5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for those learning SharePoint 2010 Feb. 23 2011
By Lily - Published on
I am a recent Computer Science graduate and decided that SharePoint was the product to learn.
I started with more advanced SharePoint books but made little progress because they had little introduction and were complex in early chapters.

I purchased Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Plain & Simple: Learn the simplest ways to get things done with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and worked my way through the exercises. What I found is that the other reading I've done in SharePoint makes sense now because this book clearly explains the usability in simple terms.
This book gets right to the point of what SharePoint 2010 can do for Designers. It has excellent step by step instructions along with color coded graphics.

As a result of this, I am able to go to more advanced books and make progress.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone using or learning SharePoint 2010.

I give this book a solid 5 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Want to learn about SharePoint at your own pace? - this is how to do it Jan. 10 2011
By David Wier - Published on
Let me first start with what this book is not. I'ts not an in-depth, complete book on SharePoint 2010. it starts off with 'What's New in 2010', then, goes from Getting Started and Organizing chapters, all the way to security and search. It covers quite a lot of areas, over-all.

That being said, it is an excellent book on what it is. It is a very good map for those who just want the facts - for those who want to learn about SharePoint without having to be a developer or an Administrator. Plain & Simple provides a map, if you will of some of the major points of SharePoint, how to get there, what it looks like when you get there and what it does once you're there.

Along with the pictures (screenshots), tips, descriptions for each area, this book provides a lot of good information in a short space, including information about Security and SharePoin search. It doesn't overwhelm you with a lot of in-depth text, so this isn't a full-blown, get to know everything there is about SharePoint kind of book, but it allows you to get a good feeling for SharePoint and what it does, and at the same time, it shows you how to do it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for SharePoint 2010 designers Feb. 3 2011
By Bonnie Covach - Published on
I found this book informative and helpful in all the site collection duties. Setting permissions, working with templates, lists, workspaces, look and feel, etc. As a site collection's admin, without any previous instruction, you could get a site up and running by just using this book. It seems to covers it all.

It does not, however, cover any Farm Admin duties. This looks to be strictly for designers and not for disaster recovery, site collection creation, shared services or any other Farm admin duties. It would be great if there were a Plain and Simple for those duties!

Designers should defintely have this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and concise information for SharePoint users... Oct. 29 2011
By Thomas Duff - Published on
This would be the book I'd love to see in the hands of all our employees at work... Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Plain & Simple: Learn the simplest ways to get things done with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 By Johnathan Lightfoot and Chris Beckett. As we get ready to move from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010, one of the biggest concerns we have is training people on the changes. To be honest, trying to hook up current SharePoint users with concise how-to information is also a struggle. Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Plain & Simple overcomes that with most everything someone would need to know to get the most out of SharePoint 2010 as an end user or power user.

About This Book; What's New and Improved in SharePoint 2010?; Getting Started with SharePoint Sites; Organizing and Managing Information; List and Library Essentials; Working with Documents; Working with Media; Using Information Management Policies; Organizing People and Work; Using SharePoint with Office 2010; Collaborating with Blogs; Security Within SharePoint 2010; Using Personal Sites and Social Networking; Searching for Information; Index

This was my first exposure to the Plain & Simple series, and I can understand why they work so well. Printed in full color, they focus on the essential tasks that a person would want to accomplish with a piece of software. A brief explanation of the feature is followed by step-by-step instructions on the task. In addition, there are numerous information "bubbles" throughout, targeting tips, things to try out, references to additional information, and cautions to remember. If someone is motivated to read and try things out, then this book provides an excellent framework for those activities, making sure that all the essentials tasks and features are covered in a structured manner.

As a developer who works with SharePoint, this was also quite useful. I got a good feeling for some of the new SharePoint 2010 features, as well as pointers for existing features that have been improved. As I was reading, I was already making a mental list of enhancements to some of the projects I've built over the last year or so. I'm also going to start writing SharePoint tips for our company intranet, and the content here will give me a good framework for what content should be covered, as well as the order I should use to write about them.

I have another Plain & Simple book I'm working through as a user (OneNote 2010), and I'm finding it just as useful as the SharePoint 2010 book. All in all, I would definitely recommend Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Plain & Simple be available (in quantities) for your end users when you move to SharePoint 2010. The money spent will be more than paid back with increased productivity and happier users.

3.0 out of 5 stars Plain and Simple Nov. 23 2011
By Kathryn Kelley - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i bought this book because i needed help with SharePoint, but didn't want to get bogged down with a bunch of computer gibberish. However, this book was a bit TOO plain and simple. gives you the BASICS without going into ANY sort of detail about any of the advanced stuff. pics and diagrams were nice and again is a great resource if you just need to know the basics. if you need to learn about the more advanced features, this is not for you.
