Prentice Hall Test Prep Series courseware is anchored in the practical and professional needs of all types of students. The MOUS titles within this series focus on preparing students to sit for the associated Core, Comprehensive, or Expert MOUS exam. Coverage of concepts and how-to steps make each text suitable for general introductory computer courses as well.
The chapters in each MOUS Prep text exactly match the skill sets—and skills being measured within each skill set—published for the associated MOUS exam. As such, it consists of skills that are built around a series of numbered, step-by-step procedures that are clear, concise, and easy to review. The end-of-chapter exercises have likewise been carefully crafted to reinforce skills and to extend what you've learned into areas beyond the explicit scope of the specific skills. Following, you'll find out more about the rationale behind each book element and how to use each to your maximum benefit.
Each MOUS Prep book is organized by chapters-one chapter per core or expert skill set. A skill set consists of numbered skill areas that are related to that topic. Each skill within a numbered skill area presents a specific task or closely related set of tasks in a manageable chunk that is easy to assimilate and retain.
Each element in a MOUS Prep book is designed to maximize your learning experience. Following is a list of the MOUS Prep skill set elements and a description of how each element can help you:
Prentice Hall Test Prep uses the following conventions to make it easier for you to understand the material.
The Web site that accompanies this book is the tool that empowers you to get the most out of this text (see Figure I. I ). It provides access to all the data files for you to use as you work through the step-by-step tutorials, and the Skill Drill and Challenge exercises provided at the end of each skill set.
Accessing Student Data Files on the Companion Website
Data files are provided for each chapter. The filenames correspond to the filenames called for in this book. The files are named in the following manner: The first character indicates the book series (M=MOUS); the second character denotes the application (W=Word, E=Excel, and so forth); and the third character indicates the level (C=Core or Comprehensive and E=Expert). The last four digits indicate the skill set number and the file number within the skill set. For example, the complete name for the first file in Chapter 3 (Core Skill Set 3) in the MOUS Word book is MWCS301. The complete name for the third file in Chapter 14 (Expert Skill Set 7) in the MOUS Excel book is MEE-S703.
