Concerned about its durability in the classroom. More hands on student projects would be helpful

I think some of the assignments are too short, and I would have liked a few more assignments. Other than that it's a great book. Concise, to the point, not a lot of distracting boxes and pull outs. I am using it in a course where there students have only 8 hours of instruction and limited PC access of class.

This was ok, but not the most interesting textbook I've read on this topic. I would personally need quite a bit of supplementary material to use this in my class.

This is an excellent introduction to Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access. It is not comprehensive which is actually a positive, since it does not intimidate my students who have little or no knowledge of the software.
