Who this topic is for
MOS 2013 Study Guide for Microsoft Outlook is designed for experienced computer users
seeking Microsoft Office Specialist certification in Outlook 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 Outlook at work or school to create and send messages,
format message content, organize and manage messages, schedule appointments and
events, manage meetings, create notes and journal entries, track tasks, store contact
information, locate information, and print and save information. You should also know
how to customize Outlook settings and automate tasks within Outlook.
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

tools discussed in the review information. In some cases, graphics depict the tools you

you are familiar with all the options available for each tool.
