Am half way through the course and loving it. It's already improved my productivity. I wish there was a Nuts and Bolts Course for Excel, Word, Visio and Outlook (and MS Project if possible). @Taylor : please think about it :D. I am SUPER glad I took this course (mainly out of curiosity). This is the time I have taken a course and actually taken the time to add a review mid way. 10 stars to the course. Definitely recommended.

You will get 10Xs your money's worth by taking this course and then some... I'm only 66% complete and I can tell you with certainty that I have gotten that much value. Take the course... don't even bother wondering if it's worth it. I don't get a dime by endorsing Taylor: I get the satisfaction of seeing less crappy powerpoint slides... Did you register yet? What do you need? Email me for help... Through LinkedIN Dominic Carubba

Though I've been a keyboard shortcut user for a long, long time, I've learned a couple new shortcuts that have already proven to be valuable. I have already used some of the tips from the first portion of the course for our work template (eg, adding the formatting guides). The ninja lines are also incredibly smart! I like the simple callouts used to point out shortcuts and steps shown in the videos, and building one presentation as a scenario in the course is very helpful. I use my desktop computer to watch and my laptop to follow along with the steps. I am looking forward to the remainder of the course.

I was really surprised by the quality of instruction here. There are some really good pointers here on increasing your ability to quickly build decks - especially with regards to slide alignment - as well as structure them.

I strongly believe that what Nuts & Bolts shows you here and trains you is by far one of the best PowerPoint trainings available. It really keeps up to its promise and helps you save hours and hours of time. From essentials (like QAT, understanding, keyboard shortcuts) into highly sophisticated techniques, this course has it all! I'd happily pay double the price for this amazing content, this is an amazing course. Although I consider myself an experienced PowerPoint user, I learned a lot through the ultra express approach, that N&B; teaches here. Worth every single penny!

This course is fantastic! I am only halfway through the course and it has already been worthwhile! It comes with materials (PPT exercise decks and a cheat sheet for reference) so that you can follow along and create some muscle memory. I think the best way to learn is by experiencing it yourself and this course enables you to do that. The pace of the course is perfect and was never too slow or too fast. Moreover the instructor seems extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. The walkthroughs are very clear and he covers all info without making the course seem tedious. I have definitely increased my efficiency in powerpoint, which is something that is very valuable being in a sales role. Only one minor thing I would improve upon would be to make the intro/outro to each section quicker and lower the music volume so that the volume level better matches that of the speaking in the lessons.

Taylor has many awesome time-saving tips, from setting up your PowerPoint environment in a more efficient way, to using SmartArt to quickly and effectively break the monotony of bullet points. This is a course I would recommend to anyone who uses PowerPoint on a regular basis!

If like me, you spend virtually every day creating and formatting powerpoint slides then this course is essential. I have been using powerpoint for over 20 years but I'm always open to any ideas or methods to improve how I use Powerpoint, or increase my speed without adversely affecting quality or accuracy. This course puts a huge tick against both those objectives and it does so in an engaging and immersive way that are easily retained in memory and can be put to use immediately. This course has not only changed the way I use Powerpoint, it has improved the speed and efficiency of virtually everything I do which has in turn increased my output productivity, saving me hours per week performing common tasks in a more efficient and organised manner. The content of the course is set out logically, explained in every detail and clearly demonstrated step-by-step which all combine to make an excellent, hugely beneficial programme.

I think it is fair to say Taylor has come up with the most complete, to the point course I have come across about Powerpoint. Exercises build on top of each other, and if you follow Taylor's directions, you will get MUCH better in Powerpoint then you once were.

This is an absolutely must-take course for all business professionals who use PowerPoint extensively – OR for those who just want to impress their colleagues with their speed. While the road to becoming a PowerPoint speedster isn’t easy, Taylor makes the learning process enjoyable with his high-energy speaking style and excellent production quality. He also offers plenty of practice templates and “cheat sheets” for learning reinforcement during and after the course, as an additional value-add. The speed-building habits do take time to develop. You may actually become slower at first while you’re learning the new techniques, but with practice, you will become many times faster -- and never build slides (or look at PowerPoint) the same way again. Highly recommended!

This is an incredible course and a fantastic foundation for PowerPoint. It is sleek, stylish, smart, and amazingly informative. I am starting at an MBB consulting firm and graduated from an M7 MBA program. From my experience, this course is ESSENTIAL for a college or MBA student either interning or starting full-time at a consulting firm. Don't be lazy--prep for your job early and avoid spending the first 3 months learning how to use PowerPoint at a high level instead of learning how to problem solve. As many friends have told me, knowing Excel and PowerPoint can start you off REALLY strong and make the difference between an average bonus and a top $40k bonus.

I just finished watching the Nuts & Bolts PowerPoint Speed Training videos, and I honestly can't believe the results. In the same amount of time it previously took me to finish a single slide, now I can complete an entire presentation. The extra time has allowed me to review all of my slides, both for mistakes and the opportunity to add extra visuals to my slides. These videos have saved me countless hours of frustration.

