Who this topic is for
MOS 2013 Study Guide for Microsoft PowerPoint is designed for experienced computer
users seeking Microsoft Office Specialist certification in PowerPoint 2013.
The MOS exams for individual programs are practical rather than theoretical. You must
demonstrate that you can complete certain tasks or projects rather than simply answering
questions about program features. The successful MOS certification candidate will have
at least six months of experience using all aspects of the application on a regular basis—
for example, using PowerPoint at work or school to create and manage presentations
and slides, insert and format slide content (including shapes, text, tables, charts, SmartArt
graphics, images, and media), animate slide content, transition between slides, manage
multiple versions of a presentation, and prepare presentations for delivery.
As a certification candidate, you probably have a lot of experience with the program
you want to become certified in. Many of the procedures described in this topic will be
familiar to you; others might not be. Read through each study section and ensure that
you are familiar with not only the procedures included in the section, but also the
concepts and tools discussed in the review information. In some cases, graphics depict the
tools you will use to perform procedures related to the skill set. Study the graphics and
ensure that you are familiar with all the options available for each tool.
