Advice for help on moving from MS Office Pro 2000 to 2010?

I decided to finally take the plunge and upgrade to MS Office Pro 2010 after using the 2000 version for ages. I've never even seen any of the versions post 2000.
The ribbon thingy freaks me out based on all the comments I've read over the years about how unintuitive it is. I've been looking at books on amazon, but it seems that none really fits my needs well because I've skipped so many versions (2003, 2007, IIRC). The books seem to be mostly aimed at people who have never used Office and are just starting out (how to enter text, copy, paste, etc.) with the 2010 version or people who already are accustomed to the ribbon in 2007, and who want to know the differences between 2007 and 2010 versions.
I'd appreciate any info you folks can provide regarding resources that will help me migrate from the 2000 version to the 2010 version.
Any type of resource is welcome. Having said that, I'm learning this on my own, so expensive training classes are not an option because I can't afford that sort of thing.
I guess the biggest thing is I'm trying to avoid buying a bunch of intro books for all the apps in the 2010 version and then have to go back and buy a whole other set of more advanced books for those very same apps.
Many thanks in advance!
