HASH(0xa1ac1bd0) out of 5 stars Great book to learn the quick things, and the not so obvious March 9 2007
By Jason Short - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I consider myself a power user, and I still learned things about Office 2007 by browsing through this book. I bought it for my wife to learn the new features in Office 2007 and I ended up keeping it for myself! It is a good reference (you can quickly thumb through to find things), and a good exploration tool. I found myself time and again saying "I didn't know you could do that". I am sure all this is in the MS docs, but I personally don't like reading online help files. I found the book to be well worth the purchase price and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about Office 2007.

HASH(0xa1ac1cb4) out of 5 stars Needs more organization Oct. 11 2008
By lbosw6617 - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book need a little more organization as it is not easy to find the subject one is looking for. I was trying to find how to sort a merge- - -never got there. Office 2007 is a lot different than the Office version I have been using. It is like a totally new world. This book didn't help much.
