I found the Word, Powerpoint, and Excel tasks all to be relatively easy. My only challenge with Excel was getting the dates to format. While I followed the intructions found online, the dates would not format properly and I was forced to do it manually.
I found the Access portion of the task to be extremely difficult. I didn't feel that the workshop adequately covered the material. spent a considerable amount of time transfering files from Excel to Access (something that was not particularly challenging) and rather brushed over making relationships and queries. I spent a lot of time fighting with Access before I was able to finally get it to work as I desired. I also felt that the accompanying instructions did not clearly indicate how to complete the practice tests and I did not find them particularly helpful.
