    "In order to make a powerpoint presentation interesting you need to present short and puntual information. You need to add content to the presentation only if it amplifies and extends the main point of your presentation."

    "I have never been good at powerpoint. I had to give a presentation at work a few weeks ago. I was doing some research when I came across this video. I had no idea that you could do all of this with powerpoint. I am not very eager to watch more of these videos so that I can learn to give better powerpoint presentation."

    "If you're a college student or just someone who likes listening to people talk in lecture forms then TED Talks is for you but learning how to design slides is something all presentation presenters have been trying to learn and using the program that is listed here will help you step by step to learn how make designs that appeal to people and make things that are very eye catching."

    "Somehow I missed the part of school where everyone learned how to use PowerPoint. So when my boss tasked me with putting one together for him, I felt panicked. A read a few tutorials but that didn't cut it. I couldn't translate the words to the action of actually creating a slideshow. This video hit the spot. It doesn't go super in-depth but it walked me through the practical process of making a presentation. Great instructions."

    "This software really helped me to get the most out of PowerPoint. Beforehand I only had very limited experiences with what I'm able to do when it comes to working with presentations. I was able to get a way better understanding of formatting slides, information, graphics and charts. I felt my sense of organization improved and the certified trainers made everything very easy to learn."

    "We all learned how to do PowerPoint's in high school, but that was just the basic stuff and creating something a little more dynamic can be a little more complicated. While the basics are found everywhere online there are few people that need PowerPoint past the basics and so it's really hard to find expert advice on using the program. When I found PowerPoint Training and Tutorials I knew that this was the place for me. They take you from the very basics all the way up to the most advanced tools. This makes it great for people like me who may have forgotten a few simple things in high school and it makes it so you understand how and why everything works inside PowerPoint the way it does."

    "4 PowerPoint Tricks You Don't Know is a great resource for creating and improving PowerPoint presentations. The steps are easily understood and would most likely be relatively simple to follow if you were already to the point where you wanted to do things such as this with your presentation. The only complaint I would have, as a person that only uses PowerPoint presentations infrequently, is that as he goes on with the tips I feel a bit overwhelmed."

    "The Microsoft Powerpoint Course on Go Skills was just what I needed to refresh my Powerpoint skills. I had not used Powerpoint for over five years and needed to create presentations in my new position. First I tried the free trial and found it was exactly what I needed to hone my skills. I decided to go with the 12 month access because I knew I would need to refer back to the vast information available on the site."
