This hour furthered your PowerPoint knowledge by showing you how to turn a sample presentation into the presentation you want. The views are more critical in PowerPoint presentation development than in Word or Excel. The different views give you a completely new perspective of the presentation. In addition, you use the different views for different functions, such as editing, rearranging slides, and previewing your presentation. Whereas one view is for the audience, another view exists for the speaker.
As you might expect, you can change PowerPoint slide text easily by using the basic text-editing skills you have already mastered. The views enable you to view your slides, outline, and speaker's notes in their most usable form.
The next hour demonstrates how to format your slides with more detail, how to test and start the PowerPoint slide show, and how to spruce up your slides with graphics.
