This manual is intended to provide educators with information and guidelines for locating, selecting, and purchasing commercially available courseware for the Apple II microcomputer. A courseware index is provided which lists programs in broad subject areas and grade levels. Information given for each program includes its DOS, language, cost, publisher, and distributor, as well as a short description. This index can be used to locate commercially available programs in a particular subject area and for a specific grade level. Catalogs from 63 publishers and producers of microcomputer courseware are included, as well as an alphabetized list of the addresses of more than 200 publishers, distributors, and manufacturers of computer products. An annotated bibliography of microcomputer journals, magazines, and newsletters provides descriptions of the publications, the addresses and yearly subscription rates, and comments on the general usefulness of the publications. A list of selected compatible accessories and expansion options for the Apple II is also provided. (Author/LLS)
