Overview

Learning Microsoft® Windows XP®
through Applications & Exercises
  • Each lesson contains short exercises designed for using Windows XP in real-life business, school, and home settings.
  • Exercises include key terms, concise notes, conceptual descriptions of Windows XP features, and hands-on mouse and keystroke procedures.
  • Exercise Directions offer step-by-step instructions to put skills to work.
  • Exercises suitable for both Windows XP Professional and Home editions.
From Beginner to Expert—The Skills You Need in the Workplace
  • Learning Windows XP starts with Windows basics. You will become familiar with starting Windows and the Windows desktop environment. Then you will learn the essentials of making Windows work, including creating folders, files, starting programs, and using the many new features of Windows XP.
  • In each exercise, you will develop and practice new skills, and then build on previous skills.
  • By the book's end, you will be able to manage, use, and enjoy your computer with more ease, confidence, and security than ever before.
  • You will also learn how Windows XP offers new levels of customizing the appearance and performance of your computer environment.
Learn by Doing; Not Reading
  • Learning Windows XP launches you into a setting that can take place in the home office, the school, and the workplace. Each exercise begins On the Job with a brief description of how you would use the features of that exercise in many Windows task settings.
  • Each exercise ends with an exercise that simulates a school, workplace, or home office task in which you will apply newly learned skills that can be used again and again for using Windows XP—as well as the many applications designed for it, such as Microsoft Office XP.
