This is the perfect book to introduce beginners to Microsoft Word. It provides the proper groundwork to move to Level 2. I use this for all of my beginner classes.

We are going to use this text fall quarter. We are happy to see the videos, quizzes, and layout of the text. I would like to see an Appendix of document formats though.

Loved using the videos and having my ABE students follow step by step. Great supporting materials, too. Most likely will use the Excel book for next semester, too.

We recently made the transition to the Labyrinth Microsoft 2013 series with eLab. The transition has been made very easy with the help from the Labyrinth Staff. The students have adapted to the new system with very little difficulty. Students really like the videos and the ease of learning this provides. As an instructor I can see my students work as the progress in eLab and print the gradebook page as my documentation of course completion. I am only beginning to discover all the features of eLab, but quickly learned enough to get started. We look forward to adding additional courses in the future.
