why you should learn microsoft excel, access and powerpoint

These software packages are very essential in every field. I will explain the first three in details later in this article. There are many hidden powerful details about Microsoft Excel, Access and PowerPoint which I will unravel in this article.

Before now I used to see Microsoft Excel, Access and PowerPoint as trivial application softwares. I had this mentality until one of my friends, Jack went for a job interview and came home weeping that he lost the ob. After consoling him, I asked him how and why he lost the job. He said, “I was given a table of values and was told to use Microsoft Excel to generate a graph based on the values but I couldn’t because I don’t know how to use it”.

From that moment I forcefully developed interest in Microsoft packages, especially MS-Excel, Access and PowerPoint. I found out that these they are not trivial as I initially thought. When I explored deep into these packages, I discovered that almost all fields need them, especially Microsoft Excel and moreover, most business companies now require that you have at least a basic knowledge in these packages especially Microsoft Excel and Access before you are employed.

I will like to explain each of these packages and then elaborate more on their uses and application areas and finally show you where you some websites where you can learn them.
