Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Office 2007 is different. (For one thing, who stole the menus and toolbars?!?) If you're upgrading, yesterday's help resources won't do the job anymore. Thankfully, Office 2007 For Dummies is here, just in time to help you master Office's new essentials quickly and painlessly.

Right up front, Wallace Wang makes sure you're comfortable with Office 2007's new suite-wide interface: the Ribbon, which organizes Office's commands more sensibly; the Office Button, which centralizes everything you can do with Office files, from opening them to publishing them; and the Quick Access Toolbar, which offers one-click access to the commands you always need (Save, Undo, and so forth). You'll learn how to use that new interface to edit data (of any kind); then learn how to get answers from Office 2007's Help system (yes, it's been overhauled again).

Next, Wang offers concise, friendly, three-chapter introductions to each of Office's core applications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access. Drawing on his experience with multiple previous editions of this book, Wang's done an excellent job of focusing on the skills "typical" users really need.

No, he won't teach you to build that custom hedge fund investment analysis application you've always dreamed of. But you will learn some very handy skills. Like how to copy formatting from one part of a Word document to another. Or how to specify a goal in Excel, and let Excel "seek" the value you need to meet it. Or how to turn the same PowerPoint presentation into custom slide shows for multiple audiences. Good, useful techniques that most Office users still don't know -- but you will. Bill Camarda, from the January 2007 Read Only

    General Information

    I was primarily interested in learning Power Point. However, instead of purchasing a reference on just PP, I decided to buy this reference that covered all of Office 2007. It gave a good overview and in conjunction with the online tutorial (which is very good)I was able to accomplish what I wanted.

    Office 2007 for DUMMIES

    This is another in the series that seems cover the "waterfront" in a very readable manner. They have determined what is important for the user who is not a professional. This has been developed into a "science" that I have found to be useful and helpful.
