Word 2013 Exam Prep - Expert Course Outline

 (1 day)
Version 2013

*** This Class is for Experienced Excel Users Seeking Word Expert Certification ***
This live, instructor-led course is delivered by having the class complete a series of practice exams which mirror the format that you will see when taking the actual exams. In addition, exam preparation techniques will be reviewed.

Instructor-Guided Exam Review
The concepts covered in the exams will not be "taught" in this class. This class focuses on what to expect during the real exams and strategies to prepare you for the exams.

GMetrix Exam Prep Software
Participants will work through a series of exam simulations using Word and exam prep software by GMetrix, the industry's leading provider of Microsoft Office Specialist exams. (After the class, you will have continued access to the test prep software.)

MOS 2013 Study Guide
In addition, you will receive a copy of the best selling paperback, the "MOS 2013 Study Guide for Microsoft Word Expert" that will help you review any areas where you feel you need additional study after the class.

This course is for individuals who have taken all 3 levels of our Microsoft Word training or who have significant work experience with Word spanning all topics required for certification. While a limited number of Word concepts will be reviewed, the course will focus on preparation and studying techniques as well as how to use the GMetrix Exam Prep software.
