"How do I use the list of links to other sites?"
At the end of each week, our Instructor will list a series of links to other sites with additional information. Please remember that when you access one of these sites, you have left the NGA course site. Use your browser's back button or a bookmark to return to the NGA site. 


"How will this course run on my computer?"
This course site has been optimized for Netscape ver. 3 and newer and Microsoft Internet Explorer ver. 3 and newer. Page appearance may vary if you use other browsers or earlier versions.

Monitor settings: Your monitor should support at least 256 colors and a screen resolution of 640 x 480. Note that most browsers allow you to control the size of the font displayed on your screen. You may choose to increase or decrease the font size, depending on your screen resolution.

Speed: Although we have made every attempt to minimize page size and thus download time, the download speed on your computer will also be affected by the speed of your modem, your local telephone lines and the time of day. 

Printing: You may print any of these course pages, but keep in mind that they have been designed for viewing on a computer screen, and the printed pages may not necessarily look the same as on your screen.


"What if I still have questions?"
