About this Course

Tech Type Performance Plus
Duration 2 Days

This certification course provides a complete training solution to fully prepare students to achieve Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Microsoft Office Excel 2010 Expert Accreditation. This is an Expert accreditation in addition to the lower level MOS Microsoft Excel 2010 Specialist accreditation which is NOT a prerequisite of the Expert exam. It is aimed at delegates usually as part of the MOS Master Certification track or those simply seeking to attain a higher level accreditation in Microsoft Excel 2010.

It concentrates on getting delegates from knowledgeable to 'exam ready' in a 2 day course. The course is aimed at delegates who already have the raw skills to take the exam, but wish to hone those skills and practice with assistance from an experienced MOS qualified instructor, prior to taking the exam.

Please note this is the Expert level: one of two levels of exam available for Microsoft Excel 2010 (Specialist and Expert). MOS exams are also available for Word, PowerPoint, Outlook and Access 2010.

Included Are:

  • 2-days Instructor Led Training using MOS Official Courseware
  • MOS Practice Exam Voucher
  • MOS Exam Voucher
  • Free Exam Re-take (where required)

During the 2 day course you will cover the following topics to prepare you for exam 77-888: Microsoft Office Excel 2010 Expert. During the course, you will have the opportunity to test your knowledge and complete a full practice exam before taking the final exam at the end of day two.


  • This course has strict prerequisites - delegates should have already attended the relevant Levels 1, 2 and 3 courses or have equivalent knowledge. This course is NOT a fast track course for learning the exam material but a course for turning knowledge in to exam readiness.
