Word 2008 for Mac Essential Training

with David Rivers

Video: Welcome

Hi and welcome to Microsoft 2008 for the Mac. Word on the Mac like you've never seen it before. In this title we'll explore most of the basic to intermediate concepts of Microsoft Office Word 2008 for the Mac, which I shall refer to as Word from here on in just because it's a mouthful and ah, I'm a little bit lazy. Word, as I'm sure you know by now, is the world's leading word processing application. It can be used to work on a wide variety of documents, from simple letters and memos to very complex documents and publications like newsletters, brochures, manuals and forms.
