Apple Works 6 for Dummies,
by Bob Levitus, Dennis Cohen

Book Description :

Now bundled with the hot new iBook as well as with the popular iMac, AppleWorks is becoming a staple of Mac households and businesses worldwide. Well-known for his ability to translate technical jargon into usable advice, Bob LeVitus shows Mac lovers how to take full advantage of all the components in the suite, including word processing, spreadsheet, database, graphics, and presentation software.


Macs are fun--they even smile--but, before long, you'll find yourself merrily mousing away on your Mac when the dark strains of required productivity become audible. What to do? AppleWorks most likely includes the bit of software you need to get your work done, and AppleWorks 6 for Dummies can show you how to use that suite of applications in no time at all. Before you know it, you'll be back to listening to MP3s while you surf the Internet.

In this book, a couple of Mac experts (including Mac demigod Bob LeVitus) explain how to use the productivity applications that make up AppleWorks, getting straight to the point without sounding dry or dull. Whether you're interested in using the index to locate the authors' coverage of how to group objects in AppleWorks' paint program, or in following along as they reveal the intricacies of spreadsheet design, you'll be pleased by what you find here. The authors have written lots of easy-to-follow procedures, which include information on what you should do and what you should see as a result, and sprinkled their chapters with solid tips. These tips explain how to create image collections, for example, and how to avoid common pitfalls in database design. --David Wall

Topics covered: How to use the applications in AppleWorks 6, including the word processor, spreadsheet, database, graphics tools, and Internet applications. Adequate attention goes to the programs' extensive integration, as well as to utility operations, such as printing and file management.

AppleWorks 6: The Missing Manual

by Jim Elferdink, David Reynolds


Book Description: 

For Mac and Windows users who prefer an alternative to the cost, bloat, and complexity of Microsoft Office, AppleWorks is the stealth office suite. Hugely popular in classrooms, colleges, and small offices, AppleWorks includes word processing, drafting, painting, database, Web-page creation, spreadsheet, and (in version 6) slide-show functions in a single, beautifully integrated application.

Every year, however, AppleWorks arrives in the hands of four million Apple iMac and iBook buyers. There it sits on the hard drive, a masterpiece of smooth integration and clever interface design, accompanied by hundreds of templates, clip art libraries, and fonts--but without a single page of written documentation.

AppleWorks 6: the Missing Manual treats AppleWorks as the serious productivity tool it is. Authors Jim Elferdink and David Reynolds guide the reader through both the basics and the hidden talents of the new AppleWorks version, placing special emphasis on version 6's enhanced word processing, Internet, and presentation features.

Because the book isn't an official Apple publication, the authors are free to acknowledge the program's weaknesses-and to offer workarounds. And because the book is a Missing Manual title, it's rich with examples and step-by-step tutorials. For the spreadsheet and database user, the book includes Appendixes that cover the built-in calculation functions, one by one, complete with examples. AppleWorks 6: The Missing Manual, in fact, is as smoothly put together as AppleWorks itself.
