A Less-Technical Way to Learn MS Project April 3 2011
By TGW - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While there are several ways to learn Project 2010, for my money, this is the easiest way to get started. If you're a confirmed "techie," this may not be for you. But if your computer skills fall into the average range,
you'll be able to use several of the applications faster than you might imagine.

Definitely NOT for Beginners or Intermediates! June 22 2013
By Nusaram - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I buy an "<XYZ> for Dummies" book, I'm expecting it to teach me at least the basics of how to use <XYZ>. This book, however, is written more in the form of a reference, but if I were to buy a reference, I'd buy a TRUE reference and not a "Dummies" book.

It doesn't walk you through any exercises; rather, it explains things. For example, it explains the differences between Task Types but doesn't walk you through any tutorial examples where you create different Task Types and see the results of each. Rather, it just tells you the steps needed to do activities. For example, "If you want to create a Fixed Duration task, follow these steps..." and it lists the steps.

I was looking to brush up on and improve my MS Project skills, so I researched several books. I finally settled on this book and the "MS Project Step By Step" book. Fortunately, I decided to start with that book and it was a GREAT start and I very-much HIGHLY recommend that book instead of this one!

The Step-By-Step book comes with example Project Plans and walks you through examples/tutorials. I learned A LOT from that book.

Even though this "Dummies" book may serve best as a reference, there are better reference-written books/series out there than this "Dummies" book, so I urge you to also AVOID this book, even if you're looking for a reference.

Project 2010 For Dummies (For Dummies (Computers)) Sept. 19 2012
By IANO - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Book is OK. But is a drier read than I had hoped and would have benefitted from the inclusion of a DVD to actually demo the concepts or to populate a dummy project so that you could practice the concepts discussed and described in the text.

Does the job Oct. 2 2011

Book told me what I wanted to know and was relatively useful. It is like it said, "for dummies," so if you're looking for advanced project help, look elsewhere.

Unfathomable. I Guess I Need - an Even Dummier Version !! March 14 2013
By Aaryanna - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I once used MS Project 2003 for a job years ago. I had self-taught myself the program using a book much like this one. Unfortunately, I haven't used the software much since.

My latest firm, though - wanted me to use MS Project 2010.

Sadly for me, Project 2010 has changed so much - that even when using this book - I was unable to teach myself how to use this tool. I probably just need someone to help me get started. But, unfortunately, no one in my company - can even do spreadsheets - let alone project planning software.

I draw my own `fake' Gantt charts using MS Excel. That's more than advanced enough for everyone else I work with.

(Plus, I'd rather keep my `slack' time secret.)

Unless you really need its features - Project 2010 is overkill - and so is this book. I don't think I've ever felt - dummier.
