  1. 5 out of 5

    This is an extraordinarily well-organized and concise computer book! While it is designed for beginning English speakers I use it in both my ESL and Adult Literacy classes. The step-by-step instructions (accompanied by pictures and simple diagrams) are easy for learners to follow meaning that learners are given the opportunity to master skills slowly while gaining a sense of empowerment! Also, because the book is so comprehensive and well laid out (and also comes with a free teachers guide online!), I don’t need to spend a lot of time planning for my Basic Computer Literacy class. This book forms the base of my class — I don’t know what I’d do without it!
