What is the difference between Mircosoft Home and Business and Mircosoft Home and Student?

Other than price? I am a student but I will also be opening my own business within the year. From the website, it looks like the same thing. Is there any difference? Since I am opening my own business and will be working with other businesses, should I invest in Microsoft Office Pro?

  • Home and Office has more software, like Publisher

  • You can do a comparison on the Microsoft website, it will show exactly what is included in each package. You can see for you personally if the extra cost for the Home & Office is worth it for you.

  • I believe Home and Office also comes with Access where as the Student version does not.
