Welcome to the Microsoft Official Academic Course (MOAC) program for the 2007 Microsoft
Office system. MOAC represents the collaboration between Microsoft Learning and John
Wiley & Sons, Inc. publishing company. Microsoft and Wiley teamed up to produce a series of
textbooks that deliver compelling and innovative teaching solutions to instructors and superior
learning experiences for students. Infused and informed by in-depth knowledge from the creators
of Microsoft Office and Windows Vista™, and crafted by a publisher known worldwide
for the pedagogical quality of its products, these textbooks maximize skills transfer in minimum
time. With MOAC, students are hands on right away—there are no superfluous text passages
to get in the way of learning and using the software. Students are challenged to reach their
potential by using their new technical skills as highly productive members of the workforce.
Because this knowledge base comes directly from Microsoft, architect of the 2007 Office system
and creator of the Microsoft Certified Application Specialist (MCAS) exams, you are sure
to receive the topical coverage that is most relevant to students’ personal and professional success.
Microsoft’s direct participation not only assures you that MOAC textbook content is accurate
and current; it also means that students will receive the best instruction possible to enable
their success on certification exams and in the workplace.
