Lesson 1: Introduction to MS Excel 2016

Excel can be used for a wide variety of purposes such as creating an address book, grocery lists, tracking expenses, creating invoices and bills, accounting, balance checkbooks and other financial accounts, as well as any other purpose that requires a spreadsheet or table.

  • Lesson 2: Navigating Excel 2016

    In this lesson, we’re going to focus on the major elements of Excel 2016 and take a few minutes to become familiar with their purpose.

  • Lesson 3: Worksheets and Workbooks

    Worksheets are stored in workbooks, and workbooks are the files that you actually save.

  • Lesson 4: Entering Information into MS Excel 2016

    Starting to enter information is as simple as clicking on a cell in the spreadsheet and typing, but there are some things that are helpful to know – and that you can do – before you ever type that first letter or number.

  • Lesson 5: Introduction to Working with Cells, Rows, and Columns

    If you want to move data from its original location and relocate it somewhere else, you must cut the data, then paste it somewhere else. You can cut or copy cells, rows, columns, or entire worksheets.

  • Lesson 6: Formatting Data and Cells

    Taking the time to format a worksheet can take it from the black and white page of data and gridlines to something that looks professional and attractive.

  • Lesson 7: Formatting Rows and Columns

    In Excel 2016, the width of a column is determined by how many characters that can be displayed within a cell.

  • Lesson 8: Editing Cells, Rows, Columns, and Worksheets

    Excel 2016 makes creating – and editing – spreadsheets a lot easier because correcting errors is easy mess free.

  • Lesson 9: Introduction to Formulas and Calculations

    If you use spreadsheets to do accounting for a business, track totals, invoice customers, or anything that requires mathematics, Excel’s ability to calculate formulas is going to save you errors and headaches.

  • Lesson 10: Working with Formulas and Functions

    In Excel, a function is a predesigned formula that does a certain calculation. This can make it easier because you don’t have to construct every formula yourself.

  • Lesson 11: Maintaining Worksheets

    It’s important to learn how to maintain your worksheets to help you keep on top of all the information.

  • Lesson 12: The What-If Analysis

    A what-if analysis lets you explore possibilities by entering possible values into the same equation so you can see the possible outcomes in the cells of your spreadsheet.

  • Lesson 13: Adding Images and Graphics

    You’ve already learned how to format a worksheet and enter information into Excel. Now we’re going to show you how to add elements such as graphics and images.

  • Lesson 14: Charts and Diagrams

    Charts and diagrams are tools you can use to visually represent the data in a worksheet.

  • Lesson 15: Creating Data Lists

    A data list or a database table are types of worksheets that aren’t used to calculate values, but to store information, such as names and addresses of clients or perhaps a library of books.

  • Lesson 16: Managing Data

    A form is simply a dialog box that lets you display or enter information one record (or row) at a time. It can also make the information more visually appealing and easier to understand.

  • Lesson 17: Pivot Tables and Pivot Charts

    A pivot table sounds more difficult and confusing than it really is. Most people say they don’t like pivot tables, or they don’t understand them. In truth, they’re not that difficult at all.

  • Lesson 18: Printing Worksheets and Workbooks

    Headers appear at the top of a worksheet. Footers appear at the bottom. Both can contain page numbers, and headers often contain the title of the worksheet and perhaps the date.

  • Lesson 19: Templates

    Templates are worksheets that are already designed for you.

  • Lesson 20: Protecting, Saving, and Sharing Workbooks

    Add protection to worksheets so that they can’t be edited by other people. You can lock cells or an entire worksheet.

    Best Online Colleges For Military – Distance Learning for Active Duty Army

    Online Colleges For Military Students

    You’re serving in the military, and you want to continue your education at an online college.

    Problem: As a military student, you’re facing an unpredictable schedule, at best.

    GetEducated.com surveyed military advisors at online colleges to put together these helpful tips that showcase what to look for in an online college before you enroll.

    Tip 1: Look for online colleges for military students that will be flexible if you are called away

    If you are in the military, you may be deployed without warning. Your online college needs to be sensitive to this issue. Find out in advance what the school’s policy is regarding unpredictable absences and homework delays.

    For instance, at Columbia College (based in Missouri), a military student who didn’t have advance warning and is deployed while taking online college classes can request an incomplete or an excused withdrawal.

    In some cases military students may even be given more time to finish their assignments, says Gary Massey, Associate Dean for Adult Higher Education at Columbia Online.

    “We will deal with things that are out of their control,” says Massey.

    Similarly, military students at Colorado Technical University can expect flexibility from instructors, says Arthur Macias, Senior National Admissions Advisor of the school’s military division.

    If a military student is called away for a few days and can’t get to a computer, “our instructors will let them turn it in later if that’s what they need to do,” says Macias.

