Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I really liked the content and updated material contained in the Skill Builders and I thought that they were relevant to today's students. I also loved the Communication Skills. They were very appropriate for today's learners."

"I love the color scheme! The bright colors are so appealing to the eye and up-to-date. Colors are definitely the "in" thing right now in the decorating and fashion world, so why shouldn't our textbooks be bright and cheerful as well?...The layout and organization is a definite strength of the sample manuscript. Instructions are clear and easy to follow."

"An important strength lies in the content being so up-to-date. I love the inclusion of correct procedure for email communication and the inclusion of how to perform various formatting using a word processor--Word (which is the most popular). Another strength is the explicit detail of 'how to' instruction, and then the many practice exercises that follow. The exercises also increase in degree of complexity for the student which provides the students challenges and allows for opportunity to utilize Office features. I really liked the application activity in Office Features 3."

"The use of the color is very well done, using various colors to emphasize one activity and then another. One thing I really like on this page is in activity 1. I like the way it shows the students what they will be doing: left tab, decimal tab, right tab with leaders, first line indent, and hanging indent. I like that the students can see those headings and right below each one is an example of what that will look like. What a great tool for teaching the concepts and then to use a reference as the year moves on. Great job on that!!!"

"The strengths (of the manuscript) are simple explanations; easy to understand; great examples, incorporating uses into the skills they learn; loved the activities where the students exchanged files to practice tracking; great way to engage students; variety of activities should keep students engaged in learning and practicing new formats; interspersing of a variety of formatting skills…"
