Overview

Praised by instructors for its concise, focused approach and user-friendly format, the Illustrated Series engages both computer rookies and hot shots in mastering MICROSOFT EXCEL 2013 quickly and efficiently. Skills are accessible and easy-to-follow thanks to the Illustrated Series’ hallmark 2-page layout, which allows students to see an entire task in one view.

Each unit begins with a brief overview of the principles of the lesson, and introduces a case study for further application.

"I like the very user-friendly approach and layout of the Illustrated book, as well as the pedagogy – the review skills and concepts. The students are reading and using the extra tips and information in the margins, which is a surprise to me because with the previous book I used they were overwhelmed by too much information. This 'hits it'."

"My custom Illustrated books cover the material well. My students tell me that they are written in a way they can understand. The books give excellent material but leaves the instructor room for innovative projects. The exercises are great learning tools. When the students tell me they are reading the text, I know we have made a good choice."

"Very user-friendly for students. Good graphics and activities. Provides the concepts in a way students understand."
