Certification on MOS 2003 or MCAS Office 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I started MOS 2003 in August 2009 as home study but could not find a local exam centre.  Since then I have upgraded my OS from Vista to Windows 7 & have considered installing Office 2007 or even 2010 when that is available.  I've used Office 2003 regularly over the last few years but have never used Office 2007.

    I'm currently not working due to disability but am looking to return to work at some point hopefully by the end of this year.  In the meantime, I am trying to study to gain qualifications to improve my chances of employment. 

    I have now found a local exam centre.  The trouble is I don't know whether I should stick with MOS 2003 as I am familiar with that version of Office or should I start again with 2007, upgrading my Office package and buying new study material.  I appreciate MCAS will be harder to do as I've not used 2007 either at home or in the workplace.

    I would be very grateful for any advice.

    Thank you

  • As others here will tell you, it's always best to learn the latest technology.  Office 2003 is seven years old, and Office 2010 is due out in June (or earlier).  Most companies have gone to Office 2007.  If any place is still using Office 2003, check for dinosaurs....

  • I agree with Charles. Office 2007 is way to go at least for now. It's not only newer, but also saves time if you know it well.

    Hope this is helpful.
