9780132560887: Your Office: Microsoft Access 2010 Comprehensive

For introductory computer courses on Microsoft Office 2010 or courses in computer concepts with a lab component for Microsoft Office 2010 applications.

 

Your Office is the Office Applications textbook written for instructors who want more than a ‘skill & drill’ book that enables students to learn discreet tasks but fails to illustrate the big picture of how these skills work together.  Your Office bridges the gap between skill and application, and empowers students to master Office 2010 as a tool to solve problems and make decisions.


The cases progress students from learning the skills in each Office Application to using the applications as tools to make business decisions.

The unique modular structure provides a strong foundation for students through practice in each workshop and then synthesizes the objectives covered over two workshops, challenging students to really retain what they learned as opposed to learning and then forgetting soon after.

 

The series scenario introduces a large global business (the resort and spa) made up of smaller businesses (golf pro shop, spa, restaurants, event planning, etc) featured in the cases that run throughout all four applications.  This approach gives students a solid understanding of how an organization works by exposing them to how individuals in all facets of a business interact with tools like Microsoft Office and use information to make decisions.

Book Description Prentice Hall, 2011. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Instructor Reviews of the Your Office Series ".( Your Office is what) we have been waiting for. One that takes the students to the level of business, the way it is in the real world. Now the students can make a smooth transition from the classroom to that career." - Carla Jones, Middle Tennessee State University "teaches students the skills they need in the workplace by having students create realistic documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and databases for "real world" scenarios. Students learn by practicing skills over multiple chapters and are given an opportunity to do critical thinking while working on assignments." - Rich Cacace, Pensacola State College "Has students thinking, problem solving and invites them to look past the book . adds value by leading them to understand where they could apply these skills in their "day to day" life." - Karen Allen, Community College of RI "takes students through the entire process from learning the necessary features to actually being able to create documents without much direction--just like they will need to do at work!" - Susan Holland, Southeast Community College "It is a case-based Office application text that does a great job of covering just what we need. The organization of the text is fantastic and the end-of-chapter assessments are the best I have seen in a long time." - Gina Jerry, Santa Monica College "Is a system that allows the student a heap of hands on work, with easy to follow instructions and simply explained figures. The hands-on experience is then translated to real world situations." - Linda Fried, University of CO-Denver "Allows the students to learn application concepts (the Why!) and not just the pointing and clicking." - Susan Fry, Boise State Univ. ".pulls it all together. It starts with basic examples, provides practice, integrates their acquired knowledge and permits the student to perform well." - David Largent, Ball State Univ. "touches on all levels of Bloom's taxonomy. As an educator, this is the greatest development of the 21st century!" - Jennifer Nightingale, Duquesne Univ.
