As with all the Dummies books, it's cleverly written with wit and easy to find info with the layout and diagrams.
with a new computer and I needed help keeping up with the new
user interface and the newer capabilities of the program.
This book has worked out really well. I was able to quickly find
answers to a proglem that I needed to solve right away: how to
set the headers and footers on a document. It was easy to see how
when I read only a couple of pages in the book.
I continue to be pleased with how thorough the Word 2013 For Dummies
is. It is very well written and it is comprehensive and yet clear and
simple enough. Every software program should include a manual
Well worth every penny!
The author points this out (as if I hadn't already discovered this!) in such a humorous way that you can't help but laugh out loud.
I've yet to find the time to read it all, but I'm really going to need it shortly for a project I need to complete, so I'm really glad I bought this book!
