Software training is the key to becoming more efficient and effective at work. Many people who use Microsoft programs such as Excel and PowerPoint are unaware of the extensive capabilities of such programs'. This course emphasizes effective presentation of statistical reports using Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint 2007.
