Description

Scientific Word is the Windows program used for professional scientific word processing by leading academic and commercial researchers in universities and central banks around the world: from editing screen to printed page. It’s a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) interface to LaTeX, the international standard for mathematical typesetting.
This Training Course, which we have evolved over the last 20 years, is available live around the world for £6400 ($10k) – or just £1600 ($2600) for small groups of 4. I teach all the courses personally (I love it!). This video version gives the exact same teaching: you don’t get me live for Q&A, but you have the opportunity to watch and re-watch – all for a fraction of the cost.
This is originally a Two-Day Course, each day comprising 3 one-and-a-half hour sessions. The video version contains over 4 hours of 720HD teaching, with several exercises for you to complete throughout. The course ends with The Advanced Challenge!
Important: When playing the videos, be sure to watch in HD mode (click the HD button so that it lights up) and full screen mode for the fine detail.

I was a maths undergraduate at Oxford when Rubik’s cube hit in December 1979. I bought my Dad one for Christmas – and then spent 4 days solving it. At my fastest I could routinely do Rubik’s cube in 90 seconds, which made for lots of fun at lots of parties.
Four degrees including a doctorate later, I’m running my own small company in scientific word processing – selling, supporting and providing Training Courses in Scientific Word (WYSIWYG LaTeX). You can read more about me on our company web site.
My two courses on Udemy teach these areas of expertise: Rubik’s cube Inside 3 Minutes, and Scientific Word Technical Typesetting. Show moreShow less
