I'm Dawn. Pretty new to the group and interested in becoming one of you

I'm finding a lot of jobs with the terms "Microsoft Proficient" in them.
What does this mean??? I do OK in Word but have little experience in Excel,
Powerpoint etc.

How do I become Microsoft Proficient? Is there a test to figure this out??
What aspects of each program make one proficient???

What's the easiest way (cheapest) way to be able to add those terms to my
resume. I think it would be a great investment of my time and if necessary,
$$ if I could be able to prove this to employers.

I'd appreciate your help and insight into this.
