This book, LIKE ALL OTHERS in the Shelly Cashman Series, does not teach you any useful methods or commands for the product they are trying to 'teach'
Nooooo, they have to spend 4 pages at a time on such tasks as...telling you how to open a freaking document, or move the mouse over a button, or even worse...CLICK THE BUTTON! complete with screenshots!
I do not reccomend these books for any individual or accedemic institute, simply because A) They don't allow you to think, just follow lame instructions and B) The 'concepts and techniques' they are teaching just are not usefull. There are so many other books that allow students to learn so much more, so I don't know why people bother with these expensive, lame books.
