MOS 2010 Study Guide for Microsoft Office SharePoint

MOS 2010 Study Guide for Microsoft Office SharePoint

Rene's rating: StarStarStarStarStar 4.0

On Feb 4, 2013 Rene Modery wrote: Good resource to prepare for the exam
The Study Guide here is, as the name says, intended to help people prepare for the Microsoft Office Specialist – SharePoint 2010 exam. It is not meant for people who are new to SharePoint, but rather targets an audience that already has some experience with SharePoint (for example as a site owner). It helps them by following the “Skills Measured” section of the exam in exact detail. All items listed on the exam page are covered with step-by-step instructions in the book, when needed with some additional background information as well. Geoff explains everything in simple to understand terms, and avoids technical jargon as much as possible. Full Review >

Teaches you how to become more structured and organised when using Outlook to manage email, tasks, and appointments. Shows you how to do things in Outlook 2003, 2007, and 2010. A very solid book with useful advise, but nothing really new for people who already looked at time-management methods and use them. Full Review >

On Oct 6, 2011 Rene Modery wrote: A must have for regular users of Project 2010,
Consisting of more than 1200 pages, this book basically contains everything you need to know about using Project 2010 to manage projects. Not only does it cover the fundamentals, but it also guides you through how to develop a project plan (Part 2), track the progress of your project (Part 3), and get reports about it (Part 4). Additionally, it covers more advanced topics such as how to manage multiple projects (Part 5), how to integrate Project 2010 with other Microsoft products (Part 6, talking about the Office suite and SharePoint), how to manage projects across your company (Part 7), and finally how to customise Project 2010 to suit your needs (Part 8). Each of these parts consists of several chapters, focusing on different topics related to the corresponding part. Full Review >

Successful Project Management: Applying Best Practices and Real-World Techniques with Microsoft Project

When I started reading Successful Project Management: Applying Best Practices and Real-World Techniques with Microsoft Project, I was actually a bit confused for a short while. The reason? I was expecting to read about how to do project management with Microsoft Project, but instead there was nothing about it at all. And why so? Because the author did something very interesting: focusing on the methodology from the PMI (Project Management Institute), and only bringing in Project where required! Full Review >
