Dropped – Advanced PC Applications with Lab

May 8th, 2007 Comments off

That’s right – only 30 minutes into the class I am dropping. There is a combination of reason for this. I guess the main reason is that I had a little run-in with the professor concerning missing class last week.

At first she did not want to let me make up the assignment at all and then she relented somewhat and offered to let me turn it in by Wednesday with a 5 point reduction. In all honesty that was fine with me and for the most part generous on her part. But, when I went to class tonight she was having everyone do part of their homework out of the book in class. My book barely shipped out today so I doubted that I would be able to get it in time to do last weeks homework and this weeks also.

So I headed to the admin office.

I ended up dropping this class and picking up the next level of Algebra in its place. Since I am still in the “math” mode I should do well in the class. I’m probably going to send back the books when I get them to save some $$$$$.

New Class – Advanced PC Applications with Lab

May 6th, 2007 Comments off

My new class started last week and I missed it as I was out of town on business. The class is Advanced PC Applications with Lab which is a class on advanced uses on Microsoft Excel and Access. I have used both for years now but from my experience there is always a new trick or shortcut to be learned by taking a class.

ince this is a class who’s subject I am pretty familiar with this semester should be pretty easy – if I can make it to class. Also, I do not have my book yet so I am not able to do this week’s homework. I have an email into my Professor so hopefully she will cut me some slack and either give me more time to complete this week’s homework or let me borrow a book.

Either way I will be working with numbers like I was in my last class but Excel will be doing the crunching this time.

A couple more thoughts –

There are many universities which are offering different short courses, certifications and an online degree as well. However people are interested in Microsoft certifications more than any other degree. Microsoft learning provides online training courses which include online exam to achieve microsoft certification . Popular certifications are MCSE, MCAS, MCP etc. every exam has a unique ID like Exam 70-293 is for Planning and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure. One can prepare for these exams by himself as well a training kit is required for this e.g. Self Paced Kit For Exam 70-294 having 425 prepared questions.
