Bought this book to study OUTLOOK 2010 as I went from an older version of OUTLOOK (without the ribbon). Since I had been using OUTLOOK for many years, I just needed to learn the changes and where the commands resided with the ribbon. With the help of this book, just reading it one night, and then the next day installing OUTLOOK 2010, I was ready to go! Everything went great without even a hiccup and I was able to get into OUTLOOK 2010 and get everything I needed to setup in no time with the help of this superb book! I was able to install my email accounts, and since I had my existing contacts already on my Windows Phone 6.5 with Outlook, I simply synced the contacts into my OUTLOOK 2010 PC in minutes! Then I added appointments into my laptop and then synced them into my phone! Have been doing this every day with no problems at all! This is a PERFECT version of OUTLOOK and this book has been such a help. It is perfect for reference and I have been referring to it when needed. One more thing that I will add is this: The Microsoft Step by Step Series, I have bought and referred to for many years--especially when I purchase a updated version to a software such as MS Office, Outlook and more. I have found that these books have the easiest to follow instructions in the business! A highly recommended book!
