5.0 out of 5 stars Good book. CD is very helpful., 17 Mar 2003
This review is from: OpenOffice.Org 1.0 Resource Kit (Paperback)
I am very pleased that there is now a book and CD available for OpenOffice.org, so that one no longer has to download from the openoffice site or gather the howto documents scattered all over creation. This OpenOffice.org package here is what anyone needs who wants the "OpenOffice.org package", everything in one place, like a regular program with documentation.
The book is excellent. I learned several new tips just paging through the book the first time, which I would not have divined on my own. File > Export, by the way, to send drawings to GIFs or JPG, not File > Save As. There is a nice set of tutorials to start one off easily and the style is very readable. There is a good section on the advanced Calc (spreadsheet) tools like Scenarios. Goal Seek, and document comparison that I found very easy to follow and am incorporating into my home budget planning spreadsheets.
I highly recommend this user's guide/CD package instead of StarOffice. Staroffice is excellent software as well but costs about three times as much as this OpenOffice.org for little additional value.
