"Word macro tools help you edit faster and more accurately, and you don't need to be a tech whiz to use them." —Jennifer Yankopolus, instructor

Last call! There’s just over a week left to register for the summer session of Word Macros A to Z, Jennifer Yankopolus’s popular course on getting the most out of these incredibly useful editorial tools. The course starts July 10 and runs for six full weeks. Students have called it “a fantastic value for the level of learning and support” and “the best professional course I have ever taken.”
