Editorial Reviews

Review

"I really like the organization and the content of the material in the advanced chapters. It is organized in a way that is conducive to the way I teach the course. I love the content and I really enjoy this author's writing style."

" The content is conducive to the way the course is and should be taught. I particularly like the incorporation of the Ethics question at the end each chapter. The Test Your Knowledge and Key Terms section is a great tool for helping the students study for exams. The author also does a good job with the hands-on exercises sections by including introduction lessons and lessons for different skill levels. The textbook is a valuable guide in assisting students to learn the software available to and used by many legal organizations."

"The material teaches students the importance of technology in the legal field and how to incorporate it into their daily work life. Over the past 3 years, I have enjoyed teaching the class using the prior version of this text. Students have also commented on how much they learned and how it has helped them in their jobs."

"The hands-on exercises are what the real asset of the text is. Very detailed yet easily followed. You can only really learn by doing--so the hands-on is the real asset!"

I spent too much money to have to go thru this!

Don't waste your money buying this book new, find a new copy or rent it from your school. If you are able to log onto a computer and shop on Amazon online, you are more technologically advanced than this book. Software is designed to be user friendly, so you really shouldn't need a lot of help with most of the programs out there.

I was forced to buy this book for my paralegal program, and I feel robbed.

I'm sorry that I describe this book as "absolute crap," but it really is. If you have never used a computer before, then this book will probably help you out (but so will the instruction manual for the computer program you are trying to learn, those "Computers for Dummies" books, and YouTube, and you will spend a hell of a lot less money). Otherwise, it is an abomination that such a book can exist, be published by a reputable legal resource publishing company, and be sold to the public for nearly $200.00.

If you are buying this book for class (like I was forced to), do yourself a favor and buy a used copy. However, if you are buying this to improve your ability to use computers in the legal workplace, you don't need this book.

I wish that I could obtain the cd with the ebook or kindle version and/or with used version since I usually buy used books, but in this case, I had to get the new version. I also wish this edition included instructions for Microsoft 2010 instead od instructions users to use 2007 instruactions. The functions are slightly different from the two versions, and takes me a tad bit longer to follow the directions.

Other than that, the book and cd are very useful, and hope to make an 'A' in the class!

I ordered this textbook for school, the ad said 'Textbook and Workbook', when I received the box in the mail only the textbook was in the box. I have been trying for the last 2 wks to get a new textbook for this class that is now 5 weeks into the session. I wasted 2 weeks.

This book is useless other than a very expensive paperweight. Many of the instructions and exercises are not step by step accurate and they only work if you have Windows 2008

This book is the worst. The access code was necessary for the course I was taking, the textbook was just common sense and vocabulary and the workbook exercises were time consuming and completely useless. I had to spend the $$ for this book brand new in order to pass my class but if there is any way around it, don't!! Also, I just tried to sell it back and none if the usual text book buy back sites will even accept it. Such a waste!

for a class and it did NOT come with the disk it was supposed to come with. Also, the lessons are confusing to follow, the print too small and jumbled up together. Im glad I did not buy it.

Don't waste your money on this book . There are two parts , the textbook and the workbook . I was only sent the workbook which doesn't help you in anyway without the text itself . Not happy with my purchase . I would give it negative stars if I could.
