Wang Word Processing

The purpose of this course is to enable the students to perform the most essential word processing functions quickly and easily, to ensure immediate productivity, and to set up a word processing project most effectively. CIC has isolated the "Big Ten" functions of word processing--based on experience with hundreds of features in scores of word processors--those ten most important skills someone must know in order to complete a word processing task, from start-up through editing to printing. Participants do enjoyable and educational hands-on exercises to practice the "Big Ten" functions to ensure immediate productivity. Other functions can be demonstrated depending on the students' particular needs and skills. More than 70% of this course is hands-on use of Wang.

After completing this course, a participant will be able to:

* Perform the "Big Ten" basic functions for normal use including:

calling up a document, inserting, deleting, paragraph formatting,

emphasizing words, quick cursor movement, manipulating blocks,

searching and replacing, printing, saving and exiting;

* Know how to get "help" from Wang, and how to learn more advanced

functions and features;

* understand the advantages of word processing while gain proficiency

in editing, organizing and managing documents on Wang;

* use the keyboard with basic cursor movements and understand

Target Audience: This course is useful for professional, managerial and administrative personnel. It is particularly useful for persons making the transition from dedicated word processing to microcomputers. Familiarity with the basics of microcomputer use is not required.
