The new version of Office for Mac is Microsoft’s most collaborative, compatible, and easy-to-use version for Mac to date--bringing the Mac version on an even level with Office 2010 for the PC while remaining truly Mac-like. Using Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac explains the tasks you need to perform if you must switch between platforms, as well as the rich, new features in this version if you are upgrading from an older Mac version. Using Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac is broken into five sections--one section for each of the four applications and a fifth section on Document Connection that teaches you how to use the collaboration features of Office via SharePoint or SkyDrive. For Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, each section includes an introductory chapter to get you comfortable with the basics and subsequent chapters that teach you how to enhance your work and use productivity tools. Additionally, online audio and video instruction enhance the book by explaining additional topics and demonstrating real-world tasks.
