The book provides an introduction to Works 2000 for new users, with the assumption that the new Works user probably has little prior experience of computers. It starts with the basics of screen control and file management, then looks at each of the main components in turn. The focus is on what is being processed - text, numbers, etc - rather than the application being used, as the same techniques recur in different applications.

Reviews for Works 2000 Made Simple
What the 21st century really needs is a brand new buzzword, and the folk at Butterworth-Heinemann have created the prefect one. Their 'Made Simple' range sounds as if it could knock the socks off any 'Made Easy' title. This book, as you'd expect, has the ultimate goal of explaining everything Works 2000 has to offer, and how to put it to good use. The first thing you'll notice about the design of this book when you turn the cover is that it's printed using a fairly large font, with equally large spacing. Obviously, Works 2000 Made Simple is really only for those who already own, or are about to buy Microsoft Works 2000. If you fall in to one of these two categories you may well find it to be a hoghly useful companion. PC Home - March 2001
