Book Review: In the Trenches with Microsoft Office Project 2007

In the Trenches with Microsoft Office Project 2007Project 2007 is a complex & powerful tool for Project management. By taking over the number crunching & analysis part, it helps Project Managers conserve time and focus on decision making aspects. In the Trenches with Microsoft Office Project 2007 by Elaine Marmel shows how to use Project 2007 for various Project management situations in about 350 odd pages. In a part cookbook, part tutorial style the author takes the reader through common scenarios that a PM can face, suggests best practices and offers useful tips.

As the author admits, this book is not specifically a guide for Project 2007. It is ill-suited for beginners to Project 2007. It does not target any specific edition of Project 2007. I feel the contents could have been organized and presented in a better way to make it more engaging. I love it when key points are summarized at the end of each chapter (as in Code Complete or some of the Microsoft Certification guides). That way, the gist of the chapters are sticky & more memorable. I sorely missed it in this book.

If I had to rate this book in Amazon style, I would give it 3 stars out of 5
