    4-0 out of 5 stars excel
    this is a real good book if you want to get the basic of it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I can't find anything on pivot tables
    I already knew almost everything in this book, so I was disappointed when it arrived and I started looking through it. I ordered it hoping it would give me a simple explanation "for dummies" on what pivot tables are and how to create/work with them.They're not even listed in the index!

    This book is well-written, easily understood and met all my expectations.

    This book is well written and well laid out. It can be used as a reference or as a learning tool for those less knowledgeable on computer stuff. I just advanced from Windows 98 and this made the leap/transition much easier and less confounding.

    MY FIRST COMPUTER...(DID NOT HELP THAT THE COMPUTER WAS A LEMON, AND THE COMPANY REPLACED IT)I NOT ONLY DID NOT UNDERSTAND "COMPUTER" LANGUAGE, I DID NOT EVEN KNOW HOW TO TURN IT OFF WITH OR WITHOUT POWER-BUTTON.ANY ONE WANTING TO KNOW "HOW TO" SHOULD GET THIS BOOK.LIKE IT SAYS..YOU DON'T SIT AND READ IT LIKE A NOVEL...YOU HAVE A QUESTION...YOU LOOK IT UP IN THE BOOK...NOW IF SOMEONE WOULD COME UP WITH A COMPUTER DICTIONARY FOR ALL THE TERMS ETC. USED IN "COMPUTER LANGUAGE"!!!!BUY THIS...YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Its not a teaching book.
    The book for the most part is having a discussion with you about Windows XP.Offering comments or critiques.It is not a book that I would recommend for learning via book.A Few areas actually go into depth.I see it as a PowerPoint presentation discussion about basics XP and should have been sold as.It lacked detail in networking and wireless needed for many user/owner issues. ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars This Dummies is a mess!
    Dummies books have been a staple of my computing/software resource library for a long time.This book was very disappointing.If you're looking for an organized presentation of the functions and capabilities of Adobe 7, leave this on the shelf.There are few visual examples in the book and very few tutorials that lead you through a topic in any organized way at all.To get something out of this book, I found myself jumping all over the place, following topic and function chapter references tossed in all too frequently, sifting through meaningless and annoying chatty writing, trying to piece together a tool's functionality on my own.And did I mention the writing style?Distracting, distracting, distracting.I felt like I was sitting in a computer class for octogenarians with ADD. Get to the point!!Leave it on the shelf.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works Great
    This book is easy to use and understand. I was comfortable using the program in a week.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Reference I Have Found
    I started a new job in the Information Reporting Office of a State Education Department.I am fluent in SPSS programming, but have had little experience with Access. My job turns out to entail retrieving many data files in an Access format from a master database stored in Oracle on a mainframe using ODBC.I have had to learn quickly how to manipulate those databases to obtain the information needed to put into files for Federal reporting purposes.I needed a comprehensive reference to Access that would allow me to learn how to use Access to perform data manipulations that are easy to perform with Statistical Analysis packages such as SPSS. For example, every School is assigned a 12-digit code, and each sequence of two or four digits embedded in the code has a distinct meaning, such as a reference to the county of location or type of school.So I had to learn quickly how to "parse" the long "string" field into new separate string fields made up of the component parts of the 12-digit string. I also needed to aggregate data on field values to obtain counts and sums.These are basic functions, easy to look up or find in the index when using a program like SPSS.These sorts of functions do have counterparts in Access, but the indexes of such books are geared to the business user and do not refer to such functions with the standard terms such as "parse," "string function," or "aggregate" that are familiar to people used to using statistical packages to manipulate data.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Index is awful
    Let's face it: When you want to get started you don't sit down, read through 800 pages, then get to it.What you really do is read a little, skimming what you really need to get started. When you need to know something, you look it up.There's the rub.Unfortunately, ALL of these books suffer from the problem of having a very bad index.I know the index spans many pages, however, I have seldom found ANYTHING I wanted by looking it up under the obvious heading.For that matter, often the subject is not to be found anywhere in the index at all.Which means it either isn't covered in the book, or it can not be found easily.The "9 in 1" books thing sounds good, until you realize that there is not necessarily an integrated approach to really teaching the whole of Access and the relationship between its parts.The real problem is that Access is layered on top of 3 'languages' (VB, SQL, and Macros) and has different ways of getting things done for its three main parts (Queries, Forms, and Reports).(And VB even supports 2 different object models, DAO and ADO.) It is often unlclear how all these different areas interact.They can interact together easily, but why is a function spelled one way in an expression, a different way in VB and again different in SQL?There ought to be a cross reference table translating between them.Or when can you nest aggregate functions and when can't you?Much of what Access is secretly doing is translating your groupings and expressions into SQL with Unions and inner/outer-joins or what not.None of this inner working is explained, leaving you clueless when Access refuses to do what it thinks you want to do.Yes, Access is a confusing product owing to the way different parts were cobbled together.But it can also be very easy to do certain things, like turning a report's groupings inside out.Some of these things are explained in this book, but most are not.A comprehensive index would be a start, but they would of course need the text to go with it.You'll have better luck finding specific information by searching on the internet.I have found many great and helpful web sites, but I still haven't found any one book on MS Access that comes close to really explaining it properly.And none with an even decent index.It sounds great to read on a book's jacket that it will cover VB or XML or web stuff, but the important stuff is often overlooked.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A good guide for dummies and others
    I am a complete dummy when it comes to Access.I have had very frustrating experiences trying to use Access in the past.I am now using the guide to design and develop a relational database.It's written in simple language and goes through everything in a reasonable order, with the more advanced programming-related chapters at the end. I have a feeling this book will become my best friend as I work through this project. ... Read more

