How We've Organized the Book

Each lesson in Learning Microsoft Excel 2002 is made up of twelve lessons. Every exercise (except for the Critical Thinking Exercises) is made up of seven key elements:

  • On the Job. Each exercise starts with a brief description of how you would use the features of that exercise in the workplace.
  • Exercise Scenario. The Excel tools are then put into context by setting a scenario. For example, you may be the manager of computer store putting together a monthly sales report or a weekly payroll form.
  • Terms. Key terms are defined at the start of each exercise, so you can refer back to them quickly. The terms are also highlighted in the text.
  • Notes. Concise notes describe and outline the . computer concepts in each exercise.
  • Procedures. Hands-on mouse and keyboard procedures teach all necessary skills.
  • Application Exercise. Step-by-step instructions put your skills to work.
  • On Your Own. Each exercise concludes with a critical thinking activity for you to work through on your own. You are challenged to come up with data and then additionally challenged to use the data in a workbook. The On Your Own sections can be used as reinforcement, for practice, or to test skill proficiency.
  • In addition, each lesson ends with a Critical Thinking Exercise. As with the On Your Owns, you need to rely on your own skills to complete the task.
