I love the fact that the text book is geared to both Windows 7 users and Windows 8.1 users. The book covers Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access. There are lots of instructor resources. This is an excellent instruction manual for any MS Office class.

As always, great resource from Labyrinth. Comprehensive and challenging, yet students are still able to work through at their own pace in such a classroom environment.
