This book contains a brief introduction to computers and a concise
practical guide to the essential parts of Microsoft Office. It includes
detailed instructions for the most recent versions of Office, but much
of the text should still be relevant for older versions.

Four Office Applications.
The book covers four of the Office applications: Word, Excel,
Access and PowerPoint. The applications need not be read sequentially,
since each application is covered independently. It is necessary
however, to read the chapters for each application in sequence.
The aim of the book is to leave the reader in a position where
they are familiar with the fundamentals of each application and
confident enough to use the on-line Help facility for any specialist
problems. It can be used either as a course text or for self-paced
learning by the home user or professional.
Each chapter of the book contains step-by-step instructions to
take the reader through a series of connected tasks. Further exercises
are included at the end of each chapter so that the skills learned
in the main part of the chapter can be consolidated. This structure
is particularly useful in large laboratory sessions, since it
allows students to work at their own pace: faster students can
move onto the extra exercises when they have finished the main
body of the chapter. Each chapter is also interspersed with a
number of short-answer ques-tions to ensure that students work
through the text thoroughly. It has been found in practice that
each chapter takes approximately two hours, depending on the level
of experience of the reader.
It is recommended that people who have no previous experience
of computers use this book by first reading the introduction in
Chapter 1, and then proceed to the application they are interested
in: Word, Excel, Access or PowerPoint.
