Word Training Material?

Hi,

I have been asked to deliver some Word training. Whilst having a reasonably
sound knowledge of Word, I would like to offer a professional course and
wondered if anyone could point me in the direction of some good quality
learning material?

What I'm ideally looking for is something that, as well as demonstrating the
functionality of Word, will also include good examples / tests / exercises
for the students to carry out.

The course will be roughly 8 weeks long.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated - there are so many books out there,
it's hard to know which one to go for!

Regards
Nathon Jones

Nathon,

I personally have never cracked the cover of a Word training manual or
user's guide. If I had your task, I would create my own training guide
using the resources at the MVP FAQ site:
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/
and kick it off with Shuana Kelly's Basic Concepts:

I have created a series of manuals that I have used to teach Microsoft Word.
If you would like more information -- please email me privately -- Take a
look at my email addy before sending and remove the unnecessary
components....

Thank you JoAnn,

JR also recommended Element K, so I'll definitely give them a look.
