5-0 out of 5 stars Use this book and forgetthe F1
I believe that the help included with Excel, is only good for very simple stuff, as soon as you want to get into more involved subjects the Excel help is plain not useful. That's when you would need books like this. This book covers what the title says it does. for other topics (pivot tables etc...)other books are needed. That's a lot of money? for something you didn't even know you need. I agree! But you been here before! That's the only way! So don't get overwhelmed by your 'green pee' colleagues who really had time to master Excel(mainly because they had nothing better do) Buy this book and go dwarf them as you should ;-). This book shows you that it all would have been very simple if Excel help was written by someone who really cared.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really Helps at Work
I have to create a lot of Excel spreadsheets at work, and was always sort of intimidated by the functions in Excel.Instead of using functions, I spent a lot of time entering numbers and then finding the answer by hand, and just typing the answer in an empty cell.If any of the data changed, I would have to do all of the calculations over again, and hope that I didn't make any mistakes. This book explains each of the Excel functions in a really clear and easy to understand way, and walks you through how to use them step by step.I'm using more and more functions in my spreadsheets now.I don't have as many mistakes as before, because the functions do the calculations automatically, even when you change some of the data.I keep this book in my desk and look at it all the time.The people I work for have noticed the difference in the quality of my spreadsheets, and I'm getting a lot of complements.They're even coming to me to ask for advice!I definitely recommend this book if you use Excel at work.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Really Helpful Book
I always found it hard to understand how functions work. It's one thing to use the autosum button to add some numbers together. It's another thing to use functions and know which one to use. But now this Excel book has come to my rescue. The book is well designed by explaining the basics first. Then the book is organized by categories of functions. I recommend it highly! ... Read more

Editorial Review

It goes without saying that if you're taking the GRE you're not really a dummy. But GRE scores are an important part of any graduate-school application--so you need to do your best. Suzee Vlk, long time test-prep specialist and author of several Dummies books, can help. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST RESOURCE
I received nearly perfect scores in all areas of the exam.The testing center Proctor noted that she had never seen such high exam scores!GRE For Dummies prepatory exams were nearly IDENTICAL to the ACTUAL exam.I cannot say enough about this book!

4-0 out of 5 stars Dummies being the key word
This book was helpful in explaining the areas where I needed to improve my skills to take the GRE.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good
I loved the author's jokes and formats of this book. I was disappointed in the lack of math problems to solve and that there wasn't any review problems after each math section, as there is with the verbal section. All in all, I'd recommend this book along with purchasing another GRE review book. ... Read more

This is an excellent book for both beginners and those more knowledgeable about the software. It is well laid out and easy to follow. It can be used as a quick reference or as a learning tool for folks newer to the programs. I have a Student/Teacher Version of the software that has only Word, Excel, Power Point and Access and have already found it quite helpful.

4-0 out of 5 stars Creating your web master piece
What this book does in basic terms is walk you through the process of website conception to managing your website once it is on line and everything in between. It covers all of the information that you will need to get your site up and running. Some of the the subjects are covered very well like the use of CSS, adding graphics, flash animation, design elements, templates, HTML, Meta tags and the use of graphics. All subjects are covered in ample detail.
2-0 out of 5 stars Misses the mark.
I am new to web design but am pretty good with computers.I have been producing and editing music for fun for years.This book is dicey at best.There are good points, but overall it is hard to follow and gives a poor explaination of Dreamweaver's features.Hopefully, the author is better in the classroom than she is in this text or I feel sorry for her students.

4-0 out of 5 stars EASY READ
I love this book!!!Very easy to use and follow, explanations are in english not tech words.I started to create my first website using dreamweaver 8, I read the book it came with, and didn't understand what I was doing.After reading the first two chapters of dreamweaver 8 for dummies, I was starting to create a website like a pro. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Gem, in simple terms.
I revisited this book after about a year, and took the time to really read the first 100 pages. In particular, the author's introduction to OOP via C# classes as data structures first, and asmore complex objects containing data and methods second, helped me really understand this concept --- maybe for the first time. 5-0 out of 5 stars books
I bought "C# for Dummies" for myself and "C# and Game Programming" for my son.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book for VB programmers
Although the "Dummies" title implies a "Beginner" book, this book falls into the "Beginner to Intermediate Developer" range.This is a good book for Visual Basic developers who want to make the conversion to C# or for the beginner. Like all Dummies series, there are ample examples and the author does a great job of explaining the C# language. Windows forms are covered in Chapter 17 and 18 but there is no discussion about Web development or using C# with Active Server Pages (ASP).Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars AIN'T FOR NEWBIES!!
I've always resected the "Dummies" for their simplicity, however, this book is strictly for "near" or wannbe professionals!I do not reccommend this book for the people who want to build their own websites.

