    As always, I find the good stuff at Slickdeals - this time credit goes to J.Bourne.

    Microsoft Student 2006

    The site is getting slammed so it may take a couple attempts. I was able to get the site and enter my info with no problems but I had to keep hitting back and re-submitting my info. It took 3 tries for it to process.

    I don't know how long this will last, so if you're interested in it or think you might be interested then you may want to hurry.

    Just so you know, this ISN'T Microsoft Word, Excel, etc. It looks JUST like Microsoft Office Student and Teachers version so it's easy to mix them up...

    Thanks for adding that Free4Life11 - I meant to add that note in there. But yeah, it's a new product, and I think there's a small description on that site.

    From the MS website:



    Sometimes the hardest part about doing homework is getting started. Learning Essentials for Students provides assignment-specific guidance in Microsoft Office applications such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint®, and Excel. With curriculum-based templates, tools, and tutorials, Learning Essentials helps with a variety of subjects and assignments, from history reports and essays to physics projects and chemistry labs.


    Getting past the blank page
    The easy-to-use and intuitive tools, templates, and tutorials in Learning Essentials help students get past formatting questions and puts them into the core of the assignment to create high-quality reports, presentations, science projects, and other assignments more easily. Developed in cooperation with well-regarded academic publishers like Pearson Prentice Hall, SchoolKiT, and Great Source Houghton Mifflin Co., Learning Essentials even offers tips, tricks, and tutorials for managing homework projects and developing study aids.


    Writing in Spanish, French, and German?
    Microsoft Student 2006 unlocks tools in Microsoft Office specially designed for foreign language assignments, providing templates for writing in Spanish, French, and German. Once a template is launched, the student will have tools available specifically for writing in that language, such as letters with appropriate accents and spell checking with suggested correct spellings.


    Putting together a polished package
    Learning Essentials help students create accurate and compelling work—even in math and science. Guidelines and templates for Microsoft PowerPoint make for sharp analytical presentations, and templates for Microsoft Excel improve critical thinking on physics and chemistry assignments.

    This is a new software package that MS came out with. It's intended for Middle School and High School students. It contains things like math tutorials and report templates. You can get more information about it on the microsoft.com website.

    Is this some kind of "tutorial" program? Or is it a program that actually does stuff?
