What admin pro reference books and web sites can you recommend?

by on
in Admin Pro Forum

Question: “Does anyone have administrative professional books or web sites they can recommend?  I'm always looking to add to my personal "library of information." The recommended reference books that I’ve been using are: “How to Say It,” “How to Say It at Work,” and “Katharine Gibbs Handbook of Business English.”  — Lisa Stich

I most frequently use and share my Franklin Covey Style Guide. It’s well organized, easy to read and (believe it or not) pretty interesting. My back-up is the IAAP’s Complete Office Handbook (see the first post in this thread); it’s dull and tedious in its presentation but still good information.

Try http://www.theffectiveadmin.com They have a wonderful newsletter for about $21 per year as well as many different tip sheets that you can order for about $5 each (they are available for instant download) or you can subscribe and get everything for about $199 per year. Also you can try http://www.asap.org. It is free and has many free webinars to watch. Another great site is http://www.naesaa.com. They also offer an inexpensive monthly admin newsletter. For books go to amazon.com and type in administrative assistant books. They list many wonderful books for admins. I order all of my books from amazon. Also as mentioned above http://www.officedynamics.com rocks! Joan Burge has 2 must read books as well as a great webinar series that will go on for the next 26 weeks. Good luck!

I got tired of trying to find answers to all my different questions on websites where there are no standards.

The Gregg Reference Manual is the best resource I have ever used. I refer to it all the time.

The Gregg Reference Manual by William A. Sabin has been an invaluable resource for me.

I highly recommend, if you are not already a member, that you go to http://www.iaap-hq.org/ This is the website for the International Association of Administrative Professionals. They have a lot of resources and membership is very worthwhile! If you are a member and haven’t attended a meeting in a long time now is the time to start going again. If you don’t like the way things are run, join a committee and make the changes. I joined and am now a Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) just one of the certifications that they offer and once you get your certification you are eligible for a pay increase.
