Item description for Ultimate Learning Guide to Microsoft Office Project 2007 (Epm Learning) by Dale A. Howard; Gary L. Chefetz...
Welcome to the Ultimate Learning Guide to Microsoft Office Project 2007. You selected the right book if you seek a complete learning experience and reference manual for managing projects using the Microsoft Office Project 2007 desktop application. Our goal in writing this book is to teach you how to use the software effectively. We take a systematic approach to the topical ordering which follows the Project Management Institute (PMI) standard. The first 12 modules teach you foundational skills by following the project life cycle. In these modules, you learn how to define a new project, plan your project with tasks, resources, and assignments, analyze the Critical Path, baseline your project, enter actual progress, analyze variance, revise your project, report project progress, and then close out the project. The next 10 modules teach you advanced techniques for using Microsoft Office Project 2007. You learn in-depth knowledge about standard and custom Fields, Calendars, scheduling, costing, Critical Path analysis, managing risks, and exchanging project data with other applications. You learn how to locate and level overallocated resources, how to create and use a shared Resource Pool file and a master project, and how to record and write macros in VBA. Throughout each module, we provide a generous amount of Notes, Warnings, and Best Practices. Notes call your attention to important additional information about a subject. Warnings help you to avoid the most common problems experienced by others and Best Practices provide tips for using the tool based on our field experience. After reading this book, we believe that you will be much more effective using Microsoft Office Project 2007. Download the sample files from the official book site and work your way through the hands-on lessons in each module. By the time you complete the lessons, you'll be an expert too!

Difficult to Follow Jul 6, 2008
This book is difficult to follow. I would not suggest anyone use this text as a beginner guide. Some of the instructions do not match the images for indicated results. This lack of congruence, causes frustration and much lost time. I would suggest instead the Step by Step MS Project 2007 by Carl Chatfield, PMP and Timothy Johnson, PMP for someone unfamiliar with the software.
Thank you, Bart Harris
Great Handbook for Project Professional 2007 Dec 18, 2007
This is great book for knowing how to use project professional 2007. I have read many of the books on the shelf, but this is my favorite. It has good explanitions and step-by-step procedures. I will be using it for all my training class in project professional 2007. I highly recommend it to other trainers and managers of a PMO that are using project server and project professional.
Great resource for users learning Project 2007 Jun 28, 2007
Excellent book from two of the best known Project gurus around. In terms of learning content everything is clearly laid out and well explained and the text flows very well. A must have resource for all users of Microsoft Project 2007.
Mostly a Rehash of Project 2003 Jun 21, 2007
A word of caution to those who are proficient in MS Project 2003...this book does NOT segregate new features that come with 2007; existing 2003 functionality is discussed as if you are learning MS Project FOR THE FIRST TIME. If you have used 2003 for any real-world projects, this book will not be very efficient use of your time in learning 2007 features. I think the "Microsoft Office Project 2007 Step by Step" may be more practical for this audience.
And by the way, this is a HUGE book (in terms of overall dimensions and page count) with large print (for unknown reason).
Really the ultimate May 17, 2007
Well yes, this guide starts from the basics and goes all the way, making it fit for the beginner and those wanting to dig deeper alike, but one can argue, don't they all? I want to call this book outstanding, but then I fezel I have to explain where it stands out as compared to other Microsoft Project learning books. There are a few unique advantages I want to highlight: - It handles each topic only once (rather than making one curious in an early chapter and explaining the full truth 10 chapters later) - It goes beyond just teaching the usage with paragraphs clearly marked as "understanding..." which is absolutely necessary for all users of Project; - Finally, the richess and quality of the exercice material with many samples clearly based on life situations: not just "staircase Gantt Charts" but overlapping tasks, well chosen milestones.. In short, it will be an add-on for my teaching.
