    Great book

    This is an excellent book for anyone that wants to work in a law office or is getting a paralegal degree. Its practical and easy to read. It gives a ton of examples and is a great resource just to have. I didn't have any problem with the disk at all. I have used it in my job - it's a good buy.

    Excellent Book for Paralegals

    Excellent book for working with computers in the law office, however, don't touch the demo CD in the back of the book.It reformatted my drive to Novell, and technical support couldn't help.However, the text is simply one if not the best textbook for paralegals. Would have liked to see more about designing databases using Summation.
