Each chapter presents the tasks and functionality in a visually way. This is done by presenting screenshots, with step by step instructions on how to do a certain task, on the side of the screen shot. Every 2 (opponent) pages presents a particular task in this way. For someone completely new to MS Office this is like sitting at your computer and having a personal instructor guiding you step by step.
If you are already familiar with MS Office 2003 or 2007, you may not need this book. You probably be able to use MS office 2010 without it. MS Office 2010 will feel very familiar to you, and you probably just need some time to learn your way around. Pretty soon you'll be up to what you were doing in 2003 and/or 2007. This book also does not particularly show what's new in 2010 compared to 2007. It does mention a few but does not particularly point them out. So you'd probably find this in the MS Office 2010 tutorial it self (or the help function). Still, this book would be handy as a guideline, in case you would want to reassure yourself that you are not overlooking anything or as a reference book. You would go very fast through it.Read more ›
The visuals in the book are extremely helpful and simplistic enough for anyone to grasp. It made it much easier to learn about how each step by step instruction really worked. Between the clear cut writing and the visuals this book is a perfect instructional book for anyone seeking to learn more about Microsoft office.
I love books that instruct but are easy to follow and thorough. It contains all you need to become a very adept Microsoft Office user as well as covering every facet in the program. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
I highly recommend it.
instructions for solving problems. I prefer to have the info right in front of me in a book
while I go through the instructions. This has it all.
