  • Ger Doyle Ireland I think the course is fantastic for anyone who wants to improve and speed up using Word 2010 the only fault I have with it is in the Assessments, a lot of the questions use words and phrases not used or mentioned in the teaching of the course and this could be very off putting to someone just starting to use Word. 2015-01-14 14:01:40
