About the Product

Praised by instructors for its concise, focused approach and user-friendly format, the Illustrated Series engages both computer rookies and hot shots in mastering Microsoft Publisher 2013 quickly and efficiently. Skills are accessible and easy-to-follow thanks to the Illustrated Series' hallmark 2-page layout, which allows students to see an entire task in one view. New Learning Outcomes outline the skills covered in each lesson, and larger full-color screens represent exactly what students should see on their own computers. Each unit begins with a brief overview of the principles of the lesson, and introduces a case study for further application.


  • Helps students of all levels learn essential skills for using Microsoft Publisher 2013.

  • Unique 2-page spread keeps learners of all levels engaged and on track by presenting an entire task in a single view.

  • Predicts commonly made mistakes and offers "Quick Tips" and "Troubles" within the step-by-step directions to help students avoid typical errors and pitfalls.

  • Makes concepts relevant with end-of-chapter Independent Challenges and Visual Workshops.

  • Serves as a great reference both during and after the course.


"Very user-friendly for students. Good graphics and activities. Provides the concepts in a way students understand."
— Deborah Peairs, Clark State Community College
