  5. GO! with Microsoft Office 365, 2019 Edition Introductory


For over 17 years, instructors have relied upon the GO! series to teach Microsoft Office successfully. The series uses a project-­based approach that clusters learning objectives around projects, rather than software features, so students can practice solving real business problems. Gaskin uses easy-to-follow Microsoft Procedural Syntax so students always know where to go on the ribbon; she combines this with a Teachable Moment approach that offers learners tips and instructions at the precise moment they’re needed. Updated to Office 365, GO! with Microsoft® Office 365®, 2019 Edition, Introductory adds tips for Mac users, revised instructional projects, and improved coverage of the what, why, and how of skills application.
