This fast-paced book gives you the basics of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access so you can start using the new versions of these major Office applications right away.
Unlike every previous version, "Office 2007" offers a completely redesigned user interface for each program.
Microsoft has replaced the familiar menus with a new tabbed toolbar (or "ribbon"), and added other features such as "live preview" that lets you see exactly what each option will look like in the document before you choose it.
This is good news for longtime users who never knew about some amazing Office features because they were hidden among cluttered and outdated menus.
Adapting to the new format is going to be a shock - especially if you're a longtime user.
