Special Edition Using Microsoft® Office 2007

THE ONLY OFFICE BOOK YOU NEED

We crafted this book to grow with you, providing the reference material you need as you move toward Office proficiency and use of more advanced features. If you buy only one book on Office 2007, Special Edition Using Microsoft® Office 2007 is the only book you need.

If you own a copy of Office 2007, you deserve a copy of this book! Although this book is aimed at the Office veteran, Ed and Woody’s engaging style will appeal to beginners, too. Written in clear, plain English, readers will feel as though they are learning from real humans and not Microsoft clones. Sprinkled with a wry sense of humor and an amazing depth of field, this book most certainly isn’t your run-of-the-mill computer book. You should expect plenty of hands-on guidance and deep but accessible reference material.

This isn’t your Dad’s Office! For the first time in a decade, Microsoft has rolled out an all-new user interface. Menus? Gone. Toolbars? Gone. For the core programs in the Office family, you now interact with the program using the Ribbon—an oversize strip of icons and commands, organized into multiple tabs, that takes over the top of each program’s interface. If your muscles have memorized Office menus, you’ll have to unlearn a lot of old habits for this version.

## Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Resource Book I have purchased previous editions of books authored by Woody Leonhard and Ed Bott, for Reference and Home Study of the Microsoft Office system and I highly recommend their books. The look intimidating at first, as they are very thick and full of lots of technical information, but with these books, you can master the Microsoft Office 2007 in a short period of time. This book allows the home user like myself, to learn the most useful parts of the Microsoft Office 2007; the programs such as Word, Access, Excel, Publisher, Outlook, One Note, and Powerpoint so that a person can use and navigate around the office system wth ease and confidence. The book is compartmentized in a way that you can focus on one program aspect at a time, or learn multi-tasking aspects of Office at the same time. I would recommend as a person reads the book, to have your office 2007 turned on your computer and as you read, you can navigate in office at the same time to get the most out of the book and learn the tricks and master the program as you study the book. I have tried other books on Office 2003, but ended up buying the Office 2003 edition by Woody and Ed, and when looking for the Office 2007 reference books, this was my FIRST and ONLY choice that was required. The cover all aspects in a user friendly manner and the book is easy to read and instructions are easy to follow. I would highly recommend this book for both new and seasoned users of the Microsoft Office platforms.
