  • New mini-roadmaps are provided throughout each chapter, visually showing students where they are in the process of completing the chapter project.
  • Critical thinking has been expanded throughout the text. Consider This boxes throughout each chapter provide thought-provoking questions and problem-solving activities. Chapter-ending Consider This: Plan Ahead boxes and Consider This: Your Turn assignments engage students in critical thinking and problem-solving skills to create their own solutions. Plus, every student assignment ends with a question that requires students' thoughts and opinions.
  • New emphasis on personalization asks students to include a personal detail in their solutions to every chapter project and assignment, ensuring that each student solution will be unique.
  • New lab on integrating Cloud and Web technologies with Microsoft Word challenges students to use general guidelines to learn and investigate independently.
