Book News Annotation:

Miller has written many how-to books, mostly on computer-related themes, but this is a teaching and learning tool designed for use in a classroom setting, and includes in-chapter activities to allow students hands-on practice, end-of-chapter exercises, and instructor supplements. He explains how to use features of the most popular World Wide Web search engine, Google. They are the Web search, other search tools, gmail, the calendar, document processing, spreadsheets, and presentations. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
