Section 1: Introduction

Hello, and welcome to the course.

Section 2: Top Tips

You'll be able to format paragraphs identically with ease, and investigate existing formatting.


We'll investigate how to use styles such as Heading 1 and Heading 2, how they can give you a consistent document, and how to modify your styles.


We'll see about how to use multi-level numbering, and how you can indent and outdent paragraphs. I'll also touch on how they can interact with styles.


We'll see how menus can appear and disappear, based on what you have selected, and see how you can get the functions that you use the most into the Quick Access Toolbar.


We'll have a look at Microsoft's official exams, such as 77-418, and see what things Microsoft wants you to learn, and the advantages of becoming certified.


We'll have a look at how you can learn the information that Microsoft recommend you learn, and which is needed to work towards an official Microsoft certification - and there's a voucher code as a thank you for watching this course.

Section 3: Thank you

Hopefully you can take what you have learned, and put it into practice, saving you time and frustration.
