Low cost interactive training for 2010 Microsoft Office - Advice RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking to gain certification and know that I learn best with interactive training - where you are applying the skills. Any advice on where to go online for this? I only have 2003 on personal computer but am using 2010 in the workplace so I do not have much option of playing around on 2010 -

     

    Thank you for any help!!!

  • The exams for 2003 will be different than 2010 so you need to decide what ones you want to do.  The following link provides a list of the various exams http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/mos.aspx#certifications

    Once you've decided, just do a search for Hands on Labs or Tutorials

  • Hi,

    As Jeff stated 2010 looks entirely different than 2003. You might expect that an 2010 exam is going to be about the new UI. If you don't have 2010 you could always download a trial: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try

    When doing a search for tutorials you'll find excellent materials but they do tend to be specific to a certain area. I don't know what your budget is but you can take a look here where you will find some online training at a fair price: http://learning.microsoft.com/manager/default.aspx?brand=learning

    Maybe you have to sign in first. Click on the Training Catalog button

    - Under search catalog choose 'online traing' and Access 2010

    The courses you are looking for are:

    - Course 10382; 10383; 10395

    Or you could go for the collections that way you get it all in one buy.

    Most important is that you play around with Access 2010 enough to feel comfortable to take the exam.

    Good luck!

  • Hi,

    If you are looking for interactive hands-on training with a live instructor, you can try some of the companies that offer live, online training like www.skillforge.com or Webucator. SkillForge has training in Access at http://skillforge.com/courses/category/microsoft/microsoft-access-training

  • If it’s Microsoft Office courses you’re looking for, then Career Step has a great program. It covers training in the five most important MS applications – Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Access and Outlook in one bundle program. That should pretty much cover everything you need to know for basic to advanced office work. Do browse through the program details on the website.
