5.0 out of 5 stars Dan Gookin...best computer author around! Nov. 24 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I wasn't sure which Word 2003 book to buy because there are a lot to choose form. So I checked around to see which author could help me the best. No contest. I had no idea how many awesome computer books Dan Gooken had written! The best new thing about Word 2003 has to be what you can do with smart tag now. It's great to be able to customize them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has been very helpful. March 11 2007
By Monty Rainey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Several years back, probably more than ten, I read one of the "for Dummies" books. It's been so long ago, I don't even remember what the book was about, but I do remember that I was very disappointed in it. For that reason, I've always steered away from this series of books. However recently, I found myself in need of WORD 2003 FOR DUMMIES by Dan Gookin. I have to admit that I have been shocked by just how good this book is.

I'm not a techie person by any means, and that makes me perfect this book. It is written in easy to understand terms and takes otherwise complex issues down to their basic level of simplicity. So far, I have turned to this book maybe half a dozen times and in each case, have mastered the subject with little difficulty.

If you're like me, this may not be a book that you read through, but it is certainly one that you will reference as the need occurs. To that end, I am very satisfied with this book. I have certainly changed my mind about this series of books. I know different people write these books, but my first experience was so disappointing, I judged all of these books by their cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful to have on hand Aug. 21 2006
By Melanie K. Wellner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just got a new computer and needed a new Dummies book because I'm a dummy. I have already used this book to solve several problems. Windows XP is quite different from Windows 98 so this is a must have on my desk. Easy to use.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Simplistic Jan. 9 2007
By Elizabeth Crews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be too simple to be useful. It is truly for those who have not used Word, not for those who have some proficiency and are hoping to learn more about all the features of Word 2003. This is the first of the "Dummies" books I have purchased--and it will be the last!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised July 20 2006
By F. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have had a number of dummies books and until now, they have on the whole disppointed me. You must understand though that I am English and speak that language which is not American. I think most of the books tend to overrate computer language skills of the average person trying to cope with computers. This one however is far more readable and much clearer in its explanations. Explanations of short cuts and other tips and quiffs are clear and not abstruse. Frank Jones