5-0 out of 5 stars exactly what I needed
this book was exactly what I needed to begin web design!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Primer
This book is a great starter if you want to learn how to design web pages.While it's not a step-by-step page building guide, it's an excellent source of ideas, theories and practical "how-tos" that will definitely get you going in the right direction.If you're interested in building your own site, you could also be interested in hosting your site after it's built.Check out the "Complete Guide to Web Hosting" on amazon.It's a complete kit with all software and instructions that will let you host your site on your own PC for free.I highly recommend both of these titles together. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed
To say that I was very disappointed in this book is a major understatement.I wish there was a zero star category or a negative star category.
1-0 out of 5 stars Poorly written - not helpful
Do not buy this book. The author is in no way an expert on QuickBooks. Book covers only a few basic functions...even the QuickBooks product startup guide show you how to do more than this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lots of info, but almost too complex to be helpful
One buys Dummies books to shortcut learning down to only the most effective and productive knowledge needed.Quickbooks itself is a lot to learn, and so is this book.It has been a trial-and-error journey becoming proficient with Quickbooks, and I have opened the Dummies book several times only to find that the Quickbooks Help option was more supportive.The book is chocked full of information.So, if you have the time to sit with the book and the program, it may be useful for you.If you don't have a lot of time to actually use Quickbooks like me, this may not be the book to buy. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent overview but light on examples
I am an experienced SolidWorks user who was looking for supplemental information to build my knowledge base and help me transition from SW 2005 to SW 2006.This manual is a decent general reference but it lacks any detailed examples and the CD that comes with it is mostly SW promotional stuff.I bought it because of the low price ($20)Also, there is no information on advanced features such as surface modeling

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not recommend
I wanted a book that would provide a high level of overall understanding of SW quickly.I am new to SW.I've been teaching AutoCAD for over 4 years.I purchased this book with an understanding of the Dummy series.I was very disappointed with the lack of information for the new user.It seems that the book is targeted towards a user which has a basic understanding of the Software and that needs to understand the changes between the last version and now. I was not amused or informed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good book, recommended by Cadalyst too
I really liked this book and though that it was a funny and interesting way to learn a lot more about SolidWorks.It was very clearly written (but not boring) and had a lot of very specific examples you could follow along with.

It's sad to see that so many computer users seem to have no sense of humor. I, for one, appreciate a book that approaches such a dry subject with a smirk and lightens the weighty technical jargon with an occasional witty aside.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest thing since sliced bread
When Microsoft took an elegant simple schema from UNIX and redesigned it into a convoluted might mare called "Active Directory" it was time for this book. Turns out that "Active Directory" is not active or a directory; who would have guessed? Well this book starts you off with correcting concepts and even lets you know that with the new terminology that the definition of "domain" has been changed.5-0 out of 5 stars A great little book
One of my students told me about this book and brought it to class. I hadn't expected so much technical content from a Dummies book. This little book really should be the starting point for anyone interested in Active Directory.

3-0 out of 5 stars A decent book of negligible usefulness
The fantastic complexity of Windows 2000 Active Directory almost makes the title of this book an oxymoron. Win2K presents a huge paradigm shift to network administrators, since the Active Directory is a completely new, radically different beast from what Windows NT was. Understanding AD and how it works takes patience...it isn't accidental that there are 1000+ page books out there on setting up and maintaining an AD infrastructure. This book doesn't aim to help you do specific tasks in AD, but what it does very well is explain in basic terms what AD is and does, how it it structured, and give you the frame of reference you need before you delve further in. But I'm not sure how many people need to [pay] for this book when there are other books out there that deal much more extensively in the workings of AD. The bottom line is that computer enthusiasts curious about the central feature of Win2K and newbie administrators of Win2K who have little or no experience with NT4 will find it a useful primer on AD. For anyone else, it's probably better to put the [money] toward one of the more detailed, albeit less plainspoken, AD guides. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book at Just the Right Technical Level
I've often thought that computer books tend to leave out the first forty pages or so that tell you the broad picture of just what it is that you are trying to do. This book can almost be viewed as the front end of any number of dedicated networking books that start off just about where this one ends. Those books then go off in great detail about the arcane details that as the author of this book says 'apply mostly to networks at places like NASA and the CIA.'
5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book!
This is really a cool book.I am not currently in the feild, and its not too in depth to the point where you get bored, but it gives you just enough information to get by, and also how and where to look if you want more info.Great Book, easy read.

