September 24, 2013, 1:15 PM — Despite the growing number of alternatives to Microsoft Office, Microsoft's office suite isn't going away any time soon. Whether you need to use Office at work or just prefer it for personal use, you can master Word, Excel, Access, and more with these free online resources.
The list of links has been gathered by Eric Ligman over at MSDN. (Ligman's the guy who also offered us the collection of free technical e-books from Microsoft). Not surprisingly, many of the links lead to his other posts where he pulled together other resource collections, but this list is a handy one-stop-shop for all things related to learning Microsoft Office for free.
You'll find tutorials, virtual labs, e-books, cheat sheets, and more online training. Definitely worth bookmarking if you want to get more use out of Microsoft Office!
