    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a 4 week course that only covers Microsoft Office 2013. You don't need the program in order to complete the course, nor is it provided to you. You do not have to purchase the book; many of the chapters are offered in PDF format that everyone has access to. Despite that convenience, you will have to purchase an access code to use SIMNet. That is around $120.00, a little less expensive than the book itself, which includes the access. The class is a required prerequisite for the degree program I'm working towards; otherwise I would not recommend or have taken this class. Professor Earley is a E-Campus professor. She is kind and helpful. Writes back in a timely manner if you email or post in the discussion forum,

    Course highlights:

    You won't learn anything about computers. Each week covers a different section of Office: Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint. I have been using Microsoft Office Suite throughout middle school, high school, and my first attempt at college in 2001. I would rate my experience with the program at a little less than Expert level. Considering that, I learned a few shortcuts that I wouldn't have otherwise known. But if push came to shove and I needed to know how to apply any of these features, a Google search would suffice.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it if it is a prereq. Don't expect to learn the in's and outs of what is inside a computer or laptop or the components or how they work. Introduction to Computers is a misnomer; They should have titled it Microsoft Office Review

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend the course: Introduction to computers. Technology has developed greatly in this past years. The demands for convenience and fast paced environment has definateley achieved the desired results. Everything you want to have or accomplish is at your finger tips. This course is very important because it will help you to have an understanding on how a computer operates and will be of great assistance in today's demands. Everywhere we go, everything is operated by computers and if we don't work hard to obtain the basic knowledge of computers by taking this course we will not move forward.

    Course highlights:

    All the hands on training that we received, actually open a broad understanding on the world of computers. I was able to develop a good speed on words per minute, which now with my present job I have been able to utilize this knowledge and it has been very helpful in fitting in on today's higher demands within the technology.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for students is to actually enroll in this course because it will be of great help in achieving a higher knowledge on the world of computers. Even if you think you know it all about computers, you should definitely take this course as a way of expanding your knowledge and sharpen your skills.
