    easy learning

    Microsoft Word has been with us for over 10 years. Naturally, with each revision, more features are added. So where do you start learning? Well, this book breaks down the effort into small lessons. A single lesson does not seem that hard. The lessons are also buttressed by a review and quiz (with answers) at the end of each chapter. Hopefully, you should not find anything too difficult here. MS Word fundamentally deals with stuff (text and images) that are WYSIWIG. Relatively few abstractions. The lessons have the virtue that you can perform an operation and usually see its effect immediately in front of you. The most advanced and abstract idea is at the end - writing and running macros. A chance at programming! Any of you programmer types will dig this. Though what you can fully do with macros is only hinted at.
