I just finished going through Mark Polino's "Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Cookbook" and I can say that this is not just another manual that says "click on the obvious menu, then click next...then click next..." (or maybe I should say this is as far from the built in GP help as one can get? ;-) This is a book full of tips that come from the field on how to solve real world problems that are sure to be encountered by Dynamics GP users.
But beware: This book is not a complete 1,2,3 on how to use or implement GP. (and not meant to be) Rather it is immediately useable tidbits that address common issues that can and will come up when using Dynamics GP. (just as the subtitle mentions very accurately notes) If you have had the good experience of sitting in any of Mark's "GP 50 Tips" sessions at Microsoft Convergence (he started a whole new genre of Convergence training session that has been spreading like wildfire ;-) you will know exactly the format of this book: fast tips that provide immediate solutions to real world problems.
I would guess that even the most savvy GP user will take away at least 5 very valuable tips from the GP Cookbook that will make the part of your life spent inside GP easier and more productive. (For most of us it will be a lot more. ;-)
There is one thing I can't figure out about this book: What is the picture on the cover?
You can get the book here:
PS-I co-authored a book by Packt publishing just last year and realize we had the same project team leader, Priya. Aparently I didn't totally drive her crazy. ;-)
