About This Class

In this class, we will start with a quick introduction to Microsoft Project 2013.

Following that, I will briefly touch upon 3 editions of MS Project 2013 popularly available in the market.

An important distinction in this course is that - you will learn how to use Microsoft Project - but NOT how to do Project Management itself. I have separate classes for "Simple Software Project Management" if you are interested in that, please join. 

The subsequent lessons are aimed at getting you familiar and comfortable with Microsoft Project's powerful interface. 

The interface is the first stumbling block for many practitioners - but you will learn very quickly how to traverse around it with the lessons in this class.

Specifically, I will show how Basic Interface, Ribbon Interface, Backstage, and finally how you can even Customize the Toolbar - to your own preferences. 

This class is just a precursor to the "MASTERCLASS" course to follow.
