Jasmine, this is a great share. I would also like to share some great information I recently took advantage of, and that is obtaining Microsoft Office Specialist certification through Certiport. I just passed the Outlook MOS exam today with flying colors and can proudly say that I now hold this certification. I purchased an MOS exam voucher through Certiport (very affordable and under $100). Certifiport then sent me a link to LearnKey.com which provides a pre-assessment test, video & audio training, module labs, and post-assessment testing. When you are ready to take the exam you just need to locate a certified testing center near you and make an appointment to take your exam. There may be a small proctoring fee (my testing center didn't require one!) and you'll need to bring your Certiport exam voucher.
The training program is self-paced and you can move around within the modules as you like. The program keeps a record of all your practice exams, tracks your learning status, and shows you the questions you missed and how to find the correct answers. The training video & audio is absolutely phenomenal! I have attended many full-day training classes at training facilities like New Horizons and others on various software products in the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) but never have I learned so much as I have through this Certiport/Learnkey. I highly recommend this opportunity to anyone who is serious about attaining valuable organizational skills with Microsoft Outlook to consider checking out Certiport and MOS certification.
Hope this message helps and inspires others to try Certiport like I did. I know I sound like a spokesperson for them but I'm not, I promise! I'm just a very satisfied customer/user!
