Go beyond the basics of word processing and master the more advanced features of Microsoft Word 2016 (now available through Office 365).

From signs, newsletters, and greeting cards to long documents, you'll learn how to create whatever you need—quickly and with professional-looking results.
We'll go through tips for automating Word using macros, shortcut keys, and templates so you can create even the most complex formatted documents quickly and easily. You'll also learn how to create and organize text in tables, mix graphics and text together to turn Word into a simple desktop publishing program, and merge spreadsheet and database data to create mailing labels and form letters.
Along the way, we'll go through lots of examples and exercises so you can see how Word's advanced features work; but more importantly, you'll see how you can use these advanced features at home and on the job.
