Newbie Wich Office Should I Purchase?

Hello,
I am new to this site. I am 37 and going back to college and would like to get office. Need some help please. I can purchase 2007 cheaper than 2010. Which product do you recommend and would I be just as good to go with the free Openoffice? Thanks for the advice.

hi cetrax, and welcome to sevenforums,

once you're actually signed up as a student, and have a .edu email address, you'll have access to student discounts from microsoft.

you'll be able to download microsoft office professional academic 2010 version for $99.95

how does this compare to your current office 2007 offer?

If your going to be a student with an edu suffix email, than you qualify for MS student deals....It's the best way to go. I recommend getting it with the backup disc, you just never know.

Microsoft Store Online - Buy and download Office Professional Academic 2010, communicate, create, share documents

If you live in the UK, you can get heavily discounted software from here: Microsoft Office 2007 Student discount | Office 2007 on sale

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 can be had for 48, but strangely, Office 2010 is 10 cheaper.

If you don't want to spend any money Open Office is free and can be used with Microsoft Office documents.

I was thinking about purchasing some learning software for Office 2010 and there are a lot out there. Any suggestions?

Once again, we don't know where you live, but many people going back into education go for a European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) qualification as a starting point.

You can get an ECDL text book from somewhere like Amazon at a reduced price.

That's OK.

It might pay you to check on Google to see if there is a similar qualification in the US.

Failing that, the educational establishment you are using should have a supply of good text books to help you out.

And don't forget Microsoft's online help files, which are a mine of information. Many text books are just a rehash of these help files and very often just tell you how to do something with no background on why.
