The Barnes & Noble Review
With Microsoft Project 2002, Microsoft extends project management “downward,” making it simpler and more accessible -- and “upward,” with new tools for enterprise-wide planning and coordination. All these tools build on the core capabilities of Project 2002 Standard Edition. This book will help you master Project 2002 SE fast, via sample projects for a film production company -- projects that must integrate many resources on aggressive deadlines. Projects like yours.

Project 2002’s best improvement may be its wizardlike Project Guide, which walks you through setting up all project tasks, resources, tracking, and reporting. This book shows you exactly how to make the most of the Project Guide, as well as other new wizards that simplify collaboration, calendar creation, and other tasks. You’ll also find coverage of Project 2002’s significantly improved Office integration (import your Outlook task lists); Project Views; and automated email notification tools.

You won’t just learn the software: There’s a great overview of project management itself, as well as dozens of sidebars covering everything from bottom-up planning to assessing task durations. Finally: project management for mere mortals! (Bill Camarda)
