All-In-One Office 2010 Reference

  • Aug 16, 2010
'Office 2010: The Missing Manual' by Nancy Conner & Matthew MacDonald is an absolute gem of a book. With 900+ pages of material covering Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and so much more, this is the definitive reference item for all heavy Office users that want to ramp up as quickly and efficiently as possible. Broken up over 31 chapters, this book logically separates the different applications and uses of the Office program suite. Focusing heavily on not just the use of the apps but the differences with previous versions, this is another grand slam by the 'Missing Manual' line of books.

The only person that I really couldn't recommend this for is if you are a user of a particular application in the Office suite. For you I would recommend on picking up one of the particular books that delve more into detail than this book does. Only gripe is the lack of color but that isn't enough to not recommend this highly.

Awesome books, incredible job by one of the best book lines out there today.

Six Things to Love about Office 2010
