Book Description: Microsoft Office is the most popular application suite in the industry. Knowing how to get around and get work done in Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint are essential prerequisites in just about any organization today. Most users only scratch the surface of the Office applications -- they only want to quickly learn the most common, most important tasks for each of the suite's main applications. Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft Office XP in 24 Hours is designed precisely for this beginning-level user -- somebody who doesn't want to become an Office expert but just wants to get productive as quickly and as smoothly as possible. Written by an expert in the field who is familiar with what actual users need to know about Office, the book details the best tools, shortcuts, and ways to accomplish the most common tasks in Office, and avoids the little-used features. The reader can work his way through the entire book at his own pace, or dip into specific lessons or tasks that solve an immediate question or problem.
