Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"What I have reviewed I like so far, and we have another winner here. Manuscript is well written easy to understand and follow. The reading level…can be used in grades 5 and up. I would also use this for ESOL students. The layout of the pages is excellent and not cramped. I like the objectives very much, as they give direction to the student as to what is expected. Illustrations are excellent as well as the theme of the book."

"This chapter is an excellent introduction to the concept of how a database functions. The descriptions of the various aspects of a database give the student enough information without being overwhelming. Each introduction to the lesson leads the student quickly to hands-on application of the skill being introduced."

"The introduction paragraphs to templates are excellent--they create interest in using a feature that can save them time in producing common documents. I am really impressed with these three chapters. I think you have done a masterful job. Thank you for asking me to review for you. It has been a great experience."
