Product Description

Whether your job is to manage the construction of a building, oversee the launch of a new product, host an international event, or plan a company party, Microsoft Project 2003 can help. Microsoft Project 2003 For Dummies shows you how to use the program to plan, schedule, and budget all phases of a project, assign the resources, create essential reports, and monitor your progress. If you’re new to Project, you’ll find what you need to get up to speed, including info on how Project works, finding your way around, and building your first Project plan. If you’ve used an earlier version of Project, you’ll delve into Project 2003 and all of the new features it puts at your fingertips. Complete with case histories, screen shots, and step-by-step instructions, this guide walks you through:

  • Making calendar settings, building a task-outline, and entering timing and timing relationships for tasks
  • Assigning resources and material costs to tasks
  • Using scheduling and tracking tools: The Gantt Chart which is the main view of Project; The Network Diagram (version of a PERT (program Evaluation and Review Technique) chart; Risk management; and Resource management
  • Recalculating based on what-if scenarios to solve resource conflicts, get your costs within budget, or meet your deadlines
  • Understanding the task/subtask structure, creating an outline, and working with WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) codes
  • Working with a combination of cost types (fixed, work, and material) and customizing costs fields with Value Lists
  • Saving your plan with a baseline
  • Using the tracking toolbar and to record actual activity, update fixed costs, and more
  • Generating and formatting standard reports (complete with graphics), creating custom reports, and using the XML Reporting Wizard

If you have Project Server (that complements Project 2003 but is not included), this book shows you how to use Project in an enterprise environment to centralize information online and get real online collaboration. You can publish projects to the Web, allow team members to update their progress, analyze your project status, and generally communicate in one central, online location.

Microsoft Project 2003 For Dummies is complete with a bonus CD-ROM that includes:

  • Add-on tools and templates
  • Case history examples
  • Test preparation questions for the Project Management Institute (PMI) certification exam
  • Milestones Project Companion and Project KickStart trial versions

The books came with a demo CD that required a 16-digit key to operate. They were unable to it for either of the two books and ended up refunding the entire amount including shipping. That was the right thing to do but I needed the book and the information on the CDs for a consulting effort. Hence, I was overall not satisfied.

too simple to be useful
Reviewed in the United States on February 21, 2009
I did not like the book because it is assumed that you are dummy even after you finish the book! It does not have enough material and comparatively not a good book. I also bought MSP Step-by-Step and it was much better.
