About the Author

Joan Lambert has worked closely with Microsoft technologies since 1986, and in the training and certification industry since 1997. As President and CEO of Online Training Solutions, Inc. (OTSI), Joan guides the translation of technical information and requirements into useful, relevant, and measurable resources for people who are seeking certification of their computer skills or who simply want to get things done efficiently. Joan is the author or coauthor of more than three dozen books about Windows and Office (for Windows, Mac, and iPad), video-based training courses for SharePoint and OneNote, and three generations of Microsoft Office Specialist certification study guides. She provides certification development consulting services to software companies, universities, and certification vendors, and enjoys communicating about the benefits of technology at onsite training events. Joan is a Microsoft Certified Professional, Microsoft Office Specialist Master (for all Office versions since Office 2007), Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (for Windows and Windows Server), Microsoft Certified Technology Associate (for Windows), Microsoft Dynamics Specialist, and Microsoft Certified Trainer. Joan currently lives in a small town in Texas with her simply divine daughter, Trinity; an ever-growing menagerie of dogs, cats, and fish (and the occasional frog, lizard, or vole); and the DeLonghi Gran Dama super-automatic espresso machine that runs the house. Joan's first publishing collaboration with her father, Steve, was the inclusion of her depiction of Robots in Love in one of his earliest books, Presentation Graphics on the Apple Macintosh. Steve Lambert started playing with computers in the mid-1970s. As computers evolved from wire-wrap and solder to consumer products, he evolved from hardware geek to programmer and writer. Steve has written or co-written more than 20 books on developing technologies, including Presentation Graphics on the Apple Macintosh, Creative Programming in Microsoft Basic, the CD-ROM The New Papyrus, and Internet Basics: Your Online Access to the Global Electronic Superhighway. Steve is also the author of Built by Anhalt, a biographical exploration into the life and architecture of the famed Seattle architect Fred Anhalt. Steve has specialized for many years in the conversion of content from one format to another, including projects such as the Microsoft Programmer's Library in 1988 and the conversion of the 25-volume Funk & Wagnalls Encyclopedia for the initial Microsoft Encarta CD-ROM. He has created several content authoring and delivery systems, including those used by the Microsoft Mastering Series, the Quick Course Series, and numerous pubStudio titles that are published by Microsoft and several US government agencies. He is a strong advocate of good template design and of using Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) automation to smooth out the conversion, assembly, formatting, and validation of content for delivery via print, ebook, or web.
