An Easier Way To Learn How To Operate A Computer
Information Communication Technology
You just can't ignore technology, it's everywhere. What's more, it's moving forward at an
alarming rate. Mobile phones and WAP technology will likely dominate the communications
industry within the next 24 months. The Internet is currently being accessed by over 270 million
users worldwide and is an absolute oracle of information. E-mail is fast replacing traditional means
of written correspondence and…..well it just goes on and on. Digital TV, DVD, MP3 and a myriad
of computer software and games that leaves us spellbound!
Does it all go straight over your head? If it does, don't worry, you're not alone. Think back
to when you first bought that video recorder. How easy was it to 'set it up' or 'tune it in'? There are
probably many thousands of people that still haven't managed this simple task. But you know, with
a little practice and once you've got the hang of it, using products of modern technology can be
very interesting, educational and a usually lot of fun. Ask any kid!
Above all, there's one very important product of modern technology that we have come to
rely on totally. The computer. Without computers, very few businesses today could survive in this
technological age and that's a fact! Now the personal computer has found its way into millions of
homes all around the world…why? Well there are many reasons. Here are just a few:
Writing letters. This letter you're reading was created using the Microsoft Word processor.
Creating Spreadsheets. Many households budget their income to meet their outgoings. Producing a
spreadsheet can help with your financial planning, whether business or personal.
Creating a Database. In simple terms, the modern equivalent to the address book. Store and
quickly access information on friends, family, hobbies and just about anything else.
Desktop publishing. Create letterheads, business cards, greeting cards, newsletters, posters and
any fancy artwork you care to think of. And all by simply pressing a few keys.
Internet access. Log on and find free information on just about any subject of interest. Go
shopping for the best bargains and save a fortune. Meet people and make new friends through the
multitude of chat rooms. You could even build your own web site.
E-mail. Send and receive messages, send electronic greeting cards or even photographs to friends
and family anytime, anywhere in the world.
With little effort I could easily list a multitude of reasons why ordinary people use
computers in the home. The majority of us that use PC's regularly just couldn't live without them,
right? Okay, now let me ask you a simple question. What does the PC, unlike any other product of
technology, offer the ordinary man or woman?
That's right! Anyone with access to a computer, regardless of age, sex, origin and
background has an equal opportunity….. to better themselves. How? Well anyone with a computer
can make extra money! How? By starting a home-based business. Perhaps writing newsletters or
manuals, set up a web site and sell products on the Internet, or, and this is one of my favourite
pastimes, become an expert in Information Technology. You can teach yourself, and then teach
But doesn't that mean signing up for an expensive course at my local college or training
centre? NO! Wouldn't it take months of attending evening classes twice a week? NO! Well I might
be a bit slow and may need some personal tuition. NO PROBLEM! Any more excuses?
Do you already consider yourself to be a 'PC expert'? Do you have any I.T qualifications to
back it up? Would an I.T qualification be useful in your present job or career? Would an I.T
qualification help you to get a better job? Yes! It certainly would. Employers are always looking
for people with proven I.T experience, even if it isn't a requirement for the job. Why? Because in
this modern world, computer literacy is considered an essential skill. It's as fundamental as reading
and writing, and it proves that you have the ability to learn, understand and utilise this new
technology. From a Personnel Manager's point of view, it says a lot about you.
Your Questions Answered
Could a PC training manual help change your life in some way? Give you a purpose, a
goal? Or could it give you the reason you need to make this year different from all the rest?
Take a good look at the list of questions and answers below. These are the kind of questions
I've already been asked by people that have expressed an interest in this guide:
1. What exactly is this new book about?
It's a PC guide written in the form of a simple tutorial. It explains in detail, how to operate a
computer. From exploring the keyboard, it then progresses through the main applications such as,
Word Processing and Mail Merge, Excel Spreadsheets, Access Database, the Internet and E-mail.
Plus there are tons of keyboard shortcuts to help speed up actions and commands.
