Let me begin by stating that these links are learning links. You will need to have an edition of Microsoft Office installed on your personal or business computer prior to training yourself.
Visually, Office changed from 2003 to 2007. In 2007, the Ribbon was introduced. Gone are the old-fashioned toolbars of the past. Add that each subsequent edition since Office’s beginnings has added features and graphic appearance, and we have a rather complex set of applications.
Let’s get you some links to get started …
If you feel that you are the book sort …
I highly recommend any book by Shelly Cashman. Example: Microsoft Office 2007
You can find many of these books used on eBay too. At the time that I looked on Amazon, a used edition was available for fourteen dollars.
Lastly, I like the Teach Yourself Visually series of books. Example: Microsoft Office 2007
You may want a more complex approach or set of instructions. The Step by Step series are wonderful instructors too. Example: Microsoft Office Excel 2007 Of course, these are often more advanced topics. Visual Basic is the language used to write code in Office.
Learning to use these applications will only improve your confidence and become an asset to you at work. I highly encourage you to take the time. Computer skills, and particularly spreadsheet and document processing, are a must for most positions. Knowledge of these applications is quickly becoming a basic entry-level expectation. Most positions will advertise that email client, such as Outlook, and web browser, such as Internet Explorer, knowledge is a must to even be considered for hiring.
