NEW PERSPECTIVES ON MICROSOFT WINDOWS 8 takes a critical-thinking approach to teaching Windows 8 concepts and skills. In addition to in-depth coverage of essential topics, this book also covers some of the coolest new features to the Windows Operating System including Apps, the Charms Bar, mobile computing, and touch screen capabilities.

ProSkill Boxes and Exercises provide students with information and practice on Professional Skills that relate to that tutorial’s content. Troubleshoot Exercises provide an opportunity for students to apply their skills in a critical thinking setting.
