Summary

For introductory computer courses on Microsoft Office 2010 or courses in computer concepts with a lab component for Microsoft Office 2010 applications. The goal of theExploringseries has been to move students beyond the point and click, helping them understand the why and how behind each skill. TheExploringseries for Office 2010 also enables students to extend the learning beyond the classroom. Students go to college now with a different set of skills than they did five years ago. With this in mind, theExploringseries seeks to move students beyond the basics of the software at a faster pace, without sacrificing coverage of the fundamental skills that everybody needs to know. A lot of learning takes place outside of the classroom, and theExploringseries provides learning tools that students can access anytime, anywhere.
