This core Computer Usage and Applications text provides a survey of computer skills necessary to succeed in professional and academic careers. This includes a survey of Operating Systems, Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint, as well as Google Apps. There is a focus on analyzing and solving business problems in the most efficient way possible. Students are given clear, easy-to-follow instructions for each skill presented and are also provided with opportunities to learn additional skills related to the personal and professional objectives presented. Students will learn the objectives with detailed instruction in the ‘Learn It’ and ‘Practice’ assignments; and expand their knowledge with ‘Master’ and ‘Challenge It’ activities. Students are challenged to use critical thinking to solve real world scenarios. For example, ‘fix-it’ case studies are included so students gain an appreciation for the real world application of these technologies.