    Excel 2003 All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies is a great overall book for Excel 2003.It will get you going on Excel 2003 even if you have a minimal amount of experience in Excel.Introduces you to formulas, charts, pivot tables and other subjects that most people need in order to fully utilizing the power of Excel.Written very well and easy to understand.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners and not for reference
    I rate this book poor. It is badly laid out. Unless you already know how to use Excel, this book would be of no value to you. It's impossible to find anything, and not enough relevent illustrations. The For Dummies series is off my list of reference books. Save your money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars There's tons of useful information in this book.
    I use Excel at work all the time and this book is always within an arm's reach. The formulas and functions chapters are especially helpful -- as are the ones on PivotTables, building Macros, and sharing data with other programs. If you're only going to buy one book on Excel, buy this one! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book gets you going quickly with Microsoft CRM 3.0

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ecellent for covering SEO basics
    This book is the best start to learning SEO. It covers all the SEO basics which may be all you need to get a decent listing. I'd say that the basics are 90% of rankings. My sites which I can't list due to the review policies enjoys about 5 keywords on page 1 of Google and Yahoo. It would have been a 5 star rating but I felt not enough changed from the prior revision.
    5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE this book!
    While in the process of working on my new website, I came across this book and ordered it right away based on other reviews. I was not disappointed. It's a must for anyone getting ready to launch a new site or anyone wanting to drive more traffic to their already built site. Even if you think you know a lot about keywords and SEO, this is an excellent buy. It did for me what a company specializing in SEO wanted to do for $8,000. I'm sure the SEO company would have provided an excellent service, but by reading this book, I've learned how to do it myself and will now know how to tweak my site in the future.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for Newbies
    If you're up-to-date with all the latest and greatest this is mainly a review. However, if you're not completely familiar with the terms and usage of SEO this is a great book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good starter book
    We had already begun to create the database so much of the book was not necessarily helpful. But there were many tips and hints that helped us improve on the database. I would reccomend this book especially for those who have never opened Access before and for those want to tweak and improve their current database to be more user-friendly or professional looking.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Why pay when you can get it free?
    This book is poorly designed and poorly presented.It starts out by assuming you know something about Access, or about databases, and only after a few chapters addresses the needs of beginners.The author's style lacks conciseness and clarity, and at times reading this book seems to get in the way of learning. And then there are (yawn) the endless attempts at humor.A light approach to a technical subject can be fine, but when you have to wade through it to get to instructional material it's a little much.Microsoft has free on-line tutorials for Access 2003.After giving up on this book, I used them, liked them, and learned from them.And, they're FREE.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Good Fast Way to Get Started
    This is a quick and dirty guide to using Access to get information into and out of a database. Access is part of Microsoft's Office Suite. It's designed for small, personal use database applications. This book fits that philosophy quite well. It uses the front end philosophy that Microsoft has done so well to enable a database to be designed, an input form to be created and an output report to be generated.

    When I first purchased the Frontpage Software I should have bought this book at the same time, in fact they should actually be sold together.It is very well written and a very good guide once you are up and running.I would recommend this book to anyone who has a basic understanding of MS Office products.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible for a Help Book
    This is a terrible book. I am a total novice in FrontPage and web page creation but have lots of experience in computers including programming years ago.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Invaluable Resource
    This book has been every thing I had hoped it would be...an invaluable reference to have at one's elbow for quick help!

