Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I do like the way the books are organized. It is easy to find information by using the index and/or table of contents. I love the reference pages in the back of the book. I teach my students to always look things up. By having the info in one place, makes it easy for my students. I like the exercises that force a student to look up formatting. So many times the students just want to type right from the book without making decisions. In the beginning lessons, I like how the new keys and information are introduced. I love KeyPro."

"This software is the foundation of all four of our keyboarding courses, especially the self-paced courses. We like it very much."

"We have always used South-Western keyboarding books. To us at Columbus State Community College, they are the 'signature' keyboarding books. We have always liked the layout and color schemes presented."
