I have used Powerpoint extensively since the first edition and know it better than most -- and I have alwasy been able to easilly adapt to the latest version. This one is DIFFERENT -- and that's an understatement. Most will think, as did I, that MS screwed up a good program. But there is genius to the new "ribbon approach" - once you get used to it. You will need focus, patience and a helper, like the "Dummies" guide. I wish they had better titles, because having it sitting next to your desk makes YOU feel like a Dummy ... bet get over it, get the book and it will speed up your transition to the new version significantly. Could have had a bit more on the "power-features" but definitely worth the money.

I have read many differnt areas of this book and have found the author to be both entertaining and simple to understand. This book is not one you read from front to back it is designed to be used to look up certain areas of interest in using PowerPoint. I find this book covers the program very well and helps give pointers on how to use your PowerPoints with Microsoft Producer for creating Videos for the Web. I would recomment this book for those who want to go deeper into the program.

"I received the best compliment when I met with my previous firm on a teaming meeting. I was asked who did my slides? I was notorious for having lousy slide decks. This book has come in very handy over the last 6 months while I was at Devis to put together a series of various slides: Step Reviews, BD Meeting decks with forecast, teaming discussion meetings to discuss actual opportunities. Lots of secrets in this book."

Miles better than Microsoft's turgid "Step by Step." The flippant asides are unnecessary, for my taste, but Lowe writes clear, direct prose, and anticipates the standard questions and difficulties. I learned more in one hour with this than in three with Microsoft's doorstop of a manual.

The book provides good information though it is a little light in details, you have try something based on them telling you what it will do but don't illustrate it very well. It did answer my immediate needs though and probably worth the money

I worked with the book until I was confident and took a test to get a job and scored a 98%. I rate the product excellent learning tool. The only thing is the previous owner deleted a few of the lessons, so I had the product the lessons myself that I did not like.

This "dummy" found PP for Dummies 2007 easy to use and was able to learn a great deal more than I thought possible. My primary reason for needing to learn PP quickly was my 3rd grader (yes, only 8!) had to do a presentation on a geographic location, and while this is not hard core business CEO level stuff, it still needed to be done well. Not only was I able to absorb the main concepts, but my daughter caught on quicker than I.

I was able to get through many years of schooling without even needing to touch a computer, but as we all know, this isn't true for our students any longer. I am very glad PP for Dummies is around for "old schoolers" like me.
