Most Helpful Customer Reviews
As a long-time Computer Instructor, I found the book moved too quickly into advanced topics. The flow favors users who already have a familiarity with MS Office, but it also treats Basics lightly e.g. Copy-n-Paste shows up too far into the Modules. I also found that some students will follow the book's directions, but not learn the concept. That may or may not be the book's fault. I also found that College Students try to not open the book because of its cost - they want as much back as they can on re-sell. I plan to use my book in my volunteering classes so that I can continue to give 1-on-1 support/instruction to my students. I think using the Modules as self-training tools will help me when my students are ready to learn and understand the advanced topics.
