Personal Technology -- New Microsoft Program Offers Homework Tools But It's Clumsy to Use

Personal Technology -- New Microsoft Program Offers Homework Tools But It's Clumsy to Use: "I have been testing this new product over the past week, reliving the sheer joy of solving algebra problems, crafting book reports and trying to string together two sentences in French.
My conclusion is that, especially for students who struggle or who need help getting started on assignments, Microsoft Student can provide some aid. Still, it is confusing and clumsy to use and disappointing in some respects. It is really a thin veneer thrown over several existing Microsoft products, rather than an integrated program designed from the ground up."
