For introductory courses in computer concepts or computer literacy often including instruction in Microsoft Office.


Engages students with a refreshing and easy to learn from style, while maintaining an encyclopedic approach and popular magazine-style format.

Today’s students want a practical “what it is” and “how it works” approach to computers and computing, with less explanation of “when and why.” Computers Are Your Future serves as a valuable computer technology reference tool without being overwhelming or intimidating.
