This review provides the reader with a comprehensive strategy about how to prepare and deliver a slide presentation by using the most popular software presentation program, Microsoft PowerPoint. With extensive preparation, keen organization, precise formatting, appropriate use of audiovisual aids, and effective delivery, PowerPoint can be a successful tool for teaching. However, if used ineffectively, this technology can prove to be disadvantageous where listeners may succumb to passive learning without critical thinking. This paper will guide novice speakers to refine their presentation skills and will encourage experienced presenters to refresh their presentation approach.
