I had to use 18e version - same authors but Microsoft Word 2010 with the student license to use the Web Reporter (it's an online class). I must tell you, you will grow to hate the little man in the program. This is the worst program I have ever had to use. Not a single student at Savannah Tech that I spoke with enjoyed this class. You spend so much time fighting to get your lessons accepted, that you end up frustrated and don't learn anything. I would not recommend it anyone.
