4.0 out of 5 stars Practical guide March 28 2011
I found Microsoft Project 2010: The Missing Manual a refreshing and informative guide to using MS 2010. Instead of the boring reference manual showing each tab and giving a slight technical description of the function, this book gives you a practical everyday example of what a project manager does then relates the function to the task. Very refreshing and much easier to understand.

3.0 out of 5 stars Prolific May 23 2011
By bmc@eta
The content is definitely thorough, but the book attempts to both explain how to use Project and at the same time teach you basic project management skills. This is fairly frustrating when you just want to know how to perform a simple operation. You end up having to skim through reams of pages. Depends what you're after I suppose. I'm now inclined to go out and buy another book, but this time i will select the one with the fewest pages!

Great book. Good infos on how to use MS Project and when to use which feature and why from a project management standpoint. All of that with a clever humoristic touch.

Reading a book about MS Project while learning tips n' tricks about Project management and having fun at the same time! What else can you ask for from an MS Project book?

It's also a great book for people with some knowledge about MS Project as well as for those new to this software.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great content, poor printing quality Jan. 3 2012
By Colin O'Flynn - Published on
Content is great - contains much more than just how to use Project 2010, but how to manage projects in general. This also includes example spreadsheets, templates, etc.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lengthy Reference Feb. 27 2012
By Mark Bassett - Published on
This book is 745 pages of reference, broken to 6 sections described as:

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn Microsoft Project TO-DAY!!! July 22 2010
By Dan McKinnon - Published on
Another gem in the Missing Manual line of books. This book makes learning Microsoft Project 2010 easy breezy and fun to boot! Spanned over 700+ pages and 27 chapters of smoooooth writing and easy to follow examples, the author does a grandiose job of turning newbie users into experienced ones in no time at all. From the basics of Project to setting up schedules to assigning tasks to making changes to tracking progress to getting your schedule on the web, this is an all in one solution.

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.

Buy It.

This book details areas of construction scheduling that most do not. It isn't just about the program, but the actual process. The author uses real life terms and includes a bit of humor to make a point.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Missing Manual" should be included with MS Project. Dec 21 2012
By lnosko - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a PMP, I'm fluent in MS Project. I was before this book.

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.
