Project is a great scheduling tool, and like many software products has tons of bells and whistles to help you do your job. If you're new to Project, what you really want is to learn the key features to get your project up and running as fast as you can.

I'll take you on a laser focused tour of Project that you can finish over your lunch hour. YOu'll get a chance to practice what you learn with the exercises at the end of almost every movie. With these techniques under your belt, you'll be able to get up to speed with Project quickly and manage your current project. Hi, I'm Bonnie Biafore.
