Having gone from Office 97 to Office 2010 the changes in WORD were far more than one could expect to merely walk through. "Word 2010 for Dummies," with the use of the index in the rear of the book, took me to the exact location I needed and I was able to navigate any question of "How To?" almost immeditely. I guess I'm classified as a Computer 2010 Dummie, and this was the perfect book for me.
After Word went through the interface transition and I turned on my new computer, if I hadn't ordered this volume in advance, I would have been totally lost. It made everything so easy. I was back up and running in a weekend. The author has a sense of humor that was entertaining along the way. But it's also great if you are just starting out. Everything is taught as if you just learned how to turn on the computer. It goes way past the basics if you wantinto macros...
I ordered the hard copy of this rather than the download so I could flip pages back and forth easily. The down load has its advantages, too. You can easily search the computer version for your particular problem/question, but it takes I little more effort to search the book's index. The book is well-written and the technical jargon is easy to follow. Would recommend for anyone wishing to hone their WORD processing skills.
Word 2010 For Dummies is loaded with an incredible amount of information and guidance for beginners, on up. Step by step instructions are given for all Word applications and will help solve most issues when using Word 2010 processing. I did find some discrepancies with a few of the instructions and illustrations, but that may be due to the fact that I am only using the version that comes with Windows 7 and not the full Microsoft Word that must be purchased extra.As with most of the other "Dummies" books, this one is no different and is sure to be a great help to those of us less educated in the world of word processing. Recommended. R.E.W.
This is a very comprehensive manual for using MS Word. Such works are most useful as a resource to use when you need it.Unfortunately, like most of its kin, it lacks a really comprehensive index. The more comprehensive a reference is, the moreimportant is the index. To be most useful, I would like to see almost 10 index references for every page of text.
As someone who's been working with Word 2010 for over a year now, I found I still learned great tips and tricks to make me work more efficiently.
I purchased this book to help me with my school papers. Online help is good but there is just something about holding the book. I really helped me and I'm sure it will continue to help me in the future.
I found a "perfect" book for me...one for Dummies! I am not a "techie", but found this book to be very user friendly! I highly recommend it!
