5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and worth reading 21 April 2009
Format:Paperback
An easy to read and jokey approach to getting to grips with using PowerPoint 2003. The book covers the basics such as managing slides, adding notes and animations as well as advanced techniques which help you use PowerPoint quicker (for example customising the menus).

I especially liked the review feature which I hadn't used before. This is useful for reviewing changes other members have made to your presentation.

Even if you use PowerPoint everyday it's worth flicking through to make sure your doing things quickly.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK 11 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
This is very much a technical explanation of how to use the software. There's not too much about content and what goes into making a good presentation.

This book is good if you have never used Powerpoint 2003 before. Unfortunately it didn't tell me much more than I had found out playing with the software myself.
