Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0761514201, Paperback)

Microsoft Project 98 helps people manage big projects that involve lots of people and resources. For example, a leader coordinating the development of a new jet engine or the building of a skyscraper can use Project to track progress and make sure milestones are met. Author Lisa A. Bucki helps managers keep their focus on their projects and away from the details of their software. In this book she documents the program thoroughly, explaining how to perform scores of key tasks with a minimum of to-do.

Bucki begins by explaining how to set up a project, identifying tasks and milestones and then describing how to revise defined project components as real life exerts its influence. She then pays special attention to monitoring the resources--monetary and otherwise--that make a project go. "Task slack" and the "critical path" come next (the author defines both, in addition to explaining how to use Project 98 to work with them). You'll get the goods on how information from Project translates to actual decisions and instructions. Later sections of this book address making things look good, on paper and otherwise. The reader gets the scoop on various views, reports, printing, and outlining. Finally, Bucki gets into integrating Project with other (generally Microsoft) applications and sharing database information via open database connectivity. You'll find a brief section on publishing Project information to an intranet, an extranet, or the Internet. Macros and other advanced features conclude the documentation. --David Wall
