Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Osborne's new "QuickSteps" series targets complete beginners with full-color, screen shot-heavy, step-by-step instructions on the most common tasks in each of these programs. Tabbed, color-coded chapters help readers navigate, many screen shots include labels for common functions, tips and notes add extra info, and unfamiliar terms are defined in text. Excel covers "both basic (opening and saving workbooks) and complex tasks (working with PivotTables), relying heavily on wizards for more complicated features. Access begins by explaining the basic options in the database window and then moves through more complex tasks such as modifying print jobs and creating cross-tab queries. Unfortunately, some items are explained only in passing-e.g., installing security updates-and therefore may be intimidating to beginners. PowerPoint dives into creating or opening presentations, moves through additional features from speaker notes to using clip art, and ends with different printing options. Outlook starts by discussing importing data from Outlook Express, which new users are likely to do, and ends with more complex features like mail merge and using Outlook with PDAs. The authors include a useful note on email viruses and security and a suggestion about installing third-party antivirus software-all new users should take note. These handy additions to your Office 2003 collection (see also Computer Media, LJ 2/1/04) are solid choices for libraries serving novice computer users; purchase to supplement more comprehensive guides and where series like "Easy" (QUE) and "Teach Yourself Visually" (Wiley) are popular.
