A project-based tutorial that agives the reader the practical skills they need to immediately use the software at home or in the workplace. The writing style is personal, friendly, and easily understood, helping new users to overcome their fear of computers. Completed tasks produce spectacular results in a short time for immmediate rewards.-- Easily-referenced, real world applications examples that people can relate to.-- Examples of the finished project at the beginning of each chapter helps the user visualize their goal in a step by step manner, increasing user confidence every step of the way.-- Accurate, relevant, precise and concise information..-- How to Make the Project Great information lets users add polish and a professional touch to the final product.-- Provides a memory jogger section that gives summaries of the commands used in the lessons.-- Provides troubleshooting advice for those who may find themselves lost from time to time.-- Adds "Other Useful Stuff" that users may want to know, but don't need to know to complete the chapters.Until now, computer books have provided users with lessons on how to use the features of a software application. The person learns to make words bold, insert columns, center a title, but can he/she construct a newsletter? Produce a business letter or resume? The answer is no. Traditional computer books reach only the features of the software, not how to put those features together and create something.In direct contrast to the traditional approach, Que's By Example series shows the user how to put those features together and begin creating something of value. Whether the application is a spreadsheet, wordprocessor, database or desktop publisher, the theme is the same. Each chapter provides a logical, concrete project to do. The projects are simple, recognizable scenarios easily understood by everyone. Even non-computer users can produce immediate, successful results. Screenshots are provided every place they are needed for a foolproof step-by-step guide to success. Superfluous information has been stripped out -- we provide only the necessary data that the user needs to accomplish the task.
