You can very effectively skip through the text taking a chapter at a time to learn specific tasks. However, don't plan on using the SBS series for reference book or quick how-to guide. In Project 2010 SBS you will cover the core skills needed for using Project as a standalone application but helps are sprinkled throughout on using Project Server. SBS assumes the reader is already comfortable with the computer and has some experience with the Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 Ribbons.
Project 2010 SBS is a great book for learning the application and does contain many tips and tricks on the project management methodology. However, SBS is not a book on methodology. The brief appendix "Short Course in Project Management" is helpful but not a replacement for training and experience in project management. While the SBS series is best suited for individual study it can be used in the classroom in a pinch. I have used SBS series texts for several applications in classes but they are far from the best option. The price point of around $19.79 on Amazon is appealing for classrooms. The new appendix on using SBS in the classroom is unfortunately not at all helpful for an experienced instructor.

Was very let down by quality of printing though. Book is Printed On Demand (POD), and is very easily recognizable as that. Blacks vary between pages, resolution not high enough for font used with fine strokes becoming messy. Already had the e-book and decided I wanted the real thing, but honestly in this instance I would have been happy sticking with the e-book.
Part One: Project Management - like a mini-manual on Project Management basics, explaining what projects are, why managing them is a good idea, how to pick projects and obtain support, and quick tour of planning a project.
Part Two: Project Planning, More than Creating a Schedule - starts with a quick test drive of MSProject, then goes thru aspecs of planning including breaking work down, estimating work and duration, assigning resources to tasks and setting up a budget, then how to refine a schedule and prepare it for the execution phase of the project.
Part Three: Projects in Action - explain how to track progres, evaluate that progress, correct course and manage changes, generate reports and steps at the end of the project.
Part Four: Project Power Tools - talk about how to work on more than one project and how to share data with other (Microsoft) programs and people.
Part Five: Customizing Project- explains how to customize MS Project confguration, including the ribbon, use templates, and use macros.
Part Six: Appendices - three appendixes provide guides on how to install Project, reverence to hwlp resources, and a quick review of keyboard shortcuts.
I appreciated the frequently inserted boxes of tip on themes like "Tools of the Trade", "Up to Speed", Reality Check", etcetera to help clarify the meaning and usage.
