I hope he doesn't take it the wrong way..

Posted 12 August 2008 - 10:16 AM

So my executive director is going on a business trip to Cordova, Alaska this afternoon, and he's bringing with him a program to use while he's down there, Microsoft Office Project 2003. Yesterday before I left he asked me if I could pick him up a user-manual/guide at a book store because apparently he doesn't know how to use Project at all.

So I got him Microsoft Office Project 2003 For Dummies... He's not in yet but this could be interesting. It could go both ways hahah..

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I've read a few For Dummies books before. I didn't really care for them. I've read the one on Office 98 and The ACT for dummies.

I read the ACT for dummies not to long ago, it was kinda helpful, but most of it was just blah, blah, and it kinda treated me like, well, a dummy.
