The Microsoft Office course lasts weeks. The latest version of the office suite is a very complicated program that requires training to be able to use it at its full potential. Most self taught users, while finding it an excellent software suite only scratch the surface of its capabilities.

How long does it take to learn to use windows? How long does it take to learn to use a game? It all depends on the amount of time you invest in learning and how good your learning abilities are. I ve seen books that claim to be able to teach you to use a program in 1 hour, but after learning the basics, it usually takes many hours to become proficient in using it.

The titles may sound like they are talking down to you, but I d recommend looking for the "Dummies guides". (IE: Word for Dummies, Excel for Dummies, etc.) I ve learned many programs (and other things) via that series of books. They explain the basic operations very simply compared to most books that assume you already know some things that if you don t, make learning the program almost impossible.

Microsoft Office is the entire suite. Depending on which suite you get, you may be learning anywhere from 3 to 9 different software programs. So on the average to get the basics plus a little of the extras, depending on your personal abilities, expect 2 - 5 days per software program in the suite.

It is not a difficult program. Read carefully, follow instructions and you should be able to start using it in about 3 hors.

I don't even know what to answer. I have never learned Microsoft Office but I know everything. Apparently it is that easy that some people don't even learn it that is why it shouldn't take you much time.

Depends on your definition of 'learn' and whether you are including ALL elements of Office. If, by 'learn', you mean just the bare essentials you might be able to have minimal proficiency within a couple of months. If you mean thoroughly proficient in all aspects, including VBA, you are looking at a much, much longer time frame.

- 2 weeks go get to know Word relatively well, if you spend every day about 90 minutes steady.

- 3 weeks or more (depends on your learning speed) to get to know Excel relatively well, if you study with the same pace.

- 3 days for Powerpoint, if you don't intend to master it.

- 1 month to get to know Access well, but it could stretch more

We just counted more than 2 months. And this is relative.

If you are looking for learning the entire Microsoft Office suite, then it depends on you. Also, keep in mind that there are so many ways and types of courses for learning all the software. The learning curve at the end depends on you and the level you are targeting to reach.

By yourself, a few minutes.

To use the products productively, measure the learning curve in months. HOWEVER, there is a LOT under the hood. The moment you start to consider using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA, an intrinsic part of Office) to "enhance" what you are doing, that is a whole new ball of wax. If you try to integrate multiple Office components using Access as the anchor, that's pretty deep stuff. I worked with Access for 10 years with the U.S. Navy (as a contractor) and was learning things until the day I retired.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a job later, small business would LOVE to have someone who can ride herd on a complex Office site.

It is not a rocket science it just depends upon your keen interest and tendency regarding learning.


ajay 07/31/2017.

I call it like I see it 07/31/2017.

It depends on the person's aptitude, willingness to learn, and willingness to put in the time. I speak from experience because a long time ago I worked as a technician at a community college computer lab. Part of my job was to assist students using Office. Some were better than others, most were average when it comes to this sort of thing, and some just shouldn't have even bothered to try. If you want to be proficient in this suite then it does take a lot of work. Getting a good book with meaningful examples and stepped, hands-on practice is a good approach. By stepped, I mean your first exercise for a lesson is easy, the 2nd exercise takes some thought, and the third exercise challenges you. If you can do the third exercise then it means you have a good idea what's going on. But proficiency still takes more practice.

Microsoft Office has several programs. Like, Word, Excel, Power Point, Outlook, and Access.

I took a Computer training course on MS Office. Three Months. Access was the Hardest.
