Prentice Hall's MOUS Essentials were created specifically to meet the required guidelines established by Microsoft for the Microsoft Office User Specialist exams. The authors follow the proven approach of Prentice Hall's Essentials series with an emphasis on step-by-step tutorials with large screen shots, outstanding student pedagogy, and plenty of exercises. This text also includes a number of elements designed to help students study for the MOUS exams. As an additional test preparation tool, the series also includes live computer-based training and assessment with the MOUS Kelly PinPoint CD-ROM. ALL MOUS Essentials books are certified to the Expert Level by Microsoft as approved test preparation guides for the MOUS exams. A unique appendix entitled "Preparing for MOUS Certification" provides information like how to register, what is covered in the tests, how the tests work, and levels of certification. Each Project opens with "Required Activities" for both levels of the exam objectives. These activities are indicated throughout the Projects by icons distinguishing core vs. expert objectives. "Exam Notes" and "Inside Stuff" sidebars provide students with extra tips and tricks on preparing for and taking the MOUS exams. "MOUS PinPoint" software provides computer-based training and assessment tools for students to complete the projects and practice for the MOUS exams. MOUS PinPoint includes "Project Review Tests" along with "Show Me" training for each MOUS Exam Skill Set covered within the Project. In addition, each MOUS PinPoint has a capstone final exam that mirrors the actual MOUS exams. Instructor's resources include the Instructor's Resource CD-ROM and Companion Web site. The IRCD contains Instructor's Manuals, PowerPoints, Test Manager, Student Data Files, and Solutions Files for all four applications.
The Instructor's Manuals, PowerPoints, Data Files, and additional questions can also be downloaded from the Web site at www.prenhall.com/mousessentials.show more
