Features & Benefits

  • The authors employ a proven, pedagogically sound approach to teach word processing and document formatting using five steps: Locate and learn commands (Ribbon path), Execute commands (step-by-step directions and screenshots), Apply new commands (short drills), Integrate document design (full-page models), and Reinforce commands and formats in realistic projects.
  • An extensive Reference Guide covers grammatical rules and guidelines and includes a range of model documents, giving students consistent examples to use as a standard for their work. Communication activities, based on rules outlined in the Reference Guide, further reinforce essential business communication skills and prepare students for academic and job success.
  • Quick Check features provide a visual thumbnail solution to help students either confirm that they are proceeding correctly, or recognize notable missteps and adjust as necessary.
  • Nine projects conclude key modules, giving students an opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to realistic workplace scenarios, while two comprehensive projects integrate critical thinking, document formatting, and word processing skills.
