Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
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.
• 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 PowerPoint 2010 or courses in computer concepts with a lab component on PowerPoint.

The primary goal of the GO Series, aside from teaching computer applications, is ease of implementation, with an approach that is based on clearly-defined projects for students and a one of a kind supplements package. GO 's project-based approach clusters the learning objectives around the projects, rather than around software features. Overall, this approach teaches students to solve real problems as they practice and learn the features.
