Don't Leave Home Without It !!!!!
Do you have one of these?
It's called many things: jump drive, thumb drive, travel drive, USB drive, flash drive......but whatever you call it get one to save all of your school documents. Keep it with you at all times and use it !!! As soon as you start your Word document or your PowerPoint project save your work to your jump drive and keep saving your documents as you work. It will save much time and grief if something happens to your work and you haven't saved it. These drives are not expensive. Check the newspaper flyers and often you can find them on sale for less than $10. The following document, prepared by Mary Williams (Ivy Tech faculty member), will explain how to rename your drive in case you lose it and also how to save documents. Click HERE.
