Question
Hi,

I want to learn Word, Excel and Powerpoint.  There are so many books & web sites out there that it is mind boggling.  I have Word (most recent) installed.  What is your advice on the best way to learn Microsoft office?

Thanks, John

Answer
everyone learns differently, which is partly why there are so many sites out there.  I would suggest that for Word, you simply start using it - as and when you aren't sure how to do something, google it, or look on YouTube for a training video - ideally find a style there that suits and try to use the same channel or presenter to give you answers - and of course, you can come back here with questions - I've done SOME training videos (www.flameenterprises.co.uk talks about what I have done and can do!).  Much the same applies to learning the other programs in the office suite - I'm finding at the moment that if I want help with PowerPoint I ask my 11 year old who is amazingly good at it!!
