This book assumes no prior knowledge and is great for novice project users It has small self contained lessons that guide the reader through creating, refining, pubishing and managing projects using Project 2003 It concentrated on the tool and unlike some books doesn t tell you how to manage your project which I think makes it quite well focussed.However, if you have used project to manage even a few projects, 50% or of this book is no good to you.I have used Project for many years and bought the book to exploit some advanced features of this version and found myself than a little disappointed.There are some advanced techniques that are not in the book, which surprised me The book concentrates a fair proportion to Project Server which I don t think is necessary for most.Buy this book if you want excellent basic trainig at your own pace Don t buy it if you want to learn advanced hints and tips. Please be aware that if you purchase this book as an ebook there is no where to download the CD contents that are essential for the book I assumed that Microsoft, having released this as an ebook, would have provided a website where you could download the exercise files I should have know better, Microsoft never think anything through It took half a day to contact Microsoft to find this out as there support for anything is useless. This book is well written and clear with lots of follow along activities While I m pretty new to Project, I still found the pace exhaustingly slow It s a bit hard to skip ahead as you don t really know when the good stuff is going to come in It s done this way to allow you to work either from start to end, or jump from topic to topic.I can t fault them for this, but as I was trying to learn everything about the program, I found the pace so painfully slow that it was a bit discouraging.I think this book is best for either a person who does not have a lot of computer experience and really wants their hand held at every step, or someone who just needs a reference to look up particular techniques If you are fairly savvy and are trying to learn quickly, you may find this a bit of a drag.4 Stars because it s good at what it does, but not 5 because for some it ll just be too dull.
