HOW TO USE THE MODULE


/elcome to the Module !Configuring Computer System and Net orks". This module contains training materials and acti ities for !ou to com*lete. The unit of com*etenc! !Configure Computer System and Net orks" contains %nowledge0 s%ills and attitudes re1uired for a Computer Hardware Servicing NC II course. 2ou are re1uired to go through a series of learning acti ities in order to com*lete each of the learning outcomes of the module. In each learning outcome there are Information Sheets, Operation Sheets, o! Sheet and A"ti#it$ Sheets. 3ollow these acti ities on !our own and answer the Self4$hec% at the end of each learning acti it!. If !ou ha e 1uestions0 don5t hesitate to as% !our teacher for assistance.
