The GO! System: Designed for Student Success!


The goal of the GO! Series is to provide you with the skills to solve business problems using the computer as a tool, for both yourself and the organization for which you might be employed. When you use the GO! Series in one of your courses, you use a “system” that includes a textbook, CD, and Companion Website with tools like videos and self-study aides.


Student CD Package

The Student CD package that comes with your book includes a CD to help you complete every project faster!


• Student Videos help you visually learn the skills in each chapter.

• Student Data Files needed to complete the projects in the textbook.


Student Textbook

• Project-based so you learn by creating real world projects, not by reading long pages of text or simply practicing features of an application.

• Very clear instruction directs you first where to go, then what to do, when completing steps of the projects to help ensure you don’t get lost.

• Visual Summary shows you up front what your completed project will look like, and a File Guide clearly shows you which files are needed for each project and how to save the document.

• Lots of large screen shots allow you to check your work and make sure you are on the right track at numerous points in the project.


Student Companion Web Site: www.pearsonhighered.com/go

An interactive web site featuring self-study tools to help you succeed in this course!


• Online Study Guide provides practice of the chapter material by answering auto-graded objective questions.

• Glossary of key terms reinforces terminology as you learn the language of computing.

• Student Data Files needed to complete the projects in the book are downloadable from this site.


For introductory computer courses on Microsoft Word 2010 or courses in computer concepts with a lab component on Word.


Teach the course YOU want in LESS TIME! 


The primary goal of the GO! Series, aside from teaching computer applications, is ease of implementation. This approach is based on clearly defined projects for students and a one-of-a-kind supplements package for instructors.
