Having sold over one million copies worldwide since it was first published, Secretarial Duties is well-established as a combined textbook and workbook which covers everything the secretary needs to know. The tenth edition has been completely revised using a new format and layout, and updated to take account of the new NVQ specification, and LCCI and PEI syllabi. It also focuses on the increasing role now played by computer technology in business adminisration. Recent advances in areas such as data storage and retrieval, the internet, speech recognition, automatic call distribution systems, video phones and desktop publishing are all covered.

A wide range of in-tray exercises based on realistic case studies are provided at the end of each unit using examples of real forms and other business documents. In working through these realistic simulated business activities, the student is required not only to apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations, but is also encouraged to develop NVQ and GNVQ standards of competence. Further practice is provided with recent examination questions from LCCI and PEI examinations.

The inclusion of a list of worldwide Chambers of Commerce and forms of address for letters to Europe provides a good reference source for those studying or working overseas.

The shipping was just superior

The shipping was just superior; not even one of the books was in contact with the shipping box -anywhere-, not even a corner or the bottom, so all the books arrived in perfect condition. The international shipping took around 2 weeks, so pretty great too.

Found a hard to get book…

Finding a hard to get book on Booksplease and with it not being an over inflated price was great. Ordering was really easy with updates on despatch. The book was packaged well and in great condition. I will certainly use them again.
