Someone was kind enough to loan me a copy of the new Microsoft Dynamics GP For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech)) book to review. I have to say that I found that the book provided surprisingly complete coverage of the core financial and distribution modules along with some interesting nuggets, such as coverage of the PSTL tools and brief coverage of Modifier. I found most of the advice to be right on including advice about not changing general journal information when posting through, void the sub-ledger transaction instead.It won't replace a good consultant of course. No book does a good enough job on the why behind the setup decisions you'll need to make. But as a Microsoft MVP for Dynamics GP I'm always happy to see something that makes things easier for users.My only quibble is that there was no coverage of the Journal Entry Correction functionality. It would have only taken an extra page or two in the book and seemed like a glaring omission given the coverage of other items in the book. But as I said, that's a quibble.I have to recommend this book for new users. It's cheap enough and and it's a much easier read than the GP manuals. Why can't software companies write user manuals this way?Mark Polino, CPA, Microsoft MVP Dynamics GP
I bought this for my work and my colleagues got more out of it than I did. They occasionally refer back to it when they have a question that may not warrant consulting with our GP vendor right away. I myself got it to learn more about the collections module, but unfortunately there's very little about it in this book. But I'm giving it 4 stars because it was really helpful to others at my work.
This is a good reference source for GP Dynamics and written with easy to follow steps. Each module has step by step instructions with screen shots. A good initial training tool for those wanting a clearer understanding of how GP works.
Let me say this; I am a beginning GP user. With that being said, I am also a technical support person. I found this book to be highly informative without boring me to death with a lot of technical and accounting descriptions. This book is great for someone who needs to get up to speed quickly! Microsoft Dynamics GP for Dummies highlights the most useful features and dispels common misconceptions.If you find yourself needing no nonsense information on how to use Microsoft GP, this is the book for you!
I'm an experienced IT person, but new to MS Great Plains accounting. I went to first and found this "for Dummies book." Mr. Bellu does an excellent job of getting one up to speed and perhaps, just a bit better than that. I heartily recommend this book for more experienced users as well as those new to the GP system. Great Plains accounting is an older, very full-featured accounting solution. With that range of features comes some complexity. Mr Bellu brings clarity and offers enough of the "under the hood" information to whet the appetite for more.Well Done!
This book not only helps me on my day to day questions in GP, but also assisted me in the entire implementation into my company. Very easy step by step instructions with actual freeze frames of what you will be looking at.
5 starsI'm a new user of Dynamics Great Plains. Here are some items I found helpful in this book:-There are lots of screen shots for the windows that are being discussed.-Several areas of step by step instructions tell the reader how to get things done.-The reader is given the chapter numbers in the GP manuals to turn to for more information. Users and IT people working with Great Plains will probably need more information to successfully use and implement this ERP software.-The part of tens (and other areas of the book as well) explains what to do, what not to do, and what to avoid when using and implementing Great Plains.I was looking for more info on the Modifier and Extender modules. These modules were briefly explained in Chapter 15. I was pleased to find out that Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) can be used to customize Dynamics GP. More customization examples would have been helpful.The book was well organized, and the author gives lots of good info on using this ERP software successfully.
It is good but this is the older version. I really need the new version but I don't think they have made one yet.
