    University edition does what you need

    Posted
    Karl2006

    Why I bought M$ Office: I bought M$ Office University edition because I am a graduate student. For my own purposes, "Open Office" or "Libre Office" - both of which are available for FREE download - work fine. But especially for doing PowerPoint presentations that need to be submitted to professors, to avoid file format and compatibility issues, I got M$ Office. The freeware stuff I just mentioned continues to suffer some compatibility problems when doing PowerPoint presentations or Spreadsheets. Pros: File format compatibility with other Office users, some support from Microsoft. Cons: It's a Microsoft product - I have long had serious issues with the way Microsoft does business. This is why for my own in-house work and for running a small, home-based business, I use LINUX, Open Office, and save work to PDF files if it is to be sent outside. But constraints of the University environment have forced me to use M$ Office in a Mac or Windows environment. "Ribbon" interface - those who have used Microsoft Windows 7 and newer versions of Office have seen the so-called "ribbon" interface. This rather counter-intuitive interface is a departure from the menu structure that users of prior versions of Windows, Mac-OS, and LINUX have come to expect over the past 15-20 years. This new interface has changed a number of one-mouse-click operations such that they now require several mouse-clicks to get the same work done. Spell check and other important editing functions are now buried so one has to hunt for them. As is typical for Microsoft, they have taken a relatively intuitive, easy to use product and complicated it in the name of change for change's sake. Conclusion: All this said, the software works well enough for the most part. Once one learns the ins and outs of using it, it does the job. I recommend it for the sole reason that at least your work should be readable and compatible with most other people's systems in a work or school environment.

    Although I haven't yet used all the aspects of the program, the portions I have used have met all my expectations. I previously had the pre-loaded "starter" version of Office, which met my basic needs, but didn't do everything I needed. This upgrade provided me with all the functionality I require for my schoolwork, and makes it all quite a bit easier. Being a college student and receiving the greatly discounted price made the decision for me. I did reduce my review to four stars because there are a few irritations to which I haven't yet found a resolution, such as Word's preset tabs on bullet lists and outline forms; I have to change them each time I create such a document. I've found the features that allow the user to make the changes the regular format for such documents, but the changes I make don't carry over no matter what options I choose. I'm still optimistic that these are simply features I've overlooked, but it would be nice if there were a better search feature for help options on such topics.

    I am happy with the product. But not happy with the fact the web page was having issues and when I asked about it and the prices on the web page said 99.99 in store but it was 104.99. The cashier told me yeah sometime ads to catch up with the web page and because of shipping costs stuff cost more and was told from the other cashier next to us that management does little to anything to fix or price match off the web page. If I didn't need it for school in a hurry I would of not gotten it and ordered offline from another store.

    The value is great for all the office programs included with this. The only problem we had was with acquiring a product key. The online service offers no assistance. Followed the appropriate procedure and nothing was ever sent. Had to eventually call in to get them to send a product key.

    It is the full version of office 2010 at an great price but you need proof that you are a student or teacher in order to get a key and activate it. The process was simple and straightforward I used my schools email account as proof of being a student but there are other options as well.

    I am proficient in both excel and word, and found this updated version difficult to use. Excel shortcuts have changed and word tracking for edits isn't as user friendly as before. I recommend this product only because there really isn't any competition.

    When updating Office is required to keep up for universities with larger budgets, the student on a tight budget gets left behind. This is a fantastic offer for all the programs a student needs to complete their education.

    Great product overall! Make sure you have internet to get the code! It is very aesthetically pleasing, user friendly and the upgrades from the 2007 version are really nice! My 11 yr old has figured out how to use it already!
