The amount of material covered in class is quite vast (see outline below). It's therefore required that students are comfortable using a mouse, opening/ saving files and with the general operation of computers. While we will make every reasonable effort to help, students with insufficient skills still wanting to take this course should first consider undertaking an IT skills course so as to not slow down the rest of the class.
