You’ll then move on to the SpeedWriting course, which is a great way to learn how to take down minutes and notes quickly and precisely at speeds of over 40 words per minute.
Finally, you can choose Microsoft Word or Microsoft Word Expert (depending upon your current level of experience), which will ensure you’ll be confident in this most important and popular word processing software.
