MS Word 2010

Microsoft Word 2010 is the newest update to their popular word processing software. Looking a lot like their 2007 version, Word 2010 continues utilizing the ribbon to make accessing features and toolbars a lot quicker and easier than before. When you factor in all the writing, formatting, editing, and even publishing tools that this newest version offers, Microsoft 2010 becomes one of the best versions yet.

Even if you've never used Microsoft Word before, learning to use Word 2010 will be a breeze. This section takes its time in introducing you to the layout, providing you step-by-step instructions on how to benefit from the most commonly used features. If you're already familiar with previous versions of Word, this course will give you a tour of 2010 and go into some advanced aspects to improve your skill level and make you an expert with this program.

MS Excel 2010

Most computer-savvy people out there today know that MS Excel 2010 is a spreadsheet program that you can use to record data, create charts, and utilize mathematical equations. However, most people who are familiar with Excel aren't fully aware of all that MS Excel can do. Maybe that's you. You'd be surprised about the things that you can do using Excel that you're currently doing by hand or using other inappropriate software (such as the familiar sibling to Excel, MS Word). But that's okay. That's why we designed this course.

But first, let's dispel the myths that MS Excel 2010 is complicated to use, or to use its mathematical functions and capabilities that you must be good at math, or worse yet, that you must know some complicated programing in order to make it work for you. The truth is, most people like you that use MS Excel use it for a single defined reason. Because there are so many options and features available within the software, most people feel overwhelmed and don't take the time to explore just how many other things they can actually use it for.

With Excel 2010, you can:

Organize, sort, and record data.
Enter in text and mathematical equations.
Keep, track, chart, graph, and compare statistics.
Maintain records.
Create mathematical equations and functions to accurately keep records and statistics whenever data changes.
You can even use Excel to balance your checkbook, calculate the dollar amount you're spending on interest rates for credit cards and mortgages, as well as track your corporate spending accounts! You can also turn around and use Excel for something as simple as listing who is bringing what to the next family reunion. MS Excel can be used for the most complex or simplest of tasks…and all these tasks can be done quite easily when you know how to use Excel 2010.

MS PowerPoint 2010

PowerPoint 2010 adds easy-to-use interactive features that make the usual slides of boring bulleted text and charts a relic of the past. Making up for a tedious PowerPoint presentation by being an exceptional speaker is no longer required.

PowerPoint is one of Microsoft's best programs, and improving upon previous versions, PowerPoint 2010 is now a lot more fun to use. You will be amazed at how easy it will be to familiarize yourself with the various aspects of this program.

With this course, you will learn:

- and much more
