Mastering Microsoft Office

Today, Community Business College had a record-setting day. One person was able to complete her Microsoft Office Masters certification by completing all four required tests in three days.

Test Strategy
Here’s what she did to strategize:
First pick the Microsoft Master certification you want.  Recently, Microsoft changed the system to include two different tracks that include two expert exams for Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel.

Here are the Microsoft Office master certifications from which to choose:
       Exams required:
              Word 2013 Expert Part 1
              Word 2013 Expert Part 2
              Excel 2013
       Elective exams (choose one):
              PowerPoint 2013 or Access 2013, Outlook 2013, or SharePoint 2013, or
              OneNote 2013

       Exams required:
              Excel 2013 Expert Part 1
              Excel 2013 Expert Part 2
              Word 2013
       Elective exams (choose one):
              PowerPoint 2013, or Access 2013, or Outlook 2013, SharePoint 2013, or
              OneNote 2013

Traditional Office 2013 Track
       Exams required:
              Word 2013 Expert Part 1
              Word 2013 Expert Part 2
              Excel 2013 Expert Part 1
              Excel 2013 Expert Part 2
       Exams required:
              Word 2010 Expert
              Excel 2010 Expert
              PowerPoint 2010
       Elective exams (choose one):
              Microsoft SharePoint 2010

In her case, she wanted the Microsoft Word 2013 Track because she uses Microsoft Word heavily at her work site. So that’s the one she picked.
The next strategy is to figure out where you strengths are. When taking the Microsoft Office exams, it helps to start off with a program you are very familiar with. That way you get quick passing grade and build momentum.

Here’s the way she did it: She did these two exams on one day:
Then this exam the following day:
And then finally this exam today:

PowerPoint can be a difficult test because a lot of people take it for granted. If you use a lot of its features though, or study up on the ones you’re not that familiar, it’s not too hard.
The recent change in the Microsoft Expert certification means that the Microsoft Word Expert exam is now split up into two 50-minute exams. It means you have to be familiar with a wider range of Microsoft Word functions in order to pass it.


Why Go To All That Trouble?
The Microsoft Office Master Certification demonstrates the highest level of proficiently when using Office programs. Many employers will use it as continuing education units or to meet certain job requirements. It certainly helps when you’re going in for an annual employee evaluation meeting.

Certification is Important
The need for Microsoft Office skills is increasing dramatically as more and more businesses are embracing newer technologies. Microsoft Office Specialist certification enables Office users to demonstrate their abilities to complete tasks and projects with greater ease and efficiency with proven Office skills. Based on globally recognized standards, MOS certification validates your skills, builds self-confidence and enhances professional standing among peers and managers.

Lifelong Learning
Getting certified through Microsoft also provides a good deal of personal satisfaction. Adults always need to practice lifelong learning and this is one way to do it. The new Microsoft Office Specialist certification validates the skills needed to use the powerful features and functionality of the Microsoft Office programs by passing a results-oriented computerized exam. Those who successfully complete a Microsoft Office Specialist exam have demonstrated the skills necessary to work faster and smarter while improving performance.

Bottom line – you get out of Microsoft Office only what you put into it. The more you know, the more you can do.

As you study and prepare for the Microsoft Office Master certification, you’ll find you learn a lot more about these programs than you’ve been using. Hopefully, you’ll be able to put what you’ve learned to good use in more efficient and time-saving work.

One of the nifty changes the testing system has made is they now offer certification verification. It’s sure easy for unscrupulous people who want to forge their own certifications to run off their own on a good color printer.  Microsoft Office certifications now offers this website : www.verifycertiport.com  where anyone can enter a code that appears on all official certifications

Although lots of hassle is created within the celestial satellite stage program, the cartier replica sale can also be an excellent task within horology. Tourbillons basically negate the results associated with the law of gravity about the escapement from the view through revolving upon by itself as soon as each and every moment. This particular problem is actually broadly thought to be probably the most unique system within watchmaking.
