Summary

ALERT: Before you purchase, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. Several versions of Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a CourseID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products.

 

Packages

Access codes for Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products may not be included when purchasing or renting from companies other than Pearson; check with the seller before completing your purchase.

 

Used or rental books

If you rent or purchase a used book with an access code, the access code may have been redeemed previously and you may have to purchase a new access code.

 

Access codes

Access codes that are purchased from sellers other than Pearson carry a higher risk of being either the wrong ISBN or a previously redeemed code. Check with the seller prior to purchase.

Ideal for students and individuals seeking an introduction to Microsoft Word 2013.

The Exploring series charts readers beyond the “point and click,” helping them understand WHY they use Microsoft Office skills along with HOW they perform them. The latest edition provides an easy-to-follow map through each chapter to help readers learn, study, and review efficiently and be successful in this class and beyond. The entire approach allows students to map their way quickly and easily through the book, focusing on the key objectives, and using their own efficient study habits as a model for success.

 

Teaching and Learning Experience

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience–for you and your students. Here’s how: 

  • Personalize Learning: MyITLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals.
  • Move Beyond the Point and Click: Students can move beyond the basics of the software at a faster pace, without sacrificing coverage of fundamental skills.
  • Extend Learning Beyond the Classroom: A lot of learning takes place outside of the classroom, and the Exploring series provides learning tools that students can access anytime, anywhere.
