Looking for a keyboarding book without all the extra applications? APPLIED COMPUTER KEYBOARDING 6E is a one-semester new-key-learning text with basic word processing and document formatting. Computer keyboarding is emphasized as touch typing is learned and business-correct documents needed for every workplace are produced. This revised edition includes new cross-curricular activities and is written to support and align with the new-key instruction and word processing features in South-Western's MicroType keyboarding software.
