Ratings and reviews

Rated 3 out of5 by fromPossibly the last functional versonOwned versions since 3.0 on the Mac, used since 4.0 on both platforms. Word in 2011 can be beaten into a decent writing tool, unlike the Windows versions 2007 and later. After seeing Word 2010 (almost unusable for a serious writer or editor), I dread what will happen in the next Mac version. If you must use Word, get this version while you still can.As for Excel, it's nearly a total cluster flop in this version, but can still be used functionally, though they've made it more difficult to deal with real data.Both apps are LOADED with eye-candy and DTP garbage. This gets in the way of functionality. But as every one knows function is much less important than appearance …As for a recommendation to a friend, although I clicked "Yes," this is only for those who must use Word or Excel. There ARE other, better products available for a Mac.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromWorks for me!I've had Office for Mac installed for a couple of years now on both my iMac and my MacBook Air with no problems at all. The only reason I gave it a "good" rating instead of "excellent" is because I personally prefer using the Mac software instead (Pages/iWork) -- but that's just my preference. In terms of comparing how Office works on Windows and how it works on my Macs, it does equally well. I've used it as a student and for personal use.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromNecessary to have, but full of hasslesOne of the worst parts about this product is that I have to sign into my Microsoft account almost every time I turn my computer on. If I don't have internet connection at the time and I just want to work on a paper, this is a serious issue, especially as a college student. Also, it's hard not having publisher. Many times I am sent files in publisher that I cannot open because my Microsoft product only gives me Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromExcellent Product.First, ignore all the bad reviewers about this product. I brought Mac Home and Student Office 2011 for my brand new Mac. It has been a wonderful product and is great for getting work done for college and home. Yes it runs on OS X Mavericks. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromIt works.It works, but it would be nice to have a newer version son. Maybe one with at least some of the features and streamlining that the newer PC office versions have enjoyed.Also It is far too costly when compared to up & coming word processing tools such as Google-Docs, Sheets, Charts and Drive in general.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreatfulI have used Microsoft Office for mac and was very pleased with it. It helped me to make the transition, as I was a pc person until my children convinced me to buy a mac. I love my mac now that I have learned how to use it, and I am glad I made the transition from pc to mac. Both systems have their pro's and con's. I still like the pc, but now I am sold on mac.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromStill very buggy even though on SP3I've used the MS Office suites for years. This version has the most bugs of any I've used, except perhaps 25 years ago. I adopted it early, and hit a bunch of bugs right out of the box. Now we're at SP3, but issues continue, especially with display glitches, multi-column formatting problems, etc.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromFull of bugsI've had this for almost 2 years now. Excel has been great, but Word and Powerpoint are full of bugs. Every time I close an open Word document (when I have more than one open), it shuts down Word completely. When I reopen Word, it opens all of the documents I had opened previously, including the one I was trying to close. So basically if I want to use Word, I have to open 15 documents every time. If I want to create a new document, now I have 16 to deal with. I have a macbook where you can scroll back and forth between multiple windows. Say you have 2 powerpoint presentations open at once, and you go to swipe over to the 1st one from the home page, it will automatically switch to the 2nd one. If you try to then swipe back to the 1st one again, it will switch to the 2nd one again. Most people probably don't have multiple powerpoint presentations open at once, but I had to for school and it was awful. Judging from online forums, I am definitely not the 1st person to have this problem.
