Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Visio is hugely popular -- and especially valuable -- in certain professions. Engineering and architecture. Project and process management. Software and database development. Network design and management. If you're in one of these professions, you don't just want to learn how Visio works "in general." You want to use it in specific ways, to get your job done better and faster. Is that too much to ask from a Visio book? Not if it's Visio 2007 Bible.

This book's author, Bonnie Biafore, is that rare individual with professional experience in architecture, engineering, project management, and software development (not to mention Visio, of course). Having been around the block, she knows what you're looking for, and she delivers it.

If you're an architect or engineer, Biafore teaches you how to work with (and manage) scaled drawings. She walks you through laying out plans, integrating Visio with CAD systems, and working with engineering drawings. If you're an IT professional, you'll find chapters on modeling and documenting databases; creating UML models; mapping web sites, and diagramming networks. And if you're a manager, you'll master all the org charts, process diagrams, and flowcharts your heart could possibly desire. There are even chapters on documenting brainstorming sessions, and analyzing business results with Visio 2007's smokin' new PivotDiagrams.

As you learn all this deeply relevant stuff, you'll walk away with skills you can take into other areas if need be. And this just might be the case. One day you're a software developer, next day you're helping to redesign business processes. One day you're an engineer, next day you're a product manager plotting out trade show booths. That's the world you live in -- and that's the world this book's been written for. Bill Camarda, from the May 2007 Read Only
