Video: Using the exercise files

To help you follow along on your own computer, I've saved my work for each chapter and video. Whenever an exercise file is available for a video, you'll see a yellow overlay at the bottom of the screen that indicates the location and the name of the exercise file, like this. And if I've worked with other files, such as photos, video, or Excel spreadsheets, I've collected those together for you in a special folder called Assets. Here on my Desktop, I've placed my Exercise Files folder. And inside you'll see I have got one folder for each chapter of the course.

Using the exercise files

To help you follow along on your own computer, I've saved my work for each chapter and video. Whenever an exercise file is available for a video, you'll see a yellow overlay at the bottom of the screen that indicates the location and the name of the exercise file, like this. And if I've worked with other files, such as photos, video, or Excel spreadsheets, I've collected those together for you in a special folder called Assets. Here on my Desktop, I've placed my Exercise Files folder. And inside you'll see I have got one folder for each chapter of the course.

Here's that Assets folder I was mentioning earlier. And you can see all sorts of supplemental files that I use to enhance my presentation: photos, Word documents, and more. Two quick notes. all of the Exercise Files are meant to work with PowerPoint 2010. If you're using a different version, some files may not work properly. And in the interest of making the files a quick download, the video file that we use in Chapter_03 has been saved at a much lower quality. All of these files are available to lynda.com's Premium subscribers and to those who've purchased the DVD.

If you aren't a subscriber or don't have the DVD, don't worry. You'll still be able to enjoy the training. But if you've got the exercise files, I suggest you download them on your computer, place them on your desktop for easy access, and follow along.
