Great value for the received baggage of knowledge. Well worth the reading and the must-be-followed-through exercises. Everyone using the 2010 Office suite Pro should consider...

Good hands-on begging book on Project Sept. 13 2010
By George J. Sawyer III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a simple, easy way to teach yourself Project 2010 Step by Step by Carl Chatfield and Timothy Johnson is a good choice. Step by Step (SBS) is a series of textbooks published by Microsoft for learning the applications in the Microsoft Office Suite. The format is hands-on with brief explanations of concepts followed by step by step exercises demonstrating key tasks. Most students can work through the book and its exercises in about 2-3 days of solid study. Disciplined students often find a chapter-a-day to be a reasonably workable pace.

You can very effectively skip through the text taking a chapter at a time to learn specific tasks. However, don't plan on using the SBS series for reference book or quick how-to guide. In Project 2010 SBS you will cover the core skills needed for using Project as a standalone application but helps are sprinkled throughout on using Project Server. SBS assumes the reader is already comfortable with the computer and has some experience with the Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 Ribbons.

Project 2010 SBS is a great book for learning the application and does contain many tips and tricks on the project management methodology. However, SBS is not a book on methodology. The brief appendix "Short Course in Project Management" is helpful but not a replacement for training and experience in project management. While the SBS series is best suited for individual study it can be used in the classroom in a pinch. I have used SBS series texts for several applications in classes but they are far from the best option. The price point of around $19.79 on Amazon is appealing for classrooms. The new appendix on using SBS in the classroom is unfortunately not at all helpful for an experienced instructor.

Disclaimer: As is common practice in book reviews I was given a free copy of Project 2010 SBS for review. This review was originally published on my blog at [...]

Written to learn Oct. 30 2011
By Michael Peets - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This textbook provides a seamless introduction to MS Project. The text and practice files dovetail perfectly. This has been the most painless introduction to a computer program I have ever experienced. This book was written to be friendly to beginning users, but offers a lot to more advanced PC users like myself without wasting my time. If I had to recommend a book for learning MS Project 2010, this would be the one.

Misleading Title Jan. 27 2013
By J. Vaughn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The title of the book suggests that the authors start out with "Step 1" and then help the readers work their way through the book, building on the material each step of the way. This is NOT the case. The authors instead created separate practice files for each chapter. It may be because going through an entire project, one step at a time, would result in a book twice as thick. However, it would have been a lot more helpful if that were the case. The major drawback of having a separate file for each chapter is that it leaves learning gaps. In Chapter 3, for example, we set up resources. Then, in Chapter 4, we're supposed to assign resources to tasks, but the resources and tasks have changed from one chapter to the next for no logical reason. Why couldn't Chapter 4 just pick up where Chapter 3 left off? This is not a great book, nor is it a bad book. I think the best way to learn from this book is to download a trial version of Project 2010, and walk through the material multiple times. Do it until you can work through each and every one of the book's objectives, without even opening the book.

A solid title with good content Dec 28 2010
By DJ_King_SD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a solid introduction to Project 2010 with some overlap of material for SBS version 2007. There is some rehash of material from 2007 because of the functionality staying relatively similar or same in some cases. The screen shots are very helpful as you walk through this book.

There is some light coverage of Project Server and SharePoint but it's very light and not all that helpful. There is also an appendix on "Project Management 101" fundamentals of project management. I'm not sure why the authors feel this should be included; I guess they felt this could encourage less-experienced/aspiring project managers to buy this book and learn the tool. As a veteran PM, I did not find any benefit in this section.

Also, there is no longer a CD included as in the 2007 version, but you can get the PDF download and all the practice files from the publisher website.

All in all, a decent title and introduction to MS Project 2007. I will likely look for a more in-depth book/resource in the near future to supplement the information.

Incorrect practice file July 10 2011
By Adrian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Being in the software industry, I generally accept errors between content and associated practice files. But with this book, there are too many errors for me to ignore.

Everything was going great until I got to Chapter 9. There were some gross errors related to resource allocation that I brushed off; but then I got to Chapter 10. I am unable to perform any of the over-allocated resource tasks because the practice file is not even close to the chapter's content. It appears that the "Advance Plan_Start" file was published in the final state of the chapter vice the beginning. Therefore, all resource over-allocations have been resolved leaving the user with nothing to do.

Because of my frustration, I will have to continue with Chapter 11 later this week.

Without the correct practice file, I will not recommend this book for novice users. Advanced user will be able to apply knowledge from earlier version of Project to understand the concept of resource leveling, etc.
