GO! with Office 2016 Getting Started is an Introductory text that offers a chapter on core Office 2016 features, and then one chapter for each of the four primary applications that introduces students to the basic features of each. Using the scenario-based instructional projects students learn the basics and then apply them through mastery, problem-solving, and critical thinking projects.
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.
MyITLab for this text provides students and instructors with access to the eText, chapter quizzes, testbanks, and other instructor resources.
