You will need to use Office 2010 to do the SimNet Projects. If you use a previous version of Office, you will get an error message when you upload your project file for grading.
There are 12 SimNet Projects (3 from each Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint) and they are worth 12% of your course grade. You can do the SimNet Projects in a campus lab, if you wish. All the labs have Office 2010. There are 5 Hands-on Projects. They can be done in a previous version of the Office suite, but you may lose a few points for the tasks you are not able to do when using an older version of the software.
To purchase the Office Professional Academic 2010 suite for $99.95, go to this site http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/pd/productID.229301900. It can also be purchased in the Black Hawk College book store, but call ahead to make sure that it is in stock. The price will be higher than the online price.
