2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Tami Brady TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 16 Dec. 2010
Format: Paperback
There for a while PowerPoint seemed to be an overused presentational resource. Everyone loved how easy the software was to use so every presentation (big or small) was presented in bullet points with a few graphics and pictures. Then, we all had to sit there and fain interest while the presenter read each and every point. Very tedious for all involved.

Fortunately, PowerPoint has matured quite a lot since those times. Using Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 shows how given a bit of imagination and creativity, presentations don`t have to be bland and boring anymore. Moreover, the 2010 version has added a few important extras such as creating sections and the ability to save the presentation as a pdf file (great for handouts).
Most useful though is the ability to add audio and video to our presentations. Now, we can literally make automated versions that we could stream on a website or have running continuously at a trade show. Manipulate the image and add a bit of animation and the presentation comes alive.

A top reference students will need 12 Dec. 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Patrice-Anne Rutledge's USING MICROSOFT POWERPOINT 2010 and USING LINKEDIN are fine, specific program-oriented references that are top picks for any new learner. Each book is accompanied by step-by-step video tutorials and audio sidebars delivered through the Free Web Edition that comes with each book. The result is a video tutorial and accompanying text unparalleled in scope and coverage, offering plenty of visuals reinforced by specific details. From using Linkedin to view and submit news articles and posting updates to inserting video clips into Powerpoint and modifying images, these are top references students will need!

I was excited to find this book, but after I downloaded it I discovered that the audio and video is only available through Safari books which costs $19.99 a month or $42.99 a month to access the content. There is a free ten day trial.
