Becoming proficient in Microsoft Office isn’t easy. You have to master a minimum
of four programs and as many as seven, depending on which edition of Office is
installed on your PC. You have to use both sides of your brain (the analytical and the
artistic), sometimes in the same program at the same time. And you’re expected to
remember the ins and outs of a program you might use only once every few weeks or months.
It’s little wonder that most of us are comfortable with one or two Office programs and flail
around in frustration when we need to use one of the others. When you’re using a
program that’s less familiar to you, you’re so busy trying to figure out how to accomplish basic
tasks that you don’t even think about time-saving strategies and advanced features and
capabilities.
That’s where we come in. We wrote this topic from scratch, with the goal of delivering
exactly what you need to become productive with the five core applications in Office
2010—Word, Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, and Outlook. We provide a cram course in
each program, covering the core features and technologies and suggesting
productivityenhancing expert tips to help you work smarter.
We’re pretty certain that most of our readers have at least a passing familiarity with Office,
so we won’t waste your time with tedious history lessons and tutorials. In this introductory
chapter, we offer a whirlwind tour of what’s new and what’s changed from your previous
Office edition, along with a basic road map to this topic. Fasten your seatbelts!
