precise, if a little boring too.

    But then, I found that I had been learning new things.
    By the time I closed Chapter Three, I could picture several practical uses for the tool, and by the end of Chapter Five I was already using OneNote to keep my notes on real life projects, and I was collecting phone numbers, addresses and important links that I had collected in paper cards, notebooks and computer files.

    Please note that I received a free copy of the book in exchange for my review.
    No strings attached.

    Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    Que's "Using Microsoft OneNote 2010" promises to give you a comfort level with all of the tasks that you can complete with that tool. Our company recently upgraded to Office 2010 including OneNote and many people were unfamiliar with what that program could do for them. This book does a good job in the first few chapters explaining the basics to someone who has never even heard of OneNote before (and also has fairly basic PC skills as well). However, it never progresses anywhere beyond that despite the additional verbiage. I was hoping that the pace would contine and I would learn some interesting use cases for OneNote that I could share with co-workers - real time-savers and productivity builds made possible by OneNote. Unfortunately, the book instead gets bogged down in minutiae like formatting and appearance that don't really add to any specific knowledge about OneNotes.

    I haven't attempted to use the video content that was included with the book based on others' frustrations with accessing them. Plus, there are plenty of more full-featured video tutorials readily available online (just search YouTube or go to without any risk of hassle.

    The writing and explanation is clear and well-done, making this book a good buy for anyone who has no background with OneNote as all; however, for anyone wanting a deeper dive into practical uses of OneNote, this one doesn't have it.