This course is fantastic! This is so much more than keyboard shortcuts and other times saving tips, it really is a comprehensive strategy for becoming a speedster in PowerPoint. I have often found these types of courses difficult to follow what exactly the presenter is doing, but this course is excellent with tooltips and popups showing what exactly is being pressed and why, and it does it seamlessly without making it tedious at all. In addition to all the tips and techniques, this course also provides something tangible in the Quick Access Toolbar customization file, so that you can immediately be better configured to be faster in PowerPoint. So if you have ever spent countless hours creating slides and still not able to get them looking clean and polished, then this is the course for you. Great teacher, great content, and great course format! Highly recommend!

I used to spend a lot of time on making PowerPoint by my mouse. But after spending about 1 week on taking these lectures, I almost can make everything in PowerPoint by shortcuts, which save my time and make my work easier and efficient! Also, I don't need to use my eyeballs to see if the shapes are lined up any more! The course makes me like PowerPoint. Strongly Recommended!

When I first started working at a investment bank, it took me over 3 hours to edit and create a 5 slide presentation (when it usually takes others 30 mins)! It looked very easy until I had to eye ball all the alignments and reshaping (so painful!). This short and super easy to follow training workshop has helped me dramatically in my powerpoint career. I highly recommend anyone that uses powerpoint to take this course. Now I just have to figure out ways to show off my powerpoint skills as a party trick!

This course is a cool workshop to make your work with PowerPoint a lot faster. It starts with customizing PowerPoint to better match a “keyboard only approach”, then it works through the design of four slides. These slides are designed in a way the instructor can show you all the time savers included in this course. There are not only speed tricks, but also descriptions about how to align objects in a way you normally would think is impossible (some of these tricks are amazing!). This will give you the ability to build up perfectly designed slides. This “Nuts & Bolts”-training also provides some useful material like a handy list of PowerPoint shortcuts and an export of a well selected “quick access toolbar” that you can import to have this customization done within seconds.

I’ve done a lot of PPT slides for work and I still got many tips and tricks I didn’t where aware of. If you are designing a lot of PowerPoint slides, I would strongly recommend to take this course to be able to spend more time on thinking about the content and less time on formatting things and moving the mouse.

This is by the BEST Powerpoint Guide out there for professionals who make extensive use of powerpoint. Connector messes, alignment challenges, we've all been there, done that. This guy is clearly familiar with all types of predicaments that heavy powerpoint users face in everyday responsibilities, and provide the best solutions to deal with those challenges in a concise and systematic manner. He's system of QAT bar is also one of the best I've seen. If you have no idea what QAT is, why Ctrl+D is better than Ctrl+C,V, locking mode for paintbrush and drawing, and of course, NINJA LINES! This is for you. Thanks to all the time that will be saved with the techniques explained here from now on, I'll be surely one step closer to finding my work/life balance!

having worked at financial institution previous summer, I realized that being skilled in PPT and excel would give me a definite competitive edge over my peers during internship because i wasn't really aware of any good PPT tutorial, I asked some of my friends to help me find one, and one of them recommended this course (he personally knows the course instructor..heard he is a chill and funny guy lol) anyways, i finished most of the course and am really satisfied with it. it taught me many useful tips that i wish i had known earlier, and i will definitely make use of them for the upcoming summer internship. i think this course is especially useful for people working in finance, consulting, business, start-up, or any other industry in which lot of time is spent on client presentations im planning to go over the course one more time before summer starts. highly recommend this course!

Admittedly a little intimidating/overwhelming at first, I found the course easy to follow and very informative, regardless of any previous experience with PPT and/or lack thereof. The formatting is beautifully done, and I love that each unit is broken down into smaller mini-lectures. I've done other courses where each lecture is 1+ hours long, and I just do not have the time to sit straight through them. These lectures make it easy to jump in for a quick class, or watch them one after another, depending on how much time you have. It was definitely eye-opening as well. Ninja lines?! What?! No more amateur eyeballing it for this girl! I now find myself sitting through pitches and other people's presentations, silently critiquing their work ;) Overall awesome course, and I cannot wait for an Excel workshop to come out (please?).

This course is incredible. From watching the videos I am able to see how this course will get me through creating my power point presentation at an accelerated pace, but will still embody the very professional mystique that I strive for. Definitely making me look like a veteran user against all my peers. The walk through and clarity given in each video is so thoroughly described that it is easy to follow and use. Plus I learned of new ways (shortcuts) to get things done at a faster rate. I will be able to go out for a run, read War and Peace, drink some Orange juice and come back before my colleges are done with their power point. This is a really hands on learning experience. It takes the effort to learn, but so does everything worth while in life, and this is definitely worth your time if you are a constant power point user.
