Perhaps you have had training in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel or some other program but you didn’t use those features for quite a while. You say to yourself, “now, how do I set a tab in Word”? How do I merge 4 cells in Excel? You can order a reference chart that consists of 4 color laminated pages (2 page front & back). The cost is $4.15 each. They decrease in price if you purchase them in greater numbers. The shipping is free! Go to their website http://www.softwarecharts.com/ or call 1-888-877-7319. You can have them customize a software chart as well, for an added cost. If they don’t have a chart for the software you use, give them a call and they will create one for you. Just tell them Emory sent you. The pages include step by step directions on the important program features that also include screen shots, tips, definitions and keyboard shortcuts. I especially like the charts for the Microsoft programs because the in program help menus tend to be less helpful.
The software charts they currently have include: Microsoft Word (2000, 2002, 2003 & 2007), Excel (2000, 2002, 2003 & 2007), PowerPoint (2000, 2002, 2003 & 2007), Access (2000, 2002, 2003 & 2007), Outlook (2000, 2002, 2003 & 2007), Digital Camera Basics, GroupWise (6, 6.5, & 7), Internet Basics, Lotus Notes (R5, R6, & 7), Lotus iNotes, Palm OS 3.4 to 4, Quattro Pro 12, Windows Vista, Windows XP Pro, Windows 2000 and Word Perfect 12.
I don’t know about you, but I am a visual learner. I like having a manual or a reference chart like this when I am learning how to use a program. If you go online you can also ask for a sample, which consist of 3 charts of your choice. The charts are cheap and well worth the money. I just wanted you to know that they were out there in case you have a need for them.
