Book News Annotation:

Noticing that students came to class with both Microsoft and Apple products, Richardson (director, online information technology, at a private university) and Thies (Tulane U.) developed a textbook that covers computer and Microsoft Office suite basics and advanced features on both platforms. Chapters include review questions and exercises with an answer key. Appendices feature information about additional productivity software, online document creation and sharing, and Excel functions. The DVD offers video tutorials, project files from the text, Excel templates, and MS Office shortcuts. A companion website offers additional project samples and resources.
