Each unit focuses on one of seven occupational fields: mail clerk, proofreader, clerk-typist, secretary, bookkeeper, office manager, and word processor. Contained in each unit is a statement of objectives, suggested activities for instructor and student, information sheets, assignment and job sheets, transparency masters, and a unit test with answer key. The appendices contain a matrix of common metric multiples and submultiples, a list of common terms and definitions, and brief descriptions of the seven occupational areas.
