a decent amount of information for both Microsoft and Apple users. Nicely organized and straight forward of what was given.

"PowerPoint for Microsoft 365 Reference and Cheat Sheet" is a useful handout that provides a simple and concise overview of the most commonly used functions for Microsoft PowerPoint 365.  The handout provides an overview of MS PowerPoint's ribbon interfacing, detailing the purpose of each main tab as well as a quick guide of the tools found in the Home, View, and Insert tabs. In addition, the handout features verbal instructions for common functions in PowerPoint like creating new slides, changing slide layouts, adjusting templates, etc. and includes a handy cheat sheet of PowerPoint shortcuts on the last page divided into playback and navigation, and formatting and editing shortcuts for both Windows and Mac operating systems.

This handout is clear and easy to read. It is a great companion to "Word for Microsoft 365 Reference and Cheat Sheet." The images of the tool icons provide a quick guide to PowerPoint's interface that makes searching for information on the handout faster and easier. The handout shines in its explanation for inserting and applying animations, which is fairly detailed in comparison to the explanations of other functions. However, like "Word for Microsoft 365 Reference and Cheat Sheet," the explanations are mostly text-based and do not include images beyond the icons and the ribbon, which might not be as suitable for visual learners. Nevertheless, this is a great tool for students who need to create oral presentation assignments and a handy desktop companion for many professionals who do not have much experienced using the program.

The number of PowerPoint documents I'm developing seems to be increasing rapidly. This is a handy guide to the basic functions of putting together those presentations or documents. Sometimes, things aren't as intuitive as you would think, so this guide lays it all out by each tab. The shortcuts list at the end is a great cheat sheet alone.

This is an accessible and useful guide to help the novice (or experts) navigate some of the key components of PowerPoint for Microsoft 365. I frequently use PowerPoint to create professional and academic presentations, and I found myself learning a few new tricks from this handy "cheat sheet"! They cover some of the most frequently used tabs (Home, View, and Insert) with clear and straightforward instructions. 

I would recommend this for anyone who needs a little assist when making PowerPoint presentations. Or, if you are an old pro, it never hurts to learn a few new tricks!

I love these 4 page reference and cheat sheets.  They are a must have if you use Power Point at all. I guarantee you will find tips that you didn't know already.

This is a well-researched and well-conceived cheat sheet for Microsoft PowerPoint users. As a frequent user, in a variety of settings, both on my desktop and online, I found it extremely valuable. I have been a MacBook user and PowerPoint user for well over a decade and found helpful information here that is applicable immediately.

I would like to thank i30 Media Corporation for providing an electronic review copy of their “PowerPoint Microsoft 365 REFERENCE & CHEAT SHEET” for Windows and macOS.

This was a fun item to review since I use Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint professionally on a daily basis. My primary goal was to see if I could learn something useful and determine if this is something I could recommend to friends and co-workers. This product is exactly as claimed. It is a very usable and highly summarized four page reference/cheat sheet for Microsoft PowerPoint. It accurately covers key functionality and procedures that most users would use.

Although most of this content seems to be already available to a good internet sleuth, there is certainly value to having this information formatted and summarized on paper without having to fumble with a web browser to refer to. For those that would like to see exactly what they get before purchasing, at the time of this writing, all four pages are included as product images on Amazon.

I was impressed that this included transition and animation effects.  Those are two areas I do not use enough. I also realized that I should pay more attention to the shortcuts. Especially, the keystrokes to immediately start a presentation could be quite useful, since I usually spend the first 5-10 seconds of every presentation trying to figure out where Microsoft has hidden the “start presentation” button.

As mentioned before this is good reference material. But for me, since I do not need to refer to content like this frequently, I’m not sure if I would purchase it at full value, but it would certainly be appreciated if included with a reference book, or perhaps purchased at a discount as a set.

This is the third item in this series that I have been privileged to review. Like others in the series it assumes some familiarity with PowerPoint - either from a prior version or from training in MS 365 Powerpoint. It contains four pages of useful hints based on the various menus provided by the program. It also includes a page of keyboard shortcuts for both the PC and the Mac. It does not explicitly cover versions of Powerpoint for MS 365 available for tablets or on-line.

These strengths also echo this tool’s weaknesses. Given that much of the four pages echo the main menu, it does not offer much detail about other features that lie below the main menus. Similarly, since it covers both PCs and Macs, many users will consider the unneeded OS as wasted space that could have included more useful details.

I am less familiar with Powerpoint compared to Word and Excel, so I found this reference sheet personally more useful than earlier ones in the series. I give it 4-stars.

I love these easy to use and convenient "cheat sheets." Unfortunately, I was unable to download this, so I'm unable to offer a review.

A multi-page reference sheet for PowerPoint perfect for beginners and experienced users. It briefly covers a huge variety of tasks and gives an extensive list of keyboard shortcuts. 

Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for providing this ARC.

I previously reviewed the Excel Reference and Cheat Sheet and this PowerPoint for Microsoft 365 Reference and Cheat Sheet is just as good.  Sure, I can use the help function...but when you don't use PPT often, this is a quick and easy way to find tools and shortcuts.  The hardest part was downloading Adobe Digital Editions so I could read the protected download!

Thanks NetGalley and i30 Media Corp. for an advance reader's copy for review.

I use PowerPoint (way too much) at my job, so was intrigued to see this cheat sheet.  This is pitched at a basic, entry-level user and does a good job explaining what each thing on the main UI ribbons do, but if you've used PowerPoint for a while there won't be a ton you'll learn.  The biggest plus for me was the list of keyboard shortcuts which can speed things up a ton.
