Immediate Start Up
Windows starts on the first page of the first chapter. (For those courses that require it, the Introduction provides general information about personal computers).

Notes and Tips
Both appear frequently in the text and embellish upon a topic, uncovering a particular aspect or feature. Especially important for students who already know Windows 9.x.

Chapter Exercises
Learning Windows 2000 is not a spectator sport! Exercises reinforcing the concepts appear throughout each chapter.

  • Review Exercises utilize True/False, Multiple Choice, and completion sections to test student's knowledge of the information presented in the chapter. The page number is listed with each question to enable the student to quickly find the section for reference. Great for self study labs
  • Each chapter contains a Glossary Activity. The student defines important terms presented in the chapter in their own words. Glossary terms are bold within the chapter text. Great for self study labs
  • Lab Exercises ask students to perform the kinds of tasks they will encounter when using Windows on an everyday basis. Great for directed labs
Case Studies
Three short projects the students can perform using the skills presented in the chapter. These projects usually push the learner a bit more than a lab exercise and foster independent thought.

On the Certification Track
For students interested in pursuing Microsoft Certification; each section presents a project that leads students into research about a topic or the certification process itself. Additionally, each chapter's overview lists topics within the chapter that are requirements for certification, or that are prerequisites for certification study.
