    This has me thinking of purchasing the book. I actually use Microsoft project and I know I am not using it to its fullest potential and this book sounds like it can help me get to that level. I do have a question, will there be a CD to help with visual learners or to do practice runs on certain aspects of the software?

    As a novice Microsoft Project user who works in a technical manufacturing environment; there are significant opportunities to improve simultaneous product launches with the application of effective PM skills. This book looks like an excellent resource to improve my general project management skills while learning the tricks of the trade when it comes to Project. I look forward to it.

    In response to the demand for interactive tutorials based on the book content, a new website page is currently being constructed as an additional resource for this book.

    Advisicon also offers a Managing Projects with Microsoft Project 2010 class in our interactive training room in Vancouver, WA. which is highly effective in learning this material and an excellent resource for visual learners.

    I’m looking forward to reading this book. I’ve really been trying to use Microsoft Project for awhile now, and the software just has so many tools I have yet to utilize. I’m very excited to discover the all the short cuts so I can better organize my business.

    I’m looking forward to adding this book to my list of resources for clients. I frequently encourage them to use the software, but get a slight resistance from the older guys. This book will be a valued tool for me to bring them to the light.
