This lab module offers brief, hands-on introductory coverage of the Microsoft Works 3.0 software. Microsoft Works is an integrated word-processing, spreadsheet and database software application all in one package. The objectives listed at the beginning of each lab module explain the concepts, commands and competencies to be gained in each software application program. The Sports Club case-study places real-world business problems within the context of a health-club business environment. Students solve the business problems by using application software, such as word-processing, spreadsheet and database software. Lab activities consist of detailed, step-by-step instructions and screen displays to aid students in solving the case-study problems. Each lab lesson builds on the previous lesson while the number of screen displays decrease and the instructions become less specific so that students think about what they have learned, avoid rote learning and become proficient in the concepts and commands presented.
