DSD: Styles and table of contents in Word - Workshop
Course Description:

A style is a collection of formatting features rolled into one command. Styles make the task of formatting headings of long documents much easier and more efficient. Once styles are applied to document heading they can be used with other advanced features, such as in the creation of a table of contents or numbered headings, and with the navigation pane or outline view.

Styles are also one of the most important formatting features used to make documents accessible.
