This certification has 3 units:
•    Unit 1:  Computing Fundamentals (computer concepts)
•    Unit 2:  Using Productivity Software
•    Unit 3:  Living Online (the Internet)

Each of these units is available as a separate Computer Literacy for IC3 text. This text contains: Unit 2: Using Productivity Software — Microsoft Office 2010 and covers productivity software based on Microsoft Office 2010 including common program functions, word processing functions, spreadsheet functions, and presentation software functions.

The third edition of Computer Literacy for IC3 has been revised to keep up with the IC3 program’s evolution, which reflects the recent changes in computers and technology. Instead of publishing one large, comprehensive text, the three units are now available as separate, smaller texts.
