Microsoft Office 2003 was the last edition of Office to use the old-style “Menu and Button Bar” interface, and many companies have been slow to upgrade from there. Now it’s time: full support for Office 2003 ended in 2009, and more and more users are switching to Office 2010. Are you one of them?

Fortunately, if you were comfortable with the old Office, the new version is not as different as it looks. This one day course boils down the reasons for and the benefits of the new Ribbon interface, and will get you back up to speed on Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook—and point you in the direction of the new efficiencies that are possible with the new set-up.
