    Easy to follow

    This book was a very easy to read manual. I am learning MS Project 2010 Beta so not every step was exactly the same as MS Project 2007 but close enough for me to figure out what I needed to do to complete the exercises. The book comes with an instructional CD on the inside back cover that has lessons to guide you thru learning the different functions of MS Project 2007. There are clear instructions with diagrams and photos of what each screen should look like once you have completed each step. I highly recommend this user manual to anyone who has never used MS Project 2007 before.
