Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Strongly recommended! This book will show you how to use the incredible 'out of the box' capabilities of Sharepoint to make web sites to structure and display information without programming. This book is NOT about programming web parts or components - in fact you don't need to be a programmer at all.

The book is very well written and gives STRUCTURED ADVICE on where to start, and how to choose between the many options. It is NOT just a useless duplication of the Help screens you already have, like some books. It covers small business right up to big enterprises where I am working. I now UNDERSTAND things instead of just guessing.

I can now create simple solutions with Sharepoint, Excel and Infopath in minutes or hours that 2 years ago would just not have happened - they would have needed a web designer, a database designer, a programmer, months of planning, and too much money.

If you are responsible for setting up or managing Sharepoint sites, or if you just need to know if Sharepoint is the right way to go, buy it!!!

Having bought a couple of SharePoint 2007 beginner books to get up to speed on SharePoint, I found this book well written and the pace was just right. The Hands On section was easy to follow with quality screen shots. I found that I ended up using this book as my primer to SharePoint more than the others. Recommended for beginners.

Format: Paperback
There are now a large number of books on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, so it's hard to know which ones to choose. If you are new to MOSS 2007, then this book is for you, and even if you are not then still buy it. It covers both how to use the product as well as how to administer it. A very hard mix to get right, but Amanda and Shane manage it just right. Loads of practical hands on exercises labelled as "Try It Out", and I love the little exercises at the end of each chapter. Well done.

If you want a starter book on SharePoint 2007, then this book is for you. It is simple and takes you in to the world of SharePoint 2007 by explaining the fundamentals. It provides you with the essential information you need to put together simple SharePoint sites. You will need a more in-depth book if you want to understand the more powerful features and benefits.

The Best SharePoint User Guide on the Market 6 Aug 2007
By Elias Gonzales - Published on
Format: Paperback
I know this book was a bit late to get on the scene, June 5th. Let me tell you, this book was well worth the wait! I've had the chance to read other beginning SharePoint books and user guides, specifically SharePoint 2007 User's Guide: Learning Microsoft's Collaboration and Productivity Platform and Microsoft SharePoint 2007 For Dummies, and none of them lay it out for the end users as well as this book does.

The book is filled with easy to follow examples with step-by-step instructions that make it easy to implement your own team solutions.

My favorite chapters are 6, 10, 11, and 12; Content Types, Forms Services, Excel Services, and the BDC, respectively. None of these chapters are longer than 50 pages, but they are filled to the brim with so much useful information that you will read them from beginning to end.

This book is the definitive SharePoint user's guide.

Must Have for SharePoint Designers 13 Aug 2007
By Ben McMann - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the best book on the market for learning how the newest versions of SharePoint can help company's improve business processes and information management.

From getting a solid understanding of content types and site columns (new features within SharePoint) to making use of Forms Services, the reader gains knowledge of how to use these important concepts to create business solutions that are easy to maintain and extend.

Because SharePoint is so open and powerful, easily explaining how to incorporate SharePoint to help a company run its business more efficiently is challenging. To take full advantage of SharePoint, companies will need employees that are not developers (programmers) to embrace the technology. These users will need to know how to utilize SharePoint to meet business objectives, and how to customize the platform (without the need for code). This book is geared for this next generation of SharePoint users (called Designers) - and it delivers a winner.

Great book!

Start Sharepoint from here... 26 Dec 2007
By S. Demiliani - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've read a lot of books about Sharepoint and MOSS and actually I can say that this is my personal "top of the list" for ayone who wants to be introduced into the Sharepoint and MOSS world.
The book is simple to read and rich of guided samples, it covers all the aspects you need in order to start working with Sharepoint and MOSS.
If you're a developer that wants to customize the engine, this is not the right book for you... but if you've the needs to learn Sharepoint and to work immediately with it, this is extremely recommended.
As usual, Wrox is a guarantee...

Good starting point for soon to be SharePoint Professionals (and a good refresher for the rest of us) 10 Sep 2007
By A. Jones - Published on
Format: Paperback
As the title states I find this a great place to start learning or use as a reference. You can never have enough good references!

I found this book to be inline with the other "Beginning" Wrox books. It outlines key concepts within the SharePoint platform and provides examples of how to use those concepts to build team solutions.

From outlining site columns and content types to working with ECS and the BDC this book is sure to provide you with essential SharePoint knowledge to get you going!

Very readable, straight to the point 15 Jun 2008
By Ryan Kennedy - Published on
Format: Paperback
In between Sharepoint for Dummies and the MOSS Administrator Manual is this book - how to actually use SharePoint in the organisation. It has everything you need to know about the different components and what to do with them. A lifesaver!!!