2. Will I be able to understand all the technical jargon?
No, because there isn't any. It's been written in a way that easily explains, step by step, everything
you need to know. It's almost like having a personal tutor beside you, guiding you through the
exercises. If there was anything that you weren't quite sure of, you have only to contact the
publisher in writing, or for a quick response, send an e-mail to email@example.com
3. Who is the book intended for?
Anyone and everyone. If you have no PC experience whatsoever, it's what you need to get started.
If you're self-taught, it will help you advance your knowledge by showing you how to do things the
right way and probably teach you a few things you didn't know. If you've recently attended a
beginner's course, it will become your reference guide. If you're considering gaining a
qualification, it covers the basics in detail and will prepare you for the exam or assessment.
4. What I.T. qualification will it prepare me for?
It's been written by a professionally qualified I.T. tutor and covers all aspects of the CLAIT course
(Computer Literacy And Information Technology.) It is in fact a complete course in itself. Once
you've worked through the exercises and consider yourself proficient, you could book a session at
any local college or training centre, that offers the CLAIT qualification, and ask to take the exam.
You wouldn't need any further training. It would also provide grounding in preparation for more
advanced qualifications, such as ECDL, IBT and City & Guilds.
5. Is CLAIT a nationally recognised qualification?
Yes. CLAIT is a genuine Stage 1 qualification. The assignments are set by the OCR (Oxford,
Cambridge & RSA) board of examinations.
6. I don't really need an I.T. qualification so how will it help me?
You may not need a qualification but the tutorial and exercises will certainly help you to become
proficient in the main Microsoft Office applications. You'll also learn how to surf the Internet and
open an e-mail account and how else could you learn all the keyboard shortcuts? If you use a
computer for business or pleasure, it will help you.
7. How long does it take to work through this guide?
That's entirely up to you. You just work at your own pace, as and when you like. It's not a
correspondence course so there's no waiting for the next lesson to arrive and there's no paperwork
to send off. Judging by previous student’s efforts, if you already have some computer experience it
should take about 10 - 12 hours to master the contents of this book. If you're an absolute novice
then it would normally take a maximum of 30 hours to complete.
8. How much does this guide cost and is there any guarantee?
This unique guide was released in Jan 2001 and is only available by mail order, so you would never
be able to buy it from a shop. It's priced at £19.95 including postage, packing and insurance and is
usually despatched on the same day the order has been received. It represents amazing value when
you consider the total cost of attending a part-time course. We also offer a 30-day, no quibble,
money back guarantee. (If used for business, the cost is fully tax deductible)
9. What if I don't have a computer and have no intention of getting one?
Well, if you don't have a PC of your own and don't have access to a one at work, can't use a
friend's or relative's, don't have a library or Internet café near you and will never, ever consider
buying or using a PC, you could pass this on to a friend or relative.
Information & Education = Knowledge = Wealth
Most people I know, that are well informed or had the benefit of a good education, hold
secure and well paid jobs. Some of them run their own very profitable businesses. But all have one
thing in common. They never stop learning. Knowledge is the key to their success. It's what they
know that got them where they are today.
Three years ago, a close friend, who for 17 years had been working in the engineering
industry, was made redundant. At 43 years old and with no hope of finding a similar job, he
realised that he would have to re-train for a new career. He signed on a Professional I.T course and
is now a web site designer, earning almost 5 times the salary he received from his old job!
I'm not suggesting that you should do this, although you could, if you really wanted to. It
just goes to show what can be done with a little determination. Information that educates becomes
knowledge and knowledge is power. But everyone has to start somewhere, right?
Don't get left behind, make that vital decision now. Start today! Begin learning as much as
you can about Information Technology and it'll change your life forever. Complete the order form
and send for your copy of 'Click Here' and who knows what you could be doing in the near future.
My very best regards,
P.S. Remember! You have a 30 day no quibble money back guarantee. If you should decide that
this manual is not for you, simply return it for a prompt refund. What have you got to lose?
