Help your students master the keyboarding and formatting skills most important for career success! The Eighteenth Edition of KEYBOARDING AND WORD PROCESSING ESSENTIALS, LESSONS 1-55 uses proven techniques to guide students from initial new-key learning to confident expertise in formatting business documents with Microsoft® Word 2010. South-Western College Keyboarding offers a time-tested pedagogy that helps students develop a strong foundation in basic keyboarding, steadily improve their skills and rapidly become proficient in document formatting and business communication. Each lesson is clearly focused, well structured, and designed to provide step-by-step training and reinforcement to help students quickly acquire and apply new skills. Based on customer feedback, this semester-based text includes 55 lessons in a one-book solution that includes both documents and instructions for using keyboarding software (sold separately) within a space-saving easel-back format. Lessons 1-25 concentrate on building fundamental keyboarding skills by mastering the alphabetic keyboard, top-row numbers, and symbols. Lessons 26-55 teach the basics of document formats and word processing, including block and modified block letters, memos, tables, and graphics. A separate, second-semester text is available with Lessons 56-110, and a single-volume complete course text includes both semesters, plus a set of supplemental lessons related to Microsoft Office Specialist certification.
