What are some recommended specs?"; "Should I buy a laptop or a desktop computer? What about a PDA or handheld?"; "Should I buy my technology from my college or university? Should I buy it before arriving on campus?"; "What about security?"; "What software will I need for college?"; "What should I know about Email?"; "What should I know how to do on my computer BEFORE my courses begin?"; "Where can I find help when I'm having trouble with my computer?"; " What should I do if my computer or printer is not working as an assignment is due?" Troubleshooting tips, a technology packing checklist, and a form for filling in necessary names and numbers are provided at the end of the booklet. (AEF)
