Overview

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

The goal of the Exploring series has been to move students beyond the point and click, helping them understand the why and how behind each skill. The Exploring series for Office 2010 also enables students to extend the learning beyond the classroom.

Students go to college now with a different set of skills than they did five years ago. With this in mind, the Exploring series seeks to move students beyond the basics of the software at a faster pace, without sacrificing coverage of the fundamental skills that everybody needs to know. A lot of learning takes place outside of the classroom, and the Exploring series provides learning tools that students can access anytime, anywhere.

    Very Informative

    The book that I purchased came in a timely manner and was the correct book for class. The book itself is very well informed and easy to use. If anyone wants to learn PowerPoint comprehensivly, this I would recommend.
