    Practical

    A very practical guide for teachers who use Office 97 and Office 2000. It takes a little time to digest and transfer the knowledge to your own teaching situation. High school teachers may find it invaluable; elementary teachers may find it not worthwhile. You should already have some experience with suite-type utilities such as MS Works. I do refer to this book often as I am now in an administrative capacity.
