    Great book for those just learning how to use Office Home and Student 2007

    The material is very descriptive and easy to follow. The explanations are direct and clear for individuals who have very little knowledge of Micropsoft Office 2007. I would recommend this book to both first time user and those who have used earlier versions of Microsoft Office Home and Student.
