    Great Book

    It is easy to use. It takes you from beginner to intermedaite level. Colorful images. Simple words. It is what you need if you are a computer instructor or a self-learner.

    Colorful, but VERY MESSY

    They try to introduce color pages to stand out from other PowerPoint Books. The problem of the setup of the book is how messy and cluttered each page is. Also, it does not give you actual examples to do like given in PowerPoint 2003 Step by Step. Coming from a beginner, you will forget EASILY how to do certain things.
