Microsoft Word Beginner

Microsoft Word is a word processing and publishing application used all over the world. It is pretty easy to create a simple document in MS Word. However, to create a complex document with stable and professional formatting, one must have a good grip on powerful features of this application. These features are extremely useful in creating complex documents like Employee Handbooks, Training Manuals, Contracts, Proposals, Project Reports, Periodic Reviews, Newsletters and Legal Documents. Additionally, you achieve enormous efficiency and accuracy in document creation with proper use of MS Word.

Creating a document without planning and systematic approach is a bad idea. This beginner course teaches how to start creating a professionally formatted document using many Word features.
