I didn't think this book was that great. It skipped over some really useful things, like mail merge for word. This book seems geared mostly for complete beginners who want to become MS office specialists, or maybe people who just graduated high school. Also I did not like the layout of the pages, and thought the author's writing style was verbose.
Book has lots of errors. Found it much harder to follow than previous editions by same author. Alot of the colors are off, photos are incorrect, and some of the directions are either missing or not explicit enough.

I found this book was my least favorite, and hardest to follow.All I can say is I cannot WAIT until this course is done and I can SELL this book.
Some of the exercises in this book are outdated due to some changes with microsoft word, for example when you need to add pictures to the documents especially in the powerpoint exercises, they no longer offer microsoft clipart and now it is powered by Bing search for adding online pictures to your documents. Makes it complicated to complete the exercises as described, but other than that very informative for a basic user. I am required to use this book for my area of study in school, but this is very basic stuff and I myself am a little more of an advanced user, but I am still learning from this book.

Paid the extra money for next day shipping due to deadlines in my class and it arrived the next day. The book was in good condition although some of the pages were stuck together I don't consider it to be flawed. The price was...
