About

Jacques Raubenheimer has completed two masters degrees (Research Psychology, Practical Theology) and one PhD (Research Psychology). He was fortunate enough to have a good PhD promoter who drilled him hard, all for the better! He is currently a lecturer in Biostatistics at the University of the Free State and a research consultant and computer trainer. He is a Microsoft Certified Trainer and a Microsoft Office 2010 Specialist Master Instructor, a Microsoft Office Specialist for Word (Expert), Excel (Expert), Access, PowerPoint and Outlook. He has extensive experience in training students hands-on to write their theses and dissertations using Microsoft Word in a customised training course which he developed. This work resulted in his first book: Doing Your Dissertation with Microsoft® Word: A comprehensive guide to using Microsoft® Word for academic writing (Updated for Word 2007 & 2010) (ISBN: 9780868868141). He now maintains the website http://insight.trueinsight.za.com, where he occasionally blogs, and which contains a set of tools he has developed for students doing their theses and dissertations—the Word uTIlities (a set of Excel uTIlities are rumoured to be in the works). His second book was published in 2014--Mendeley: Crowd-sourced reference and citation management in the information era (ISBN: 9780620594424). His other interests include rock climbing (he is at present a mediocre climber, though he is a qualified rock climbing instructor) and writing (he has won some minor awards for short stories in the past). He started a business selling rock climbing equipment (www.mountainpursuits.co.za), which he sold a few years ago.
