O'Reilly's New Personal Trainer Series
Imagine you had a personal trainer at your beck and call to help you learn the software you depend on every day. Imagine this trainer had a proven track record of success, didn't treat you like a dummy, and helped you learn by doing--not just by reading about doing. Sound too good to be true? Think again. O'Reilly's Personal Trainer series delivers just such an experience. Light years beyond typical computer books that tack on a CD full of fillerware, they're book/digital packages explicitly designed to be used at your keyboard. You'll read a section and then immediately try out what you've learned by working through the online training course included on the CD.
