After the beta launch of Microsoft Office 2010, we’ve been covering many of the new features available through a series of articles here on groovyPost. Microsoft has just released a free e-book written by Katherine Murray which covers much of the new content available in Office 2010. The book is 14 chapters and 202 pages in length, so it’s a long read with a lot of technical jargon, but it can be very educational.
According to the Microsoft Press, this free download will only be available for a short time, and then it will become a paid download; after that, you’ll need an MSDN account to get it. First Look Office 2010 covers a broad range of features available in the new 2010 edition of office.
