Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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."

"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."

"The flow seems to be sequential and the directions were good. The software is so different, but I was able to locate what I needed to do the work. It is going to be a huge learning curve for faculty and students who are accustomed to using a previous version of Word. I think the amount of functions covered per lesson were appropriate—not too many or too few."
