Which Book Do You Need?

The best books to start with are the generic beginner titles, so Excel for Beginners, Word for Beginners, PowerPoint for Beginners, or Access for Beginners. Or Microsoft Office for Beginners which covers Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.

Each one was written using Office 2013, but written to apply to any version of Office. At the beginner level there’s not a lot of difference in working with any of the versions of Office from 2007 onward. And if you have an earlier version than that, the Ctrl shortcuts and what things are called will be the same, you’ll just be dealing with a different layout.

Each of the beginner titles also has an Office 2019 equivalent, so, for example, Excel 2019 Beginner. These were written for Office 2019 and assume you don’t need to worry about backwards compatibility with other users who have older versions of Office.

From there each series has an intermediate-level title that is meant to continue and build on what was taught in the beginner-level title. For Excel there are also books on Excel formulas and functions.

If you want everything, each series has a collection of all of the titles in the series. For example, Excel Essentials or Excel Essentials 2019.

For Word and Excel there are also the Easy Word and Easy Excel series of titles that just focus on one specific sub-topic such as Tables or Charts. If you just want to master one or two topics they are a good choice, but usually you’ll be better off just buying the book that material came from.

And, finally, for Excel there are also quiz books meant to test your knowledge of the material. For the original Excel Essentials series there is a quiz book for each title. For the Excel 2019 series you can use the Excel Essentials quiz books to test your knowledge but there is also a study guide specific to the formulas and functions guide for 2019 since Excel 2019 Formulas and Functions covered functions that were new in Excel 2019.
