Microsoft Office 2010 for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide, written by best-selling author Steve Schwartz, has been extensively rewritten to provide expanded coverage of the core Office applications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and also provides a thorough introduction to the Office Web Apps. Coverage of each application is jam-packed with information and tips that not only explain HOW to perform a task, but WHY you need this procedure and WHEN it's best to use it.

Microsoft Office for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide provides in-depth instructions on many of the new features and changes introduced in Office 2010, such as the following:

Steve Schwartz is uniquely qualified and readers benefit from his 30+ years of experience as a software expert, technical support director, magazine editor, and writer. Steve has written almost 60 books, many on Office and other Microsoft products, and has been using Office since the first version. Although this book is geared toward the beginning through intermediate user, Steve won¹t waste your time with pages of stories and analogies before actually discussing the topic at hand. Each page is clearly focused on the needs of the reader. In fact, Steve’s guiding principal in creating this and his many other Visual QuickStart Guides is “The Three C’s.” The material must be clear, concise, and correct.
