Title: Microsoft Office 2000 Introductory Concepts and Techniques Enhanced
Publisher: Course Technology
Authors: Gary B. Shelly, Thomas J. Cashman, Misty E. Vermaat
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

This is my favorite book for learning Office 2000. It starts with a brief section on computers and a brief section on Windows, then continues with sections on Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, and Outlook. The sections on these application programs have sample projects that guide you with clear instructions and color illustrations. In the process of doing the projects, you learn specific skills.
A very nice feature is an appendix at the end of the book that lists the skills required for Microsoft Office User Specialist (MOUS) certification, and what page in the book each skill is shown.
For further study, there is an Advanced version of this book, and also a Post-Advanced version. The Shelly Cashman series also has numerous books on a wide variety of computer related topics. In addition to the Shelly Cashman series, Course Technology has two other series that I like: the New Perspectives series, and the Illustrated series.
Other related series that I like include Ruth Maran's Simplified series and Teach Yourself Visually series. And there is always Microsoft Press: I like the Step-by-Step series and the Running Series.

The Right Book at the Right Time!

Harald's done a terrific job of reading our minds: he addresses all the digital printing questions and concerns that plague today's photographers and printers. If you don't find the answer in this book, you're probably asking the wrong question.
There are lots of digital books that we like. This is the book we need!

ASP is not only VBScript!

Before I read this book I thought the ASP technology could be good for little web applications only. Now I use ASP as basic technology to build all my applications. Finally I discovered an important reality: ASP is not only VBScript!

Software included (minisap) does not work with XP?!

Book seems to be all right at first! The software that comes along with the book, does not work with windows-xp if xp has all of the latest upgrades and patches from microsoft!?!!?. The so called "Object list" will not show!There are patches available for MiniSAP to cure this problem, but it is impossible to get the patches to minisap witout a licence, and you don't get a licence along with minisap!!!!????
What a waste off money and time! I should have read these reviews before buying the useless book and software!
Shame on the SAP comunity and on the authors of this book!!!
Amazon.com should warn buy'ers with "up to date XP" on their computer!
