PowerPoint 2010 Office Certification (Exam 77-883)

    Question

  • My office is attempting to get our entire Admin staff certified in PowrPoint 2010.  The boss has set a deadline that everyone is to be certified by the end of the year.  However, I don't see any information as to when this exam will become available.

    I have been asked to help coordinate the training, but haven't really found a great training center to work with.  We need material to help us study (an more important, to help us learn).  Does anyone know of a "boot camp" type course available to truly teach the ins and outs of PowerPoint 2010 and also help prepare for the exam?

    I just took the 77-883 Exam, and I passed the exam in 35 minutes. This exam was definitely a challenge since I am still using the 2003 version.  However, it was MUCH easier than the Word 77-881 Exam.  I prepared for about 6 weeks, using the following materials:

    1.  Lynda.com (Online training)
    2.  Microsfot Powerpoint 2010 - the Shelly Cashman Series (Comprehensive Edition)
    3.  Microsoft Office Specialist 2010 by Laura Story
    4.  Microsoft Office Specialist Exam Reference for 2010
    5.  Certiport's Powerpoint 2010 Practice Exam

    There were 40 questions on the 77-883 Exam and you had 50 minutes to complete the exam.  Good luck to anyone taking this exam.

  • Hi Kathleen,

    Well boss has set a deadline that is feasable. When you look at the examschedule for MOS 2010 PowerPoint here:

    http://www.certiport.com/Portal/desktopdefault.aspx?page=common/pagelibrary/mos2010.html

    you'll see that it's actually scheduled for this month (subject to change though...). So send mail to certiport asking them if it's already available.

    For prep. materials the step by step books are always the core materials to study:

    http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780735626911/

    or look it up on amazon.com

    Starting with this step by step book is very good and after that it's hands on! Find out everything there is to know about the new features and be sure to know your way around the ribbon.

    Good luck and let us know if the team passed the exam.
