My Take on the Book
This book provides you with an easy to understand complete reference for understanding the new Microsoft 2013. As someone who started using this before reading this I can say that I wish that I had this before, or at least concurrently when I implemented the software. I felt that the book did a great job at keeping things simple and allowing me to have fun while learning too. For anyone that is making a transition form Office 2003, this is a must, as the way in which the programs are set up is completely different. Don' be a dummy, make your life easier and read this book today, you will be thankful that you did!
