    Work on research projects. We want to start doing these 10-minute presentations
    before Thanksgiving. They don't have to be giant projects. If you have a topic,
    make a list of important points you want to share with the class and how many minutes
    to spend on each point. We'll talk about this next week, so we can review your gameplans
    for your presentations.

    Finish reading A+ in Depth Chapter 11, and take notes. Answer Ch. 11 review questions
    1-17 on p. 490-493

    Important concepts in Chapter 11 to take notes on:

    Installing sound cards
    Identify CDROM file systems
    How CDROMS and DVDs interface with the motherboard
    Different technologies for burning CDs and DVDs
    How Tape Drives Work
    Different types of removable drives (ZIP, JAZ)
    How to troubleshoot CDROM, DVD, Tape Drives and Removable Drives.

    Start reading A+ in Depth Chapter 12, Supporting Windows 9x. You may
    already know a number of concepts discussed in this chapter. It might be
    helpful to prepare a list of questions on topics in Chapter 12 that you want
    to discuss in class. (Pay particular attention to the table on page 521.)

    Start taking A+ practice tests on the Core Exam. Install the CD in the
    back of your book and see Passitnow, MCMCSE and other websites.