    “When dealing with military personnel, you have to realize you’re also dealing with the unexpected,” says Randi Reich Cosentino, senior vice president of academic administration at Strayer University. <>

    Strayer “freezes” courses if military students are deployed or transferred. The students can then resume the course when they are able to, without having to start the course over again.

    “This gives them peace of mind,” Cosentino says, “so personnel don’t hesitate in signing up for courses.”

    Tip 2: Make sure your online course doesn’t require “real time” participation

    Flexible scheduling is key for a military student enrolled in online college classes. Be wary of classes with live lectures and “synchronous” or real-time discussions, especially if you are in another time zone, halfway around the world.

    Some schools offer live lectures—but also provide downloadable versions for students who can’t make it. This is the case with Colorado Technical.

    “We archive lectures for all students,” says Macias.

    Tip 3: Look for an online military college that offers easy, 24/7 access to information

    Depending on where you are stationed, you might not have access to a computer. You also might not be able to phone the United States, especially if a school’s customer service lines operate only on a 9 to 5, U.S. schedule.

    These days many online education schools offer the ability to use cellphones to download class material, check assignments, message instructors, and receive grades.

    For example, says Macias, Colorado Technical offers “CTU Mobile” —a cellphone interface that allows easy access to information about a student’s academic work.

    Many online colleges staff military bases with representatives so military students can easily access a real live human being if they encounter concerns about program access.

    Others, such as Colorado Technical, offer round-the-clock phone support with financial aid and admissions advisors, as well as web chat functionality.

    Tip 4: See if your college offers downloadable e-books or CD-ROMs, which will save you from having to tote heavy books from unit to unit

    Macias says military students ask: ‘’We already have 50 pounds of life supplies in the field; if I’m moving from one unit to another, what do I do?'”

    CTU ships books through military post five weeks before classes start, says Macias. Undergraduate and associate degree students are provided with e-books, but graduate students are issued copies digitally and in hardcover (when they are able to receive them).

    Strayer offers a majority of its books as e-books, says Reich, with chapters available online. Military Students primarily use laptops to access these texts. “We do make some lectures downloadable to the iPhone, but it’s not a large contingent,” says Cosentino.

    Excelsior College, on the other hand, offers CD-ROM-based courses. “They were designed for the military and they work very well for servicemembers who were deployed and don’t have Internet connections,” says Sue Dewan, executive director of the Center for Military Education at Excelsior.

    Some students prefer “real” books, especially older students. American Military University mails textbooks to deployed online students, says Jim Sweizer, vice president of military education.

    “For many years, we did provide textbooks to students and still do for the majority of classes. You get a mix of students—the older ones tend to like the textbooks and the younger ones like the books in electronic fashion.”

    Sweizer worries that students who depend on downloading books electronically might be without texts if they can’t get Internet access. On the other hand, he says, ff the school were to provide pre-loaded handheld devices, it couldn’t put as much information on as it could provide on a website.

    “The amount of coursework that you can insert into these handheld devices is not as tech-savvy as what you can do if it’s in an electronic classroom over the Internet,” he says. Also, course materials on handhelds aren’t interactive, while web courses can offer this functionality—letting online military students feel like they are part of a classroom experience, even when they are in a war zone.

    Keep these tips and check out our other articles below to help you chose the best online college as a military student.

    I have moved 10 times. I have never had a more professional move in the 9 prior to this one.

    Moving in general terms is not a good experience. Terri and Joe, Owners, were so professional and responsive when I called. Chris, Son of Joe & Terri, along with the Team of Ken and his Nephew John performed the move. They covered every piece offumiture then stretch wrapped it to avoid any damages and scratches.

    I am in the Distribution Business and never have I seen one of the Moving Companies perform the move as well as they have. Not only had they pointed out scratches that they thought they may have caused but they were ready to fix the scratches and I had to point out that I caused those myself. They thanked me for my honesty. I thanked them for their honesty and the focus on the job they were doing. The speed in which they performed was unbelievable. It’s obvious to me that these guys take pride in what they do.

    The cost of the move was very reasonable for the service you get. Integrity and Professionalism that was exemplified by the moving Team is a credit to both Joe and Terri.

    I would recommend Movin Murdy to anyone needing to have that Warm and Fuzzy Feeling about moving. My wife was very complimentary. We feel we have just made New Friends

    I was nervous on the moving day, concerned of busting my budget on a houseful of stuff accumulated over the years, and deep down what if some one dillie-dallie and so I watch money burn. These people proved right away how needless (and how small) I was in my worries. They (three movers including driver) were fast, efftcient, showing care and concern for our belongings, and above all showed us they were professionals. The whole move was done under budget and ahead of time. They not only moved all things, they also re-assembled the beds/tables in the new house, all the while being professional, fast, organized, respectful, friendly, and cheerful. Never a second I doubted their honesty or integrity or hardworking. These were nice and professional people. Exactly what one needs on a very stressfu I day, the moving day. If my little review help them growing their business and help someone pick a good mover, the better the world will be.

