5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic!!! 12 Sep 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is the best value that I have ever purchased on Amazon. I bought "How to Use Microsoft Project 2010" because I was looking for a tutorial on Project 2010. Since the book was only $9.99, I decided to give it a shot. WOW, was I surprised at the quality of information contained therein. The author, Dr. Andrew Makar, has assembled a great book that has all the information that I was initially looking for with a tutorial, plus a whole lot more. The book does cover how to use the program, however it also covers the strategies and tactics for managing a project. The book starts at MS Project's menu ribbon and ends with advanced topics with 10 steps in the middle.

I can't say enough about this book. I recommend this to anyone that uses MS Project, regardless of your skill level.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great info but cannot see pictures 18 Feb 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on

All in all, this book was a good deal for the price. The information was short and sweet and to the point, which is exactly what I needed and wanted. However, I couldn't see the diagrams which was a total pain since I don't have MS Project on my computer at home. I tried by viewing the diagrams on my Kindle, then seeing if they showed up any better on my Nexus 10 (they did, but only slightly), and finally, I tried reading the book on my PC and still no luck. The pictures were slightly larger but they were so blurry I could not make out a majority of the text.

Again, the information was explained very well, and if I could have actually viewed the diagrams provided of what Project looked like after he entered the appropriate information I would totally rate this with 5 stars. Unfortunately, by not being able to actually see what the end result was, it left me confused many times. And since this is a Kindle only book I just couldn't give it more than 3 stars, especially since I think that should have been taken into account when the book was written.

Very obvious content
Not worth my money. It is a very basic guide which is not worth to even call it a guide or tutorial
5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, direct and pragmatic 17 Feb 2014

This was a great overview and refresher and did a good job addressing the reasons behind specific choices, rather than simply focusing on the capabilities of the tool.
