    Best and Most Comprehensive Resources Available

    This is by far the most comprehensive resource for using OpenProj. It provide a simplified overview of general project management principles followed by clear step-by-step directions to their implementation using the OpenProj software. The end of chapter review questions provide an excellent way to asses your understanding and the comprehensive index makes finding specific tips and procedures quick and easy. The author's style, neither too technical nor insultingly oversimplified, is effective for both academic and professional settings. If you're looking for a definitive guide to OpenProj (or its fork - ProjectLibre) this is the one.
