Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003
REVIEW

Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003

Although it's pricey, Microsoft's PowerPoint 2003 is still the reigning champion of presentation software. You'll get a wealth of customization options, though not when it comes to export formats.

QuickBooks Premier 2006 (Windows)
REVIEW

QuickBooks Premier 2006 ( Windows)

QuickBooks Premier 2006 is the best upgrade in years. Its slick new interface is the best in small-business accounting, and its accounting toolkit is easy to learn. Small but growing businesses should buy it.

Corel WordPerfect Office X3 Standard Edition
REVIEW

Corel WordPerfect Office X3 Standard Edition

Corel WordPerfect Office X3 is a very good productivity suite with enough enhancements to warrant an upgrade. Microsoft Office users, though, should wait for Microsoft Office 12.

REVIEW

TaxCut Premium 2005

H&R Block has a winner with TaxCut Premium 2005, a well-designed tax-prep tool for filers with business, investment, and rental income. Though a tad harder to use than TurboTax, TaxCut is a solid buy for the file-it-yourself crowd.

QuickBooks Simple Start 2005
REVIEW

QuickBooks Simple Start 2005

QuickBooks Simple Start is easy to learn, but the lack of budgeting, payroll, and Excel-import tools limits its usefulness. We recommend a more powerful accounting app, such as QuickBooks.

Quicken Premier 2006
REVIEW

Quicken Premier 2006

Quicken Premier 2006 is a great personal finance program that lacks the killer features to warrant an upgrade from Quicken 2005. Users of Quicken 2004 or earlier versions should make the leap, though.
