This is only a guide.  Dates and content subject to change based on class needs.

Complete all steps in each project other than Print. Please omit all Print instructions. As you complete the steps in the project, you will create files with specific names per the project instructions. Save each assignment as an eight character file name by combining your last name, plus your first name, plus the 2 digit assignment number above.  Keep the extension added by the program (.docx or .xlsx or .aacdb or .pptx).  Please, no spaces or additional characters.  Copy this file to the homework folder.  DATA FILES NEEDED: You may need data files this semester.  These will be provided.

NOTE: All assignments are due upon completion. Please do not wait until the end of the semester to copy all your files.  You run the risk of losing your disk.  Please do not erase your assignments off your disk until the end of the term.  Since a disk can crash, it is very important that we keep at least two copies of every homework assignment file.  I'll have a copy and you will have at least one copy - it is wise to keep a backup just in case.   See class schedule for the LAST DAY TO TURN in homework.
