Microsoft have released Exam 77-886: SharePoint 2010 for advanced SharePoint users, who are beyond the adding content level and use SharePoint features to create solutions. It’s a very comprehensive examination of SharePoint features. Next week I will be booking an exam for sometime in September – I will report cost etc as I proceed. I find doing a certification exam makes you “look in all the obscure corners” and get properly across all the features of a software package. Setting a date and booking an exam is a crude but effective time management tool for making sure it happens!
I have been catching up on the last couple of Episodes of the Windows Weekly Podcast by Paul Thurrott. Found the software tips very useful, particulary Ribbon Hero 2, Clippy’s Second Chance. This is a free learning game by Microsoft – aimed at end users having trouble moving from the Office 2003 interface to the ribbon. So I have downloaded, installed and started playing it. Its fun! Recommended for recalcitrant ribbon users.
Please complete the simple form below and I will send you a link to download a four page guide to Applying Numbering to Headings One to Three and Paragraphs (as you might use in a legal environment) using Word 2010.
While I am a fan of the Security Now podcast for Steve Gibson’s in depth, detailed, geek oriented analysis of security issues, it does have tips for end users. The lastest is the free Microsoft Security Scanner, which is an on demand tool for detecting and removing malware.
This doesn’t replace your normal anti-malware suite, it is a tool you would download (only 70MB) from time to time and run an extra security check.
