This has been an excellent teaching tool for our Workforce Development Academy. Very user friendly, especially for students new to the computer. I do agree with the review regarding periods at the end of an instruction and the Calibri verses the Times New Roman font. New students are very literal and often try to force their documents to look exactly like the book. I explain to them that this is not necessary. Just let the text wrap!!

For an "essentials" course, there are too many errors. As beginners take things very literally, even such things as including a period at the end of a sentence when the sentence states something like, "type the following title: Computer Technology." can throw a beginner off. This is especially confusing if the bold has been carried on to the punctuation.
Closer proof reading prior to publishing would be advised when updating a text from a previous text using the same lessons, someone should monitor for changes that may no longer be applicable with the new version of the application, such as the new default font of Calibri 11 versus the previous default of Times New Roman 12, makes a difference as to where the text wrap occurs. This can really through a beginner off.
