Method of Presentation
Students will learn by doing. The ‘doing’ is backed up by demonstrating. We are using a textbook that is
mandatory for the lab work and a great reference book for your future use of each application. You are
encouraged to learn how to work through the text material in an effective manner.
Each week labs will have class discussion and exercises that are to be completed and emailed to me by end
of class. Work sent outside of the lab period will not be marked unless prior arrangements have been made.
A case study and pertinent data files will be used for both Microsoft Word and PowerPoint 2007. The case study
and data files will provide a variety of relevant business applications. Required textbook purchased as a bundle of 3
