Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Step-by-step instructions, a lack of extraneous information, and ample screen shots make this title useful for both new Mac users and those upgrading from earlier versions of Office (for Mac or PC). The author addresses how OS X's Aqua interface has changed the appearance of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Entourage's tool bar icons, dialog boxes, and alerts. The task-based layout also allows readers to locate quickly needed instructions, and the last two chapters on combining applications will be especially valuable to users accustomed to working with only one program. Recommended; larger public libraries should expect demand, given Mac's recent resurgence, thanks in part to the Aqua interface. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
