Windows 7: Newbie Wich Office Should I Purchase?

Hi Cetrax

I can't really comment about the United States but I have worked for several colleges in the UK and you would be amazed at the differences in the software used.

If you are going to enrol with a specific college, it would be a good idea to give them a phone call and ask them what software they are using and also where you can get a copy from. Sometimes a Student copy will be available at a much reduced cost.

There is nothing worse than a situation where you create files at college, put them on to a usb device to view them at home and find that they don't work because your software is incompatible.

Hope This Helps

Here's a comparison - you'll have to determine what applications/features are important to you, and at what monetary cost:

Re which suite to buy??


Academic gives you

Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access
For about $100 from Microsoft, for 1 copy student registration required.

Normal Student Home Edition gives you

Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote only
For about $105 for 3 copies

In my book Academic wins out 10 fold because I use Outlook and Access all the time, and it's got a good chance Access will be part of your college course.

Hope this helps
