CS 101 Information
There is an official special edition book for the class. The book will follow the class very closely. You can buy the book in separate components if you want. These are the editions you will need: "Discovering Computer Fundamentals", Shelley/Vermaat, © 2012, ISBN-10: 1-1115-3032-7, Course Technology, Cengage Learning & "Microsoft ® Excel ® 2010 Introductory", Shelley/Quasney, © 2011, ISBN-10: 0-5387-5005-7, Course Technology, Cengage Learning. I don't know whether other editions of either book will work. Also, you will need the book to complete the second assignment by the end of the second week of class. NOTE: There is an error in the class schedule. There is NO orientation for this class.


The classes and their waitlists are dynamic. That is, they can change. Therefore, you should check them periodically to see if you could add in. If the class and waitlist remain filled then you must show up, in class, on the first day of class. If it is an online only class then please send me an email.
