5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Project 2007 May 1 2007
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I knew I was going to like this book when I read the first chapter. The authors immediately start with the basics necessary for creating and managing real, viable schedule plans. As the chapters unfold, each aspect of working with Project is explained in a level of detail that is as useful for new users as it is for "seasoned" users who have worked with Project for many years.

Microsoft Project has many features and unfortunately it will allow users to do things that are not recommended except for very unique types of schedule plans. This book pulls from the combined learning experience of the authors to sort out the "recommended approach" from the whole array of Project features. That makes it much easier for the user to develop a good schedule plan at the onset and maintain it through project completion.

If I were to say the book has a downside I would pick on the title. It sounds like it was written expressly for Microsoft's latest version of Project, 2007. However, I would say that at least 80% of the content in this book is applicable to versions of Project going back to Project 2000. That makes it invaluable for users who may not have upgraded to Project 2007. Nonetheless, many new feature were added to Project 2007 and those are clearly expalined throughout the book.

It is a long read - well over 800 pages but the chapters, or learning modules as they are called, make it easy to find a particular topic. I highly recommend it to all users of Project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really the ultimate May 17 2007
By J. De Messemaeker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Well yes, this guide starts from the basics and goes all the way, making it fit for the beginner and those wanting to dig deeper alike, but one can argue, don't they all? I want to call this book outstanding, but then I fezel I have to explain where it stands out as compared to other Microsoft Project learning books.

There are a few unique advantages I want to highlight:

- It handles each topic only once (rather than making one curious in an early chapter and explaining the full truth 10 chapters later)

- It goes beyond just teaching the usage with paragraphs clearly marked as "understanding..." which is absolutely necessary for all users of Project;

- Finally, the richess and quality of the exercice material with many samples clearly based on life situations: not just "staircase Gantt Charts" but overlapping tasks, well chosen milestones..

In short, it will be an add-on for my teaching.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mostly a Rehash of Project 2003 June 21 2007
By PM_SuperFreak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A word of caution to those who are proficient in MS Project 2003...this book does NOT segregate new features that come with 2007; existing 2003 functionality is discussed as if you are learning MS Project FOR THE FIRST TIME. If you have used 2003 for any real-world projects, this book will not be very efficient use of your time in learning 2007 features. I think the "Microsoft Office Project 2007 Step by Step" may be more practical for this audience.

And by the way, this is a HUGE book (in terms of overall dimensions and page count) with large print (for unknown reason).

5.0 out of 5 stars At long last! April 28 2007
By Rod Gill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's taken a long time, but finally we have a comprehensive book in the form of a self-paced teach yourself workbook. Gary and Dale have done a great job of simplifying Microsoft Project and breaking learning it into easy to consume chunks.

Both Dale and Gary are Microsoft MVPs who have a wealth of experience and have spent a lot of time over the years helping others in the Project news groups. This experience of Project, and in what problems users frequently have using Project, clearly shows in the text, diagrams and tips throughout the book.

Don't learn Project without it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb learning material and valuable reference! April 27 2007
By JulieS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The "Ultimate Learning Guide to Microsoft Office Project 2007" combines the best of both worlds: people new to Microsoft Project can follow along with the step-by-step instructions --including practice files -- to learn the product; while more experienced users can hone their skills by reviewing the wealth of material presented in the over 875 pages.

The book is well written with clear graphics and explanations as well as valuable hints and practical tips gathered from the authors' wealth of knowledge and experience with Project. It is a wonderful investment for users new to Project 2007 as well as a great jump start for quickly getting up to speed for users of the previous releases of Project.
