GO! with Computer Concepts Getting Started provides an introductory overview of computer technology; different functions and types of computers,  hardware and software components. In addition, it provides guidelines for how to approach the use of technology ethically and responsibly.


In today's fast-moving, mobile environment, the GO! with Office 2016 series focuses on the job skills needed to succeed in the workforce. With job-related projects that put Microsoft Office® into context, students learn the how and why at the moment they need to know, all in the appropriate Microsoft procedural syntax.


For Office 2016, the hallmark guided-practice to skill-mastery pathway is better than ever. Students have many opportunities to work live in Microsoft office to apply the skills they've learned. In addition, these learning objectives are presented in project-based scenarios that prompt students to prove mastery in the context of real-world application.
