I found this book lacking in too many details about the ins and outs of Outlook 2010. As one critical example, the book sorely lacked detailed how-to information about editing and manipulating the ribbon, a major feature of the program. Overall, this book has too many pages and too little information.
I needed a refresher course in Outlook because I haven't used it much since being laid off from my job three years ago. I recently started a new job and this book came in very handy. The program came back to me quickly thanks to this book. It was easy to find the information I needed and everything is explained perfectly. This book is a must-have for anyone learning the program for the first time or for people like me who need to brush up on the it. A real bargain too.
Macros and VBA offer the real potential for using Office to it's magnificent potential. But it is a difficult subject and not particularly one that I thought could be captured by a "Dummies" book. the author does a great job of laying out the concepts of VBA and the macro view screens in Excel. I would still need some clarification of syntax to do any useful programming but this book is an excellent introduction.
This is my outlook 2010 bible. It has all the info needed to run outlook 2010. ALL THE INFO. No need to buy several books. This one has it all and is easy to understand.
There's a ton of information about a multi-ton product. More information about Business Contact Manager would help. Sharing between computers is more complicated than indicated. And form customization needs much more explanation.
Probably a great book, but I couldn't make sense of it. the classic "For Dummies" look is obliterated in the Kindle format. All the headings are reduced to normal typeface, there aren't even spaces between the sections. It's impossible to tell where a section starts or ends. Using this huge book as a reference is impossible without these visual cues. I would have been fine with bold headings or large headings. I don't need the funny font "For Dummies" uses, but I need something.Don't get this book on Kindle!
It's a little too big and when I went in to look for "delete e-mails" I couldn't find anything. There's lot of verbage, but l little in the way of making it MORE SIMPLE to understand.
Sometimes revenge is sweet, now it's my turn....My other computer (Win XP) runs OE just fine but this new computer's Outlook 2010is driving me nuts trying to learn the BASIC stuff that is easy to learn with OE.They finally get to working with addresses on page 108. A contact folder was mademanually but when I go to send an e mail, I can't find the e mail address list.This monster of a book is like a firedrill gone bad in China. Totally confusing just likeG Mail and all the rest written up by geeks. I want a simple program a 68 year old canunderstand. My XP computer is back from the shop but I can't connect to the provider.Anyone know about routers?James Hill