When you purchase a TI-89, you should be either directed to purchase the Dummies book for it, or it should be included with the device.

4-0 out of 5 stars Mastering Photoshop Basics
My husband and I are taking a beginning Photoshop class at the local adult school. Instead of a more extensive and difficult text we chose to supplement the class with Photoshop Elements 4 For Dummies. It moves inmore logical sequence than the class and enabled us to begin editing our photos immediately. It also allowed us to focus onclass instruction without taking notes.

3-0 out of 5 stars Photoshop Elements 4 For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech))
Good reference for ideas of how to do almost anything in Photoshop.

5-0 out of 5 stars Software that's getting ever more powerful
Thee seems to be a trend in software that they have to keep comming up with new releases to get people to send in more money. But after version three or four, it seems that the new features that they are adding aren't really features that you'd use. Look at Microsoft Word, which of the new features do you really use? But also look at WordPad. It's grown until it's about the equivalent of Word 3.0 or something like that. It's faster, smaller, easier to use and pretty much does what you want, in some cases even better than Word itself.

4-0 out of 5 stars This book is now obsolete.
I bought this book and quickly discovered that Visual Book 6 is no longer the latest tool for VB programming.Microsoft has introduced Visual Basic 2005--which you can download free from Microsoft.
4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Starter Book
I used this book, and found it very helpful to begin writing vb code.The only drawback is that it is of course covers only the basic stuff with very little background info.If you want to get started in VB, I would suggest this book to anyone.

4-0 out of 5 stars First Visual Basic book
When I was trying to make the upgrade from Visual Basic 4.0 to Visual Basic 6.0, this was the first book that I bought. This book is very easy to read and there are ample examples to illustrate each principle that the author is trying to teach you. I combined this books with the 4 "Learn to Program Visual Basic" books by John Smiley to give me a solid foundation in Visual Basic 6.0.The cartoons in this book will reduce down the stress of trying to learn something new.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A True Reference for the Rest of Us
This is my first review of a book, so please allow me a few mistakes. I am a chemist who is being forced, by work circumstances, to become more of an IT person than I thought possible. I will be administering a client-server system in our laboratory. I needed to find a book that would expand on the very limited knowledge that I currently possess. I found that book in "Windows Server 2003 for Dummies". The first couple of chapters are basic network setups, after that they got more in depth and to the point of what I needed to know. I'm obviously still learning and I use the book as a constant reference. I have since purchased "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 for Dummies". I only hope I find this book as useful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what the title says...
...it provides a Windows Server 2003 reference for people who are starting from scratch (a.k.a. Dummies). I'm really shocked by the other reviews. This book promises no coverage whatsoever of any exam objectives for Microsoft's exams. I am a, sometimes blunt, redneck from West Virginia (now transplanted to Ohio), and I must say that only a true dummy would buy this book to prepare for an exam. In that light only should the book be condemned (I have a real problem with the whole "for dummies" series as an adult educator myself, but that's another story for another review.), in that a true dummy buying the book is probably making a bad decision anyway - as they do not have the capacity to make an educated decision, since, by definition, a dummy (according to webster: one without intelligence; and intelligence is a lack of the ability to learn) cannot become educated. In the end, the market for the "for dummies" books should be about .001 percent since that's about how many people would be "dummies".
1-0 out of 5 stars Useless Book
I wish they has 0 stars as a choice to rate this book. This book is for someone who has very little experience or who has never installed a server. I usually like the dummies books as they are easier to read and understand but this one was a DUD!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Concise Overview to Get One Started
You can't watch television these days without getting bombarded with ads for on line brokerage companies. What's been missing has been a centralized source for information about the whole thing. This book provides that source. It's not complete - if it were it would be so big that you couldn't carry it around - but it's a great start.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great guide for online investing
