Was very let down by quality of printing though. Book is Printed On Demand (POD), and is very easily recognizable as that. Blacks vary between pages, resolution not high enough for font used with fine strokes becoming messy. Already had the e-book and decided I wanted the real thing, but honestly in this instance I would have been happy sticking with the e-book.
Part One: Project Management - like a mini-manual on Project Management basics, explaining what projects are, why managing them is a good idea, how to pick projects and obtain support, and quick tour of planning a project.
Part Two: Project Planning, More than Creating a Schedule - starts with a quick test drive of MSProject, then goes thru aspecs of planning including breaking work down, estimating work and duration, assigning resources to tasks and setting up a budget, then how to refine a schedule and prepare it for the execution phase of the project.
Part Three: Projects in Action - explain how to track progres, evaluate that progress, correct course and manage changes, generate reports and steps at the end of the project.
Part Four: Project Power Tools - talk about how to work on more than one project and how to share data with other (Microsoft) programs and people.
Part Five: Customizing Project- explains how to customize MS Project confguration, including the ribbon, use templates, and use macros.
Part Six: Appendices - three appendixes provide guides on how to install Project, reverence to hwlp resources, and a quick review of keyboard shortcuts.
I appreciated the frequently inserted boxes of tip on themes like "Tools of the Trade", "Up to Speed", Reality Check", etcetera to help clarify the meaning and usage.
I was self-taught though.
This book explains the ins, outs, quirks and workarounds that I came up with or Googled.
Excellent resource to have at your desk.
If you need to learn Microsoft Project, look no further. The Missing Manual line is known for its high quality products, and this one fits the bill. My only caveat is that I wish there was some color in the book to spice things up, but it's not essential.
