Special Edition Using Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007


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

Office Home and Student 2007 is available to ANYONE, regardless of whether you are a student, a teacher, or neither. The only condition Microsoft attaches is the requirement that the software not be used for commercial purposes. For use in the home or classroom, Office Home and Student 2007 is an exceptional deal at a fraction of the cost of the business versions!

   •     No other authoring team in the business is as well recognized and respected as the Office Dream Team; when they speak, even the Office development team at Microsoft listens!

   •     This book is a category killer–one that sets the pace for others to follow!

   •     Tired of Office books that read as though Microsoft employees wrote them? Tired of learning the Microsoft way? Tired of books containing little more than you can pull from the Help system? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you owe it to yourself to get a copy of this book!

   •     If you own a copy of Office Home and Student 2007, you deserve a copy of this book! Here, you’ll find a bevy of previously undocumented tips and tricks that will show you how to harness the power of Office 2007!

   •     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

“Another Special Edition Winner! Clear, concise and right on-target. Everything a student or a home user will need to know in order to master Office 2007.”
