This brief, highly graphical, colorfully illustrated text offers a beginning skill level in less than 200 pages. Unique pedagogical design has students see, do, practice, and test every software skill motivated by concept explanation. A maximum of 70 skills are covered, each in a 2-3 page spread, which graphically demonstrates and reinforces the concept. Introductory skills are covered in easily absorbed 2-3 page spreads, which graphically demonstrate and reinforce each concept. A business case scenario, running throughout the text, integrates all the concepts and applications. Student Data Files are packaged in the Instructor's Manual (on a CD) and can be copied onto a disk for students, and/or copied to computers in the lab, or placed on the lab's network. A separate, stand-alone, student CD-ROM is available and can be used in place of the text or to support the text. The CD-ROM includes all the features of the text plus a fully interactive self-test at the end of each chapter. Students practice and test their skills by completing a series of tasks. Scored output can be reviewed by the student, printed, or recorded to a disk or a Local Area Network for the instructor. In addition, the CD will be supported by a powerful, comprehensive task-based testing system. A Windows-based computerized test bank supports the text and offers on-screen testing and results-reporting capabilities.
