5.0 out of 5 stars Office XP - The most helpful book i've seen., 16 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Microsoft Office XP Step-By-Step (With CD-ROM) (Paperback)
I have only recently invested in a computer and for an extra £20 I have found this book invaluable. As a mere beginner in the computer world, it has tought me more than I could imagine. Very easy to understand and follow especially with the CD that comes with it with examples to work from. Even my wife has become interested!

4.0 out of 5 stars Limited and misleading but useful if you need discipline, 26 Nov. 2002

This review is from: Microsoft Office XP Step-By-Step (With CD-ROM) (Paperback)
Step by step is a great concept for beginners. And the pictures are truly worth 1000 words. The book is well divided into the products that compose office 2002. I have Microsoft works which contains Word 2002. I also bought separately FrontPage.
The examples in the book and on CD follow what you would normally do yourself when testing a new product or update. There is no new insight or trick. The only advantage in buying the book is the discipline of going from "a to z" instead of jumping around a possibly missing a critical step.
The big disadvantage is not learning the information that you need to complete your task in a timely manor. Rule one in any discipline, know your purpose then pick the tool (hammers do not work well with screws.) You are also lead down the garden path (especially with FrontPage.) Instead of picking a good commercial ISP that uses mainstream tools for web hosting such as Perl and with a proven operating environment as SUN OS, HPUX, AIX or even Linux. You are directed to anyone with a toy as long as it has the other half of the FrontPage functions on it (server side applications.)
Bottom line this is a good beginner book but can lead you into a corner if you try to use it for anything but learning the basic functions of Office XP.
