EASTWOOD HARRIS BOOKS

WHY BUY EASTWOOD HARRIS BOOKS

All scheduling software is difficult to learn because they often do not have the optimal settings when installed straight out of the box. I find that templates, layouts, views and default options often need to be adjusted to obtain the best possible performance.

Usually the Help files do not connect the user to real life situations and do not explain the practical use of many functions. Furthermore, there are many flicks and switches with obscure names, and it is difficult to understand what they do and which are important and which are not.

These issues make learning the software very difficult without a comprehensive guide written by an experience person. Investing in a book written by Paul E Harris will address all these issues and allow you to setup the software properly and understand all the obscure function letting you to become productive more quickly and enhance you career opportunities and salary with a solid understanding of the software.
