just my opinion, but i do not like MS project. had the chance to use it for an IS project last semester, and it frustrated me to the point that i gave up and drew out my PERT diagram, and did the calculations, by hand.
not to say that it's totally horrible...but if you're going to use it, i would suggest having a pretty firm grip on whatever you're planning to use it for, beforehand. the software has a project startup wizard, which is nice...so long as you don't want or need to go back and make any changes. like if you want your time scale to be in days instead of hours. it also doesn't like it if you plan on working weekends and will come up with annoying error messages (it's not a workday, blah blah blah). also, i didn't like the aesthetics of the diagrams it generated.
but maybe other aspects of the software are better...i had pretty limited exposure to it, and that may have been the worst part of it. give it a try before you buy, if you can.
