Good Morning my excellent students.


For today's lesson, you will concentrate on completing Practice Test 1.

Things you need to know about Practice Test 1:

o There is a lesson you will need to complete before you can finish Practice Test 1 (oops!).

o This is lesson located at K:\Intro Class\Lessons\Create 3 files

o There are two basic components in Practice Test 1:
  -The written part you can do at home
  -The demonstration part on Windows, which you must do in front of your teacher. (You can practice with a friend, or ask to watch someone else be tested on Windows)

o When you are ready to do the Windows demonstration part, you must have all the applications open listed in Part 9. I do not need to watch you open these applications.

o When you have completed Practice Test 1, tell Ms. McKenna, and then so that she can check the written parts for you before you take Test 1.
