Covers most of what you need.
Would have liked to see the central server covered better.
They really do go through things step by step.
Covers the basics VERY thoroughly.
Like so many other books in the award winning and first rate Step-by-Step series, Project 2000 has been taken down to the end-user level and you are the recipients of one of the best hands-on and self paced course books on the market today.
16 lessons encompass the 400 plus page learning material and best of all you work at your pace until you understand it. Quick reference tips are included and each lesson has a wrap up to review the material covered in the lesson.
The book includes real world examples so what you learn can be applied as you learn. Also there is a cd-rom with all necessary practice files and if you don't own Project 2000 the cd includes an evaluation version. Microsoft has thought of everything...Another winner for Microsoft and Microsoft Press.
I didn't give it 5 stars as there were a few minor errors (maybe 5 total) in the text, or very confusing transitions in the instructions.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is either new to Project, or has used it but is not sure of themselves. I'm thinking of going through the book again, just to reiterate the lessons.
Easy to read and follow the writers. You don't feel lost in this book. One reason for that is the screenshots (perfect) and little pictures besides the text. for example when the book says "click on Go to selected task" you can see the icon of that feature right besides the text. If you never, ever used MS Project that saves time - you don't need to read every screentip.
In overall, you can learn from this book and use it as a reference after that. But after couple projects, I believe you will be an expert of what is written in the book. Just for beginners, as I said, and for the MS Project Core exam.
Co-authored by a Project Management Institute certified "Project Management Professional," which in my experience as an IT project management consultant is a first for any MS Project books since the program appeared a decade ago, Microsoft Project 2000 Step by Step can be a very reliable introduction for those who are new to project management techniques and software. For experts who actually track the projects they've created in MS Project, there are tips on new features such as the Responsible Manager assignment on tasks allocated to several resources.
