Using SAM Projects SAM Projects is live-in-the-application grading software that lets you complete projects in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 and have them graded instantly. This is a huge benefit to you because you can complete your SAM Projects homework, submit it to the SAM Projects site, and instantly receive a detailed report stating what you did correctly and where you made mistakes. There are 12 SAM Projects that practice the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint skills presented in the units in this book. These SAM Projects are nearly identi- cal to the Independent Challenge 1 exercises in these units with a few small changes (which are necessitated by the software). Note that you can only use SAM Projects if you purchased a SAM Projects access code with your textbook. This bonus section includes the exact instructions for each of the SAM Projects for the Word, Excel and PowerPoint units in this book. The first four lessons cover some basic tasks you need to per- form to get started with SAM Projects.
