    Highly Recommended

    It was such a nice experience of having a copy of "Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010: Step by Step", I really enjoyed reading it, usually it was hard to follow the example on the book step by step, but after I logon to the Safari and read the book on-line and opened the SharePoint Designer on my dual monitor next to each other it was amazing and I learned things so much faster than I used to. I just felt there is no need to have training in the classes as long as I have one of your "Step by Step ." books handy.
    Also at the end of each chapter I found the "Key Points" were very helpful, after I finished reading each chapter I didn't have to search things that were not very clear to me, and "Key Points" section was able to help very review and remember all details.
    After this first "Step by Step" I had ever had I will check out all other series to catch up the new tech and improve my technical skill from now on and thank you very much.
