Like the other reviewers have said up to this point this is a great book. As the cover say it is Plain and Simple. So if you're looking for something that will teach you Microsoft Office inside out then you should look to another book. This book will help you to get a basic understanding of how to use each of the Office Professional 2010 applications. There is more emphasis placed on Word, Excel and power-point than the rest. The other programs Outlook, Publisher, One-note, Access and just a general overview of how the programs work together compose the lesser portion of the book. I think that it gives and adequate coverage of the applications.I Enjoy the very colorful pages that it has. It helps to make the learning go by faster. Basically the book is screen shots bullet points showing you exactly how to do things. If you are new to any of the programs you could get this book and it will help you have a good enough knowledge to increase your productivity. I have never used outlook before and this worked it out beautifully. I got my emails all set up and and my schedule all good. This program has wonderful organization helps and it looks beautiful too.Pros:Very colorful, pictures and great labeling.Simple well thought-out explanations on how to do basic, commonly used tasks in all the Microsoft office professional edition.Good index and table of contents helps user to quickly locate what they want when they want.Overall book flow is great.Book can be read from start to finish or picked up in selected locations so that the user can understand virtually any part without reading what has came before it.Great price for what you get.Cons:Possibly too brief of an overview for some of the programs.
I borrowed this book at my public library and liked it so much at the current price on that I bought my own copy. Microsoft Office 2010 Plain & Simple enhances the suite. The built-in and online Help systems and the many online help forums available for Office 2010 are great resources for figuring out the minutiae of the software, but this manual gives you the essential overview that you miss unless you spend a lot of relatively inefficient time exploring the "Getting Started" section of the built-in Help system, something I rarely do.PROS:Shows you how to use the programs in your Office 2010 suite and demonstrates features you didn't even know you wanted until the book highlighted them for you. Shows you how the programs in your suite interact with one another. There's a reason it's designed as a suite, but some folks never move beyond using limited features and programs in isolation. Has lots of tips and tricks to speed your work and make your Office 2010 output grab the viewer's eye.Has labeled color illustrations showing exactly how to quickly locate and execute the command sequence being discussed, as you can see from 's illustrations from the book. I hate it when other software instructions tell me to click this or click that, when the main problem is that I can't find what I'm supposed to click in the software. Extremely aggravating! That doesn't happen with this book,Pitched at just the right level. Doesn't talk down to the reader and assume someone new to computers or Windows, but also doesn't assume Office expertise. Avoids the annoying, distracting humor(??) of some other third-party software help manuals. Has a detailed Index in the back.
