Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

How well do you know Microsoft Office? Many students can follow specific step-by-step directions to re-create a document, spreadsheet, presentation, or database, but do they truly understand the skills it takes to create these on their own? Just as simply following a recipe does not make you a professional chef, re-creating a project step by step does not make you an Office expert. 

The purpose of this book is to teach you the skills to master Microsoft Office 365 in a straightforward and easy-to-follow manner. But Microsoft® Office 365: A Skills Approach goes beyond the how and equips you with a deeper understanding of the what and the why. Too many times books have little value beyond the classroom. The Skills Approach series has been designed to be not only a complete textbook but also a reference tool for you to use as you move beyond academics and into the workplace
