Microsoft Office 2013 Releases Today. They are Offering a New Way to Pay.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint,  OneNote, Outlook, SkyDrive, Skype, New Horizons, Microsoft Office 2013, Microsoft, Windows 8

After months of testing, Microsoft Office 2013 is being released today.  Microsoft Office 2013 has refreshed its looks and feel to be more visually similar to Windows 8.

Instead of paying for Microsoft Office 2013 all at once, Microsoft has decided to start offering superscription fees annually.  Microsoft Office 2013’s Home Premium, which includes such business basics as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook will cost $99.99 a year and include automatic software updates, 20GB of extra storage of SkyDrive (Microsoft’s Cloud Storage Service), 60 Skype World minutes, and use of Microsoft Office 2013 on up to five different devices.  This subscription plan would be a wise investment for most small businesses wanting to upgrade to Microsoft Office 2013.

Microsoft Office 2013’s University edition will cost only $79.99 for four years; however, you will only be able to use it on two devices and this software subscription can only be renewed once at this price.

Microsoft Office 2013 will still be available for a one time price of $219.99; however, the whole push that Microsoft is trying to do with these subscriptions is to have their software update constantly, like a website or application.

If you would like more information about training in any of the Microsoft Office 2013 Suite, Please feel free to give us a call at (813) 387-3500.  At the current moment, We are the only New Horizons to offer Microsoft Office 2013 classes.

CompTIA A+ Revised Exam

In order to meet industry demand, CompTIA will be releasing a new version of their A+ certification exam to ensure that students certified in A+ will be capable of using the information they’ve learned in real world situations. Effective October 9th, students seeking their A+ certification will be required to show their abilities to apply the knowledge learned in the A+ course by completing performance-based questions on the exam. These questions will require certification candidates to perform a task or solve a problem within a simulated IT environment, demonstrating specific knowledge or skills. As of now, the A+ exam only asks multiple-choice questions.

However, existing A+ exam without performance-based questions will remain available to certification candidates until August 31, 2013.
