Publisher Comments:

The primary goal of this GO! Series title is to teach Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 quickly and easily, with an approach that is based on clearly-defined projects. A key feature of the book is the use of Microsoft procedural syntax: steps begin with where the action is to take place, followed by the action itself. The instruction is error-free, clearly written, and logically arranged. This book provides users with the skills to solve business problems using the computer as a tool. GO! with Microsoft PowerPoint 2007, Brief, 1/e contains a CD-ROM for additional learning opportunities. This edition covers the following topics: getting started with PowerPoint; designing a presentation; formatting a presentation using animation, tables, and charts. Ideal for students and individuals seeking a project-based introduction to PowerPoint 2007.
