Video: introduction

Visio 2003 Essential Training with David Rivers is a movie-based tutorial designed to help new and existing Visio users obtain a basic to intermediate understanding of this latest version of Microsoft Visio. This tutorial will show you how to create a wide variety of powerful diagrams - from simple calendars and timelines to intricate organization charts, maps and network diagrams. The training begins with a basic overview of the newly designed Visio interface and quickly advances to cover such topics as stencils, shapes, connectors, snap and glue, layers and a whole host of drawing tools and drawing types. Exercise files accompany the training, allowing you to follow along and learn at your own pace.
