Properly created, business graphics convey information in a way that is visually appealing."SmartDraw For Dummies" includes an eight-page color insert showing various types of graphics that can be created from the examples in the book. This book is intended for an audience that is familiar with everyday business tasks such as using Microsoft Office products.
