I have completed tasks 1 through 6 in short spurts over several months. The word processing task and presentation task were relatively simple. I had some difficulty with the spreadsheet task as I was using a Mac and there seemed to be an issue with converting the date (I had to go back and fix the initial format of the Award date column), but other than that it was fairly straightforward. Again because of a Mac, I had to wait until I could use Access on a PC to create a database.
In general the tasks were fairly straightforward with adequate instruction. Some more examples or practice exercises would have been helpful, if only to play around with other features in some of the programs. I went to a few of the workshops, and they were also very helpful for getting the tasks done.
