Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and enjoyed the few days off.  Now.. back to Lynda.com lessons.  Only three weeks though until Christmas break!  Email me your goals for the week.  If you don’t know what to work on, please ask me.

Brainbench exams will be included in your semester grade.  First year students must take the Computer Fundamentals (Win 7), Computer Fundamentals (Mac OS X 10.4), and Computer Literacy (Windows 7) exams this first semester.  A 2.75 is a passing score.  Even if you do not pass, the highest score from the semester will be used to calculate the grade for that exam.  The grading scale is available under the Links menu (bottom option) of my blog.  The brainbench exams for second year students depend upon their chosen career major.  I have emailed you individually if you still need to take Brainbench exams before the end of the semester.  If you have questions, please ask.

Congratulations to Matt for passing the Brainbench CSS3 exam!

Congratulations to the Cherokee Chiefs for their big win!
