I read somewhere that the average Microsoft Office user uses less than 10% of the features available to them in the software. If that’s true, then Office is a treasure trove of shortcuts, tools and features just waiting to be unleashed. Of course, we don’t know what we don’t know – which is why most people never invest in training to learn these features and tools and make shorter work of various projects.  To quote an old axiom, “We’re too busy chopping trees to stop and sharpen the axe.”

Of course, not all training is created equal and you DO want to make sure you are getting the biggest bang for your buck; so the first thing you need to determine is, which software applications do you use the most? Word? Excel? Publisher? Next, you need to determine your learning style. Are you good at self-study or do you prefer to have someone walking you through the lessons?

There are many self-study and online courses to choose from, and the one we like is www.trainsignal.com.
