Free ebook: First Look Microsoft Office 2010

We promised a more permanent home for this free ebook by Katherine Murray: here it is (in XPS) and here it is (in PDF). 14 chapters: dive in and enjoy!

Part I, “Envision the Possibilities,” introduces you to the changes in Office 2010 and shows you how you can make the most of the new features to fit the way you work today. Chapter 1, “Welcome to Office 2010,” gives you a play-by-play introduction to new features; Chapter 2, “Express Yourself Effectively and Efficiently,” details the great feature enhancements and visual effects throughout the applications; and Chapter 3, “Work Anywhere with Office 2010,” explores the flexibility factor by presenting a set of scenarios that enable users to complete their work no matter where their path takes them.

Part II, “Hit the Ground Running,” focuses on each of the Office 2010 applications in turn, spotlighting the key new features and showing how they relate to the whole. These chapters provide a how-to guide for many of the top features you’re likely to use right off the bat, and they offer inspiring ideas on how to get the most from your favorite applications.

Part III, “Next Steps with Office 2010,” zooms up to the big picture and provides examples to help you think through interoperability. How often do you use the various Office applications together? Customer research shows that people often don’t realize how well the applications work together as a complete system—which means they might be laboring over items they could easily incorporate from somewhere else. This part of the book provides examples for integrating the applications and explores Office 2010 security and training opportunities, as well.

  6. Rev says:

    Now if I could only find a free one of these for Office 2007.

  7. Dinesh, please point readers to our sites. We track downloads of our free ebooks, and download numbers are the only way we can justify free ebooks.  Tracking download numbers from our download center enables us to continue to produce and distribute free ebooks in the future.

  8. How about creating an EPUB version of this, and also posting it here ? I was reading you absolutely wonderful eBook and see that it is a nice overview of the cool new Word features, and I noticed that the PDF version I downloaded from here was created using Adobe InDesign CS4.

    Can I assume that one could save as EPUB from Word 2010 ?

  9. Uzzie says:

    I’ve downloaded and no problem to open it with Adobe Reader 9.0. And it’s a "secured" PDF.

  11. Jim Miley Jr says:

    I, like another reader , could use this for an older version, 2007. I will look at this though because I currently have no books on MS Office at present and I"m certain that it  will still be helpful. Thankfully I live with two ladies who are rather proficient with MS Office.
