Extremely helpful training. I'm 100% more capable with Project 2013 after taking this course. I've always struggled with MS Project, but Simplilearn has changed that. My clients are already commenting on the enhancements I've been able to implement into the MS Project files, and getting a handle of resource pools has saved me countless headaches.
