MS Word Beyond the Basics - Skills builder

Perfect to complement the Word textbook chapters

MS Word is one of the most useful applications for anyone who uses a computer in their studies, at work or at home. However, a great many people have never been taught the best or most efficient way of performing simple tasks like creating a neat list in columns, placing images exactly where they want them or quickly changing text styles throughout a document.

This unit, consisting of 10 short 10-15 minute skills lessons, helps to teach essential skills in presenting and writing assessment materials such as coursework, case studies, reviews or even typed homework. The material perfectly complements the textbook Word Beyond the Basics, using the same exercises and presented in a format that can be used in the classroom.

The presentation and organisation of students' written and typed work can be vastly improved in very little time. Students can increase the pride in their work and save hours avoiding frustration with tabs, create instant contents pages and present images in a way that avoids them jumping around.