In addition to using them myself, I have recommended them about six times to different clients of mine and have received nothing but rave reviews. This hands-on family owned business has a strong committment to service and attention to detail. If you care about your furniture,call this company.

    THE BEST MOVERS EVER! – I’ve had some bad experiences with other moving companies in the past. But I have finally found a company that I trust. Movin’ Murdy showed up promptly for my move, and worked fast and hard. All of my items were packed, delivered, and unpacked safely. The movers were fun to be around and very
    –Posted by Tim.

    I just wanted people to know that Movin’ Murdy was easily the best movers I’ve ever worked with. They were by far the most conscientious workers I’ve ever witnessed. Previously, I’ve had movers show up hungover and other times there’s been some no-shows. I was told there would probably be 3 movers coming to load my stuff and I was pleasantly surprised to see 5 on the actual day of the move. They got everything loaded within 2.5 hrs which was far faster than I could have anticipated.

    They are very careful with how they treat your belongings and I was pleased to see that nothing was damaged. I truly believe their key to success is the attitudes of Joe and Terry (owners) which trickle down to everyone else. They do their best to make sure you’re satisfied with every aspect of the move. A couple of days before the actual pickup day, I asked if they could pick up a futon and couch from my parents’ house and they did so without any additional charge! The final price was actually less than the estimate! Finally, I forgot to have the entire first half of the payment available on the pickup date (it was MLK day and the banks were closed) and Joe said to just have it available for the unloading day.

    My move from Homestead to central PA went off without any problems and I already know that I will use them again in the future when I move from my current location.

    Awesome Movin’ Murdy
    Everyone that moved me was excellent — Jay, John and Dan.
    They showed up on time, put down a carpet protector, and worked straight through the move from my second floor condo to my new house 10 miles away. Also, I spoke with Terri (sp) on the phone several times to set up the move and do the paperwork. The guys that moved me knew what they were doing, they didn’t take smoke breaks or anything like that. It was quick, painless, and well under budget. I will definitely recommend them to anyone I know that is moving. I just got Internet back and will be on Twitter to say how great they are. Thanks so much!

    Excellent Service
    The service was excellent! They were very knowledgable and professional. Setting up the move was easy and the crew was fast, courteous, and fun. I would recommend them for any move! This was my first time hiring a company and they made it so easy. They packed up and had me moved into my new place before noon with everything in place. They took very good care of my belongings. After the move, I personally called the owner to report my great service from the crew.

    Surgical Technology

    Coming to Scranton for Fall 2017!

    Lackawanna College’s Surgical Technology Program is designed to be completed over a two-year period with day, evening, and Saturday courses as well as on- and off-campus clinical hours. Each program also includes summer session courses and clinical lab hours.

    Acceptance into Lackawanna College’s Surgical Technology Program is based on a selective admissions process with a maximum of 15 students selected annually.

    Degree information

    Through a balance of classroom instruction and clinical experience, the student will acquire applied skills and knowledge in the field of Surgical Technology.

    Surgical technologists work in the operating room under the direct supervision of a surgeon and a registered nurse. Surgical technologists help facilitate the draping, and prepping of the surgical patient. They gown, and glove other team members. They get all the instruments, supplies, equipment necessary for specific surgical procedures. As a member of the sterile team, surgical technologists will hand all necessary instruments and supplies to the surgeon and other team members.

    A surgical technologist has a broad knowledge of anatomy and physiology, microbiology, sterile techniques, and patient safety concepts as well as ethical and legal concepts. A surgical technologist must have an understanding of the hospital organization, policies, and procedures.

    Job opportunities and salaries in the healthcare specialty of surgical technology have been rising steadily over the last few years, and the U.S. Department of Labor predicts employment of surgical technologists is projected to grow 30% from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Advances in medical technology have made surgery safer, and more operations are being done to treat a variety of illnesses and injuries. The median annual wage for surgical technologists was $41,790 in May 2012.

    Most surgical technologists are employed by hospitals, day-surgery centers with the remainder working in the offices of physicians. After two years of experience, a certified surgical technologist may apply to become a traveling surgical technologist.

    Lackawanna College’s Surgical Technology program combines classroom instruction with practical clinical externships at local hospitals. Both career-specific and academic core courses are included. Students successfully completing the program are eligible to sit for the National Certifying Exam (CST).

    Surgical Technology Program classes are given days, nights and on weekends (based on the availability of the instructors). Clinical externships, however, must take place during the daytime.

    Objectives

    • To give students an understanding the need for surgical intervention
    • To develop an understanding of the role of surgical technologist as a member of the surgical team
    • To instruct students in the responsibilities which the performance of this role entails
    • To assist students in developing the knowledge of the organizational structure of the hospitals, its departments and the operating room
    • To develop a basic understanding of biological science as it relates to safe operating room procedure
    • To facilitate the hands-on, supervised experience in the operating room performing the duties of a surgical technologist.
