this book is very helpful to those with little or no experience of project management. if you have moderate or extensive skills you probabalty will not find it helpful. but its simple tips and hints and easy to follow stepby step approach makes iniating a project really simple.

The Book is up to the usual high Dummies standard. Unfortunately my anti virus software McAfee found a Trojan virus on the CD which I wasn't able to clean or delete. the CD is therefore usless. Shame.

A Great Way to Get Started 7 Mar. 2007
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Project management on even a fairly large project is both important and difficult to accomplish without computer assistance. Microsoft Project is a full fledged project management system that is fully integrated into the Microsoft Office environment. This means that the screen looks a lot like any other Office application. There are several versions of Project, and these are described to assist in deciding what to buy.

Finally you get to the point where you have Project on your system and have gotten it started. This is a 'For Dummies' book. And it makes the assumption that you aren't dump, that you have some idea about how to use a computer and have just been assigned the task of managing a project. It begins with defining things like What Is Project Management? Then it leads you through how Project 2007 can help you keep track of things.

Of all the books I've seen, this is the one I'd recomment for the beginning user. There are some more complex reference books for advanced users, but this is the place to start. Later, if PM turns you on, you can go on to certification, the official domumentation, and so on.

A final strong reason for this book is the CD. It contains an awful lot of other software that you may find helpful for us in conjunction with Microsoft Project. Many of these are free, open source programs, but here they all are, and they all work.

Very good and to the point for the basics 10 May 2008
By Stuart Floyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good for the novice person such as myself with this product and in my use and going through this provided a very solid basis for learning the use and abilities of Project 2007 and giving the confidence to learn further through trial and error.

You could learn any prodcut with your own trial and error, however, again this is a good starting platform for the novice and good review for regular users of past editions and coming up to speed on the newest version here.

In most cases these Dummy Books are not overpriced as are some of the others. There are expert books out there to that provide all the ins and outs if that is what you need this would NOT be the book.

Not Good as a teaching tool. 12 Jan. 2009
By JazzELady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book to help me learn the basics of MS Project 2007, however, although the book gave insight to some basics things, its really not written for people who know nothing at all as indicated. The style of writing and language used was more than expected even for a college grad like myself. I've ended up using the book as a reference more so than a teaching tool and used the online help to assist me with the basics of the software.
What a great reference book 12 Mar. 2013
By unknown soldier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like how the step by step instructions help me to the different functions of the software. Plus is is really nice to see a list of all the things that Project can do.
Simple and really done for dummies 7 Nov. 2012
By Luis Vargas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Really good tool to learn MS Project 2007 in a well structured way. Specific knowledge, too many Tips and Tricks. If you want to start from beginners position this is the book for you. I expected brief samples, short and good explanations and I found it a lot.
