I bought the Power Point Dummies guide as I knew it would be easy reading and not too technical to understand like some training books. Simple and easy to follow which is good to have to hand.

I had a presentation to make without any knowledge of PowerPoint and three weeks to get it ready. With its understandable English, I was able to get everything ready and it enabled me to make a polished talk, much to my amazement.

Easy to understand - great lessons. I bought the 2013 book by mistake (I needed 2010) but it was really great so I kept it. I actually used it for 2010 and it was fine.

Before I read PowerPoint 2013 for dummies, I thought that PowerPoint was an application that was worthless filler for me. PowerPoint 2013 for Dummies showed me that PowerPoint is an excellent start for arranging PDF EBooks, and makes for an alternative RenPy for writing visual novels!!!
