Please help me gain Microsoft Office skills!

I will soon be starting a project/new job that requires better Microsoft Office skills than I currently have. I've used Outlook, Word and Excel in a fairly basic way for years, but need to come to grips with some of the more sophisticated elements of those programs. Plus, I need to learn how to use Powerpoint and Visio, which I've never touched. Yikes. Can you recommend some good online tutorials? I am also considering doing a paid course (online or otherwise) if I can find one based in London that's not too expensive or a rip-off. Can you help?

How to petition a college course prerequisite?

My community college requires a basic, high school level Physics course as a prerequisite to any other course in the subject. While I took such classes in high school, I have no proof of this on my transcript. My only option at this point is to appeal to the head of the department of Science and Mathematics. While I do plan on making as compelling of a case as possible, I've been told that they want to see some kind of proof that a student would succeed in such a class before granting the petition. Does anyone have any idea what kind of things they might be looking for? What might I be able to do to prove that I know the material and would be able to handle the coursework?

Trigonometry terminology?

Math-terminology mismatch? I'm searching for trigonometry in Philadelphia. College-level trigonometry needed for a graduate of an art-oriented high school. Now he's a freshman engineering student, and needs trig over the summer. But I can't seem to find a University or even Community College in Philly with trig on its course list. How is this possible? Has trig undergone a name change since I took it in high school? Or does my son really need to return to (a different) high school in order to learn it?
