Project Tips: • DO NOT COPY THE EXAMPLES IN YOUR BOOK EXACTLY • PowerPoint is not a word processor. PowerPoint has the 7 & 7 Rule. 7 lines per slide/7 words per line. • Most of your audience can probably read. Do not make your presentation too wordy. • Use the same SmartArt in each part of the project. There is no need to recreate the SmartArt in each portion of the project. • Bullets need a Buddy. One Bullet needs a second. If you have one statement remove the bullet
