 Immerse yourself in Project 2010 as you learn how to navigate backstage, use the quick access toolbar, work with ribbon tabs, and customize the ribbon. You will also walk through the process of starting a project by learning about project setup, calendaring, project tasks, milestones, and the steps to creating a new project from scratch. Once a project is started, you can then begin focusing on how to manage tasks, deadlines, and project constraints. In the deadlines and project constraints section, you will cover the details of the logical schedule model, constraint types, adjusting a task constraint type, and resolving constraint conflicts. 


Learn how to work with project resources and project costs. You will spend time familiarizing yourself with resource types, how to enter and edit resource information, create generic and part-time resources, add resource materials, manage and assign resources, and how to create charts that depict resource usage. For the discussion on project costs, you will find explanations on cost per use, the accrual method, prorated vs. start/end costs, and how to review resource costs. Other topics covered include tracking and analyzing a project, updating task progress, and comparing progress and baseline. 


Gain an in-depth understanding of is how to communicate project information and project collaboration. Concerning project collaboration, it is beneficial to know what your options are in Project 2010, different ways to work with project templates, the steps taken to link multiple projects, about resource pool sharing, and how to export a project to Excel. You will learn about each of those topics, as well as focus on custom fields, views, tables, and how to manipulate data. The data manipulation section explains how to sort filter, highlight, and group data. 


Overall, this training will help you learn the ins and outs of working with Project 2010 and prepare you for Microsoft's 70-178 certification exam.
