If you are a student in either high school or a post secondary institution you are going to love all of the information packed into one lovely piece of software. If you took all the information in this software and turned it into a book it would be 1000’s and 1000’s of pages in length. Fortunately with a few powerful tools and features the information pertinent to you is always only seconds away. There is a search box on the screen at all times which is very convenient for moving from topic to topic quickly and easily.

The first thing that you are going to want to do after installing the software is to update it to get all the latest information and articles. Gone our the days where Encarta was simply a information database of events that have happened in the past. Encarta has evolved into and information database which is up to date at all times with events that have happened in the past and ones that are going on right now.
