Unless you are using Mac OS X using OpenOffice is much like using Microsoft Office - just download it, install it, and then use it Very Happy .

You should find that it is much like any other word processor, and I would say it's most comparable to a cross between the pre-'97 (Word 5.0?) and 2000 versions of MS Word, with a look more like the former, and with functionality more like the latter.

The Help for OO math is quite good. I copied it to another OO document, added two more columns in their example table and added sample command window text streams and in the next window actually entered the formula result.

I initially 'requested' the OO team modify OO math to more closely emulate MS formula editor, but after RTM, I'd sold on OO math. Much faster to type the commands using their markup tags (which are quite intuitive) and pasting the formula.

I build my math test using a table format for answer blank column, question number column and a math formula column. For my 'template' I add a row under each question where I type the commands to produce the formula, directly below the formula in the template. I can 'cut' this, move the cursor to the original formula cell, open the Math Fomula command window and paste it the formula. From here it is easy to modify the question for multiple versions of the same test.

Use 'save as' to save the new version. I include the file name in my header, so it is easy to track the file for future reference.

I also customized the side toolbar and added the Math Editor icon to make it readily available for use in any text document. (saved this as my 'default' writer template).

On OOOdocs there are some small tutorials which are very good if you are starting to use OOo. There is one for math as well.
