As PowerPoint has gotten more complicated with each new release, the need increases for someone to explain well what are the key points. Like this book, for instance. It would also go well if you like green, for the pages are decorated in various shades of that colour. The lessons systematically walk you through the main aspects of making a presentation package. Perhaps more important is that the examples are good templates of effective layout. The bulk of the text is about how to use PowerPoint to get these results. Of course, you need this information. But you should also pay attention to the resultant images. These have a nice balance of text and images that might be worth emulating in your work. Plus, if you are at all inclined, the review questions and answers for each chapter are a good test of your understanding.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
