"COBOL, Just in Time!" Course
Course Purpose:
The purpose of the course is to train someone with little or no familiarity with programming (or someone who is familiar with programming, but in another language), how to write and modify business programs in the COBOL programming language. It is designed to be done at the office, or at home.
The Study Guide
The purpose of the study guide is to walk the student through all the steps to take when studying the course. In general it follows the lessons in the book "Teach Yourself COBOL in 21 Days", but contains a lot of helpful tips, some key additional information, and several things that will help you get through the course more quickly. The guide is intended to act as a "professor" on paper. It is particularly critical in the first part of the course where many concepts are being introduced quickly.
