Visio is not as instinctive as some Office programs become and a good guide is essential for a beginner user. This book provides just that.

I can't believe that there is no CDROM with this book and that an electronic copy has to be purchased separately.

Not impressive.

Great combination of reference and idea material... 20 Jun. 2007
By Thomas Duff - Published on
Format: Paperback
Visio is one of those software packages I use just often enough to get by, but end up frustrated as I know I could have done things differently (and easier). That's why I keep close tabs on my copy of Visio 2007 Bible by Bonnie Biafore. It makes all the difference between struggling along and actually producing useful documentation...

Part 1 - Understanding Visio Fundamentals: Getting Started with Visio; Getting Started with Drawings; Working with Visio Files; Working with Shapes; Connecting Shapes; Working with Text; Enhancing Diagram Appearance with Formatting
Part 2 - Integrating Visio Drawings: Inserting, Linking, and Embedding Objects; Importing, Exporting, and Publishing to the Web; Linking Shapes with Data
Part 3 - Using Visio for Office Productivity: Collaborating with Others; Building Block Diagrams; Constructing Charts and Graphs; Working with Organization Charts; Building Visio Flowcharts; Documenting Processes, Workflows, and Data Flows; Scheduling Projects with Visio; Documenting Brainstorming Sessions; Analyzing Results with PivotDiagrams
Part 4 - Using Visio in Information Technology: Modeling and Documenting Databases; Building UML Models; Building Software Development Diagrams; Mapping Web Sites; Creating Network Diagrams
Part 5 - Using Visio for Architecture and Engineering: Working with Scaled Drawings; Creating and Managing Scaled Drawings; Laying Out Architectural and Engineering Plans; Planning Space and Managing Facilities; Integrating CAD and Visio; Working with Engineering Drawings
Part 6 - Customizing Stencils, Templates, and Shapes: Creating and Customizing Templates; Creating and Customizing Stencils; Creating and Customizing Shapes; Customizing Shapes Using ShapeSheets; Formatting with Styles; Customizing Toolbars and Menus; Automating Visio
Part 7 - Quick Reference: Installing Visio 2007; Visio Help Resources; Additional Resources for Templates and Stencils; Keyboard Shortcuts; Template and Stencil Reference

For me, this book serves a couple of purposes. First off, Bonnie does a great job documenting the software. It's easy to find the subject or information you want, and her style of writing is clear and concise. I've not yet found an instance where I was unable to follow along and learn what it was I was after. Second, and most important, is that I pick up a number of ideas that I hadn't even considered. For instance, I learned about mapping web sites in her Visio 2003 Bible title a couple of years ago. I had no clue that was possible, and it allowed me to offer some very cool solutions to my customers. This year, I learned about creating customized templates and stencils for my own use. Again, a very timely feature as I'm spending more time producing certain types of documentation that require the use of Visio. I usually spend far too much time hunting through templates trying to find just the right shape or symbol I need. Now I can produce my own custom UML and Flowchart templates, and save all kinds of time. It's a question I never thought to ask, but I definitely grasped the application of the idea once she spelled it out. It's rare that I find such a good combination of reference and idea material in a single title...

Unless you're already a Visio guru, you'll benefit greatly from going through this book. And even if you *are* the resident Visio guru, I'd be willing to bet you'll find something in here that will make you think "I didn't know I could do that..."

Nowhere near enough pictures 10 Aug. 2007
By James J. Bell - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a Visio kinda guy. I learn and communicate visually. This book contains text instructions for all the stuff you want to understand, but very few diagrams or print screens. Why? If you're so good at Visio - then use it. I want to understand how to incorporate shape data and data graphics. To be perfectly honest, I'd have preferred to purchase 'Teach yourself Visually Visio 2007 Professional' - yes I like color pictures. I'll let you judge for yourself. I've read 12 chapters and I'm still not clear on how and when to best add data graphics to my diagram. I wish someone would come out with a book who's chapter #1 tells you where to get all the master shapes YOU find pertinent. Anybody, please send me links to your favorite Visio communities - where people go to share Visio master shapes (etc.). I've got another 20 chapters or so to go in Biafore's Bible. Yes, I intend to finish his book, but it wouldn't have killed them to diagram step-by-step procedures for the more complex tasks.

Visio the "Swiss Army Knife" of modeling tools 1 April 2010
By Paul W. Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Microsoft continues to evolve Visio into a robust modeling tool and Bonny Biafore walks through the highlights well. If you are looking for a comprehensive overview of Visio - this should be your choice.
Using and applying Visio's many stencils to a project should be "out of scope" for this book. Removing this section out of the book would reduce the size by a hundred pages or so and keep the book on target as a feature reference guide.
Another book written in a tutorial style with applied samples would better educate people to the potential use(s) of the product.

I recommend this as a good reference book for product features.

Absolutely Useless 3 Dec. 2011
By Cecelia A Mitchell - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Usually when a book is titled "bible" it gives it will include broad scope of information regarding a subject, including a plethora of information on "how to". While this book does have a wealth of information, it is not a "how to" guide. I agree with the previous posting in reference to the lack of graphics, screenshots, etc. My primary purpose for purchasing the book was to learn how to create a conceptual web site using Visio. The information included in the book was useless for that purpose. If it were possible to request a refund, I would certainly do it. This was a total waste.

The material covered is ok, I guess. I purchased it for Software Flowcharting and it does cover that.
