Learning how to use software should be a simple, straightforward, and engaging experience. The book has taken a step-by-step visual approach to teaching the key features of the Office programs, building knowledge in a logical and easy-to-follow way.
In this second edition, Guidelines for Microsoft® Office 2013, we apply those basics to the newest version of the Office suite. As in the first edition, you will find a step-by-step, visual approach that will help you quickly learn the key features of the Office applications, building knowledge in a logical and easy-to-follow way. For every skill, you will have the option of playing a Skills Video to see and hear the steps demonstrated on screen. Structured end-of-chapter and end-of-module activities and projects will help reinforce what you have learned and assess how well you can apply your new skills to realistic work and school situations. As you work through the skills, exercises, and projects in each chapter, you will gain confidence and proficiency.
The authors of Our Digital World have done a lot of work to make the writing in this book easy to read, to find ways to get you excited about how technology is evolving, and to make computing relevant to your work and personal lives.
