Hot Tip: There are many “rules” on the use of bullets on PowerPoint slides. Some are adamant the magic number is 3; some say 4. Some say use no more than seven words per slide! So many rules that one could be tempted to throw up their hands and cry “UNCLE!” and use as many bullets as will fit on the slide, or rebel and use no bullets at all. Instead, use good design sense to keep bullets short by removing unnecessary words, split large amounts of content into separate slides and sub-sections, and ensure that your font size is readable in the back of the room. That’s the secret for discovering the magic number of bullets to use in your presentation!
