The primary goal of the GO! Series, aside from teaching computer applications, is ease of implementation, with an approach that is based on clearly-defined projects for students and a one of a kind supplements package. GO!’s project-based approach clusters the learning objectives around the projects rather than around software features. Teaches students to solve real problems as they practice and learn the features. GO! with Microsoft Word 2007, Brief, 1/e contains a CD-ROM. This edition covers the following topics: formatting and organizing text; using graphics and tables; applying special document formats, columns and mail merges; working with templates, styles, and charts; creating form letters and working in groups. Ideal for students and individuals seeking an introduction to Microsoft Word 2007.
