Microsoft® OneNote® 2010 Plain & Simple--New from Microsoft Press

October 19, 2011

Sebastopol, CA—"OneNote is an essential part of the Microsoft Office Suite," says author Peter Weverka. "In fact, Microsoft included OneNote (along with Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook) as one of only four programs in its Home & Student version of Office. Nevertheless, many people don't use OneNote. They don't understand its many possibilities, and I wrote the book to remedy that."

Microsoft® OneNote® 2010 Plain & Simple (Microsoft Press, $24.99 USD) shows you the quickest ways to take, organize, and share great notes—with easy-to-follow steps, screenshots, and concise, straightforward language.

Here's what you'll learn:

  • Take notes and organize them with ease
  • Arrange notes in pages, sections, and notebooks
  • Add pictures, drawings, and audio and video clips
  • Apply readymade and custom tags to your notes
  • Link notes to web pages and Microsoft Office files
  • Share your notes and collaborate with others

Here's how you'll learn it:

  • Jump in wherever you need answers
  • Easy-to-follow STEPS and SCREENSHOTS show exactly what to do
  • Handy TIPS teach new techniques and shortcuts
  • Quick TRY THIS! exercises help apply what you learn right away

Weverk continues, "If you're taking notes at a PowerPoint presentation and not using OneNote to take your notes, you're doing yourself a disfavor. OneNote was designed specifically for note taking. You can easily retrieve notes, review notes, and recycle notes into different formats, and readers will be able to quicky get up to speed with this book."
