Tutorials and revision materials

In addition to the online courseware you will be/are using in lessons, I have compiled a series of links which you can use at school, but also at home to help you get ahead and be more prepared for the assessments


Self assessment checklists

It is worth printing a copy of each checklist below and ticking off the areas you feel comfortable with. You can then see where you may need to spend some more time prior to the test

General revision

There are a great set of tutorials available for Microsoft Office 2010 available below. They enable you to select the particular aspect of the software you may be having trouble with


There also tutorials on the Teach ICT website specifically covering Modules 3, 4 and 6* of the ECDL here

* Wherever possible, you should select 2010 versions of Word, Excel and Powerpoint when requested. You can still use 2003 and 2007 versions, but it may look slightly different.
