Microsoft Office Word 2010: Comprehensive provides a project-based, step-by-step approach to successfully teach students Microsoft Word 2010 skills.
This textbook, meant for use in 10-15 week courses, teaches Word 2010 to students who may have no computer experience beyond the high school freshman level. It begins with essential concepts and skills, from starting and using a program to finding help, then uses projects to explain the program's features. It provides step-by-step instructions on how to create, format, and edit a Word document; a research paper; a business letter; a document with a title page, lists, tables, and a watermark; a résumé; form letters, mailing labels, and a directory; a newsletter; a reference document with a table of contents and index; and a template for an online form. It also explains document collaboration and integration tools. This edition includes a streamlined first chapter on basic skills, chapter topic redistribution, new boxes telling students what to do before taking a break, within step instructions, and modified instructions that provide reasons for specific tasks, as well as a new appendix with an American Psychological Association version of the research paper. A companion website contains student and instructor resources, such as flash cards, practice tests, and puzzles. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
