    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    As a very tech savvy computer user, I was skeptical that I would gain any knowledge from this course. I saw it as just a prerequisite I needed to complete that would bore me for 5 weeks. However, the intricacies of Microsoft Office that you delve into in this course really help you unlock the potential of the office suite.

    Course highlights:

    I believe my highlights were the modules on Excel and Access. I have always wanted to understand the higher functions of these programs, and not just use them as a fancy calculator and address book. Learning how to manipulate each of these programs properly were the best parts of this course for me. I regularly refer to my text and assignments for tips that I apply to my work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Whether or not you think you need a course in Microsoft Office, I would suggest you take it. Particularly if you are self taught, such as I am. The little foundational knowledge morsels enhance your already advanced skills and lend a higher level of understanding about what is actually possible with this powerful office suite.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I found Introductions to Computer Applications to be an extremely helpful course whether it is for personal or professional use.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned how to fine tooth comb functions within Microsoft Excel and Powerpoint that has helped me create better spreadsheets and presentations. The highlight of this course for was learning the do's and dont's of creating an effective presentation. This section of the course has helped me with a presentation I was working on for my employer the next day. This specific presentation went very well and I must say that it has been my best on thus far.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pace yourself. Review the weekly syllabus and see what learning tasks and or assignments take longer and focus on those last. For team assignments, check in daily for team posts/assignments and tackle those first as others are depending on your input.
