industry's leading software operating system, word processing
and spreadsheets, offering dozens of tips, techniques and
shortcuts designed to help the average user accomplish routine
work. Another satisfying feature of this revised work is that
it is written in a non-technical style for beginning and
intermediate users. The "Office Companion: Second Edition"
could be a valuable tool as an ongoing guide for increased
productivity.
