Woo Hoo

Extraordinary product and great value. Effective clear directions with best products! I highly recommend this to beginner thru expert.





The package came with everything I need for school and help is available at ease if I need it very happy with my purchase and love that it didn't break the bank




Easy to use good program

I bought this as a student and I love it . I find it user friendly and easy to use also excellent customer service . I recommen it .




Works when it wants to...

I mistakenly thought that when I purchased this product (Office 365 University) that it would make my work easier. But almost from the start, I started getting error messages when opening Microsoft Word (Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable) that I did not understand and could find no help with on the Office Support forum. It also becomes non-responsive a lot, especially when trying to save documents. Excel works pretty well, and I haven't used the other programs that came with it yet.

Chocolate Queen


Good to use




Good deal for anyone wanting office

Honestly the only real upgrade I've seen is Excel and Outlook since 2003 Office came out. Both are impressively nicer than they use to be. Access on the other hand has been destroyed and I am waiting to see if they upgrade it.

One person found this helpful.




Great Product!

Microsoft Office is my all-time favorite. Excel and Word I use 98% of the time.




Stall Central

Stalls everytime I open Word or Powerpoint, very frustrating when trying to do school work
