[easyazon_link asin=”0735666997″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” tag=”spbk-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” nofollow=”default” popups=”default”]Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Inside Out[/easyazon_link] is the SharePoint book for the end-user that wants to become a power-user. It covers a ton of topics and it covers them in-depth.
This book is pretty thick and covers anything you would need to know about Sharepoint. It contains a lot of solutions so you can save time which is nice especially if you only know the basics of Sharepoint. The book has a lot of screenshots and if coming from a previous version of SharePoint,  you will be informed of the changes to the newer version.

The book is not intended for SharePoint developers or SharePoint administrators, although most SharePoint developers and administrators are (or should be)also power users. So the book will come in handy when you’re simply using SharePoint as an end-user.

The book is split into 23 chapters covering everything from basics of SharePoint structure and terms to setting up BDC connections, excel services and more. Depending on your IT department and your level of access in SharePoint, this book covers virtually everything you will need to know to create useful and powerful SharePoint sites.

Exercises walk the user through each component in a straightforward manner; sample files can be downloaded for the hands-on segments, a value-add in any case where the text is unclear. This is a learn-by-example text, where even the literal text fields are scripted, e.g., “in the name box, type ‘FurniturePrice'”. Users who are computer-challenged may appreciate this approach, and it certainly imparts the required techniques to achieve a stated goal. Advanced users would probably find the sidebars and detailed instructions distracting.
