Teaching Business Software


The IT in Simon Sez IT stands for Information Technology. In a nutshell: We make business and technical software simple to learn. We teach people to use the most popular business software including Microsoft Office, Microsoft Project, Photoshop, Web Design, and QuickBooks. Self-paced, affordable software training is what Simon Sez IT is all about. We only hire the best authors to teach and our style is to take the time to explain things in the detail they deserve. That means our courses are perfect if you're new to a certain technology or just technology shy in general. Chris "Simon" Calder was working as a Project Manager in IT for one of Los Angeles's most prestigious cultural institutions, LACMA. He taught himself to use Microsoft Project from a giant textbook and hated every moment of it. Online learning was in its infancy then, but he spotted an opportunity and made an online MS Project course which he sold on DVD via eBay. Fast forward to now and Simon Sez IT has taught hundreds of thousands of students through its online course platform and popular YouTube channel.

Very very well presented training. Clear voice, easy to follow If you want to make the most of this training you would have to spend more than the 8 hrs course duration. I would say 16-20 hrs, if you want to do all exercises and do the recommended further reading on the extra topics. Definitely a training I would recommend..

Clear and concise. A bit time consuming for someone who knows Word, but well worth the time and patience because you still pick up some nice shortcuts. For a true beginner, it covers everything you would ever need and more. Big thanks to the course creator for taking so much time and effort making this!
