The "dummmy" I got this book for likes it and is good at word 2003 now. Sadly for her - her work place replaced office 2003 with office 2007. LOL

5.0 out of 5 stars Word 2003 All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies 14 Feb 2014
By Willyum
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a 'dummy' I am finding this book very useful. Although it is a 'used' copy it is in excellent condition and as good a value for money as I am ever likely to find. I don't know how anything can be supplied, post free and in A1 condition, at such a low price. The book itself is typical of the Dummies series and deals with a range of issues in simple terms and in a format which allows you to pick and mix rather than having to systematically wade through the whole volume. There is also the usual sprinkling of humour throughout.

This was a second hand copy and was received in very good condition. I am happy with the purchase but unhappy with this long winded way of previewing an item. No more previews.
