This course trains you how to use the features of Microsoft Excel 2013. Excel 2013 is an incredibly powerful tool for getting meaning out of vast amounts of data. But it also works really well for simple calculations and tracking almost any kind of information. The key for unlocking all that potential is the grid of cells. Cells can contain numbers, text or formulas. You put data in your cells and group them in rows and columns. That allows you to add up your data, sort and filter it, put it in tables, and build great-looking charts.

This course provides training for the features of Microsoft Office’s PowerPoint 2013. PowerPoint 2013 is a visual and graphical application, primarily used for creating presentations. With PowerPoint, you can create, view, and present slide shows that combine text, shapes, pictures, graphs, animation, charts, videos, and much more!

This course trains you how to use the features of Microsoft Outlook 2013. Microsoft Outlook 2013 organizes your emails, calendars, contacts, tasks, and to-do lists, all in one place. It all starts with your email account. From there you can start working with emails, turning them into tasks or appointments, and storing the people you interact with in your contacts, so you never have to remember an email address or phone number.

This course trains you how to use the features of Microsoft Access 2013. Microsoft Access is a tool to manage information that helps you store information for reference, reporting and analysis.
