This is an excellent guide that beat the Dummies series to the punch. Indeed, the Dummies series released all sorts of guides on Google, Google Apps, etc... but, none focused on Google Docs.
There have been a few changes. For instance, within the doc program. The guide mentioned you could save a document as a copy (pg 35); Now, instead you make a copy. Additionally, the document styles are in a completely different area. They were under Edit (pg. 45). It is now located under Format, and it is called Document Settings. After clicking on those menu items, you finally get a Document Styles box that looks the same as in the book. Also, print settings (pg. 41) are a lot more limited than all the choices shown in the guide.
Besides those inevitable discrepancies due to the passage of time, the book is excellent. It does a very good job at explaining the detailed workings of each three programs (doc, spreadsheet, presentation) and how to share those documents with others.
Google docs is quite revolutionary and is becoming an increasingly relevant competitor to the PC based MicroSoft Office suite. Apparently, numerous corporations have adopted Google docs. I write all my book reviews using docs as I prefer it to Word where I am tired of fighting distracting automated features. Anyone using the internet should give Google docs a try. And, this guide facilitates such efforts.
