2.0 out of 5 stars Adds little to the enigma of Word 2010 May 9 2011
By James R. Michaels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The newest version of Word is a major break from the past versions. Many of the tabs and buttons I've become used to seeing are now either gone or placed in a different place. I bought this book to guide me through the program, but was disappointed. First, the book assumes the reader has never used a word processor before, so it goes into very elementary usage. Second, it doesn't point out how the new version differs from what I'm used to (and still use at work). Third, when I consulted the index for specific features of the new program, I often couldn't find what I was looking for. If you're a novice to computing and word processing, this book may be helpful. If you're even the least bit experienced (and who isn't these days?) I would advise that you shop around for a different book.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is 2007 reformatted April 29 2011
By S. Depuydt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
About 20% of the menus and buttons the author describes aren't where he says they are. There are many features that do exist, but not where he tells you they exist. Perhaps they can be found in the 2007 version of Word or a trial version of 2010. Very frustrating to look for items not on the menus to which he directs you. If you're familiar with 2007, you will benefit from this book, but remember that about 20% of the information applies to the 2007 version or to a trial version of 2010. You have to know where else to look so you can find the stuff to which he incorrectly directs you. However, it is well written, and if you're not looking to write professionally, you may not need all the gizmos 2010 have to offer anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars My experience with Word 2010 for Dummies July 31 2011
By Pat K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have found Dan Gookin's book Word 2010 for Dummies very helpful. I have read it from cover to cover and have used all his instructions and information to acquaint myself with Word's different capabilities. I have Mr. Gookin's book Word 2003 for Dummies and found it very helpful.

Consequently. I knew before purchasing this new edition, that it would enable me to unlock the mysteries of the new Word application and it has done so.It is a helpful reference which I will no doubt find invaluable for as long as I have this edition of Microsoft Word. It seems to cover most all the more important features of the product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Word 2010 for Dummies a worthwhile purchase March 16 2012
By nomenclature - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is well worthwhile because it saves substantial amounts of search time. The Word 2010 icons are numerous and small and difficult to spot and I am not always intuitve about what is behind the icon labels. It is much faster for me to look it up in the "Word 2010 For Dummies" index and go straight to the page that tells me which icon to click and where to find that icon. I recommend this book.

Word 2010 For Dummies

Unlike the other "Dummies" books I have purchased, I am very disappointed in this one. Everything I have needed help with, I have not been able to find either in the index or in the book itself. To me, Dan Gookin, author, did himself a disservice with this book to the point that I regret the purchase.