    5-0 out of 5 stars TIP S & TRICKS
    I thought I was an Office guru (I use the software suite daily), but even I found numerous helpful tips and tricks to increase my office automation efficiency. For Dummies books are a great reference series and this one did not let me down. It is a little light in the Access area for my needs, but it draws the reader/student step-by-step through creating/using with each of the Office programs. So simple to read, follow, and understand, I've incorporated it into my 12-year old's homeschool curriculum and he loves it. Well worth the price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A superb book, easy to read and understand
    I found this book to be a real treasure -- easy to read, easy to look up information in, and easy on the eyes. For once in a computer book, the screen shots are clear and cogent to the text.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Helpful!
    "Digital SLR Cameras" is helpful for someone trying to decide whether to upgrade from a point-and-shoot camera to an SLR.Photos comparing the two camera types, as well as illustrating various SLR features are provided throughout the material.Noise, depth of field, lens dust, exposure, histograms, different file storage formats, infrared options, and basic editing were all covered.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Good Book, but...
    Having recently decided to move to the DSLR world, I needed to learn how to shoot pictures in mode other than Full Auto.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring.This book will get you moving with your DSLR
    Anyone who wants to learn about digital SLR cameras and photography should have this book at their side.It starts off simple with plenty of good information for beginners, but then dumps into more advanced ideas and techniques.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great help for the new user.
    I purchased several copies of the book for my sales team whose technical proficiency was across the board.While all of the material is covered in the online help available from Salesforce.com, several team members felt much more comfortable with a book that they could hold.It is a great help in getting all of the team members to use the same nomenclature which is the first step in any sales "methodology" becoming effective.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Dumming it down for an admitted dummy
    As a new user to the CRM program, Salesforce.com, I was overwhelmed by the amount of information presented on the website.My first thought was, "I wish somebody would writed a "Dummy" book for the program.I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was being released and ordered my copy immediately.I received my copy shortly and began reading and applying the data presented in the book.
    5-0 out of 5 stars You'd be a dummy not to buy this book!
    "Salesforce.com for Dummies" is, hands down, the best reference guide for salesforce.com users and administrators alike.Tom Wong has done an excellent job with this book.It is packed with useful tips that will help even the most experienced users and/or administrators get more from Salesforce.com.If you are ready to maximize your investment in Salesforce.com, pick up "Salesforce.com for Dummies."You'd be a dummy not to buy this book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Two thumbs up to the author...
    Being given the task of constructing an intranet for our company's service desk felt a bit daunting, but then being advised you're going to use Sharepoint 2003 (which I'd never heard of) just added to the pressure...
    4-0 out of 5 stars Sharepoint for Dummies helped a dummy like me!
    Being a Beginner and having to teach myself how to use Sharepoint, I was stymied by many of the technical books on the subject.Finding Sharepoint for Dummies helped alot! Vanessa Williams book is easy to understand and answered many of the questions I couldn't find answers to anywhere else.I still have a lot to learn about Sharepoint and Ms. Williams has been very helpful to shed extra light on difficult problems.Thank you very much for all your help! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Start
    This manuel was an excellent start for some of us "dummies" out there.Though I have signed up for a Project Class to be taken in person, this book as definately helped me to get by with a little help from the Dummy Writers.
    4-0 out of 5 stars a real dummy review
    great, worked for me.use this and the on line tutorial

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great place to start
    Facing the new year with numerous relatively small projects that I felt were out of control, I resolved to take action. I believed that my planning tasks were unlikely to tax the abilities of Project 2003, and was not really interested in knowing every detail of the software. I picked up this book, and was able to read the sections of interest--about 75% of the content--on a flight from Atlanta to San Jose. I was not disappointed. By the evening of January 10, my three most pressing projects were organized, resources were assigned, and realistic finish dates had been determined. The book gave me the information I needed to get results without false starts. While the attempts at folksy humor can be a tad annoying, the prose is generally clear and understandable. I doubt this is the book for you if you are managing a major project with dozens of people. However, if your projects are jobs like press releases, webinars, and minor software releases, you will likely be well served by it. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Useful and a good starting point
    If you want to sell "stuff" this is a good place to start. All the information is here for opening a store. Follow the steps and your doors will be open. But maybe you don't want to sell "stuff" and have an idea you'd like to try out, if so I recommend "Internet Riches" by Scott Fox.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book For the New Startup
    This guy knows what he is talking about. I did exactly what he said when I was setting up my on-line business. The only thing was that this book didn't exist then and I had to learn it all one step at a time. Well, I guess that's the only way any of us learn anything.
    2-0 out of 5 stars To basic and not enough practical guidance
    This book was clearly for beginners only.Although the book says "for dummies", you'd really HAVE to be a dummy to get much out of this.The book is simply too vague when talking about important internet concepts and doen't show you how to REALLY get an online business going.I personally would reccomend 33 Days to Profits by Yank Silverwww.33daystoprofits.com as a much better way to get PRACTICAL advice on starting an online business. ...
