CSC 105 - Computer Applications & Systems

  • All assignments are handed in through Campus Cruiser.  See each assignment for due dates and to submit.

  • Marquee Office 2010 - www.emcp.net/Marquee10 -

  • SNAP Link - The online test and quiz site.  You must be on-campus to take the exams.

    • Take a look at Quick start and FAQ to see how it is used.

  • Our Digital World - Second Edition  - The lecture textbook.  This link has all the PowerPoints I use in lecture. There are games but they do not show the correct answer if you miss one.  The study guides are just the topics in the chapter listed in order.  The only practice questions that I could find were in the "Jeopardy" Game.

 


HRI 103 - Principles of Food Selection & Preparation

  • Wiley Plus - Website to go with your textbook.  PowerPoints and sample test questions + more.

 

Equipment & Uniforms

  • The Comark PDT300 digital thermometer I use in class.  Shop online for the best price.  About $20.  Very accurate and a quick 6 second readout.  NSF approved, waterproof, & can be calibrated.

  • Shoes for Crews - Non-slip & comfortable.

  • Bragard Chef Apparel - Great selection.

  • Happy Chef Uniforms - Good selection & prices.

  • The Chef Hat - Some good prices on jackets.

  • Victorinox / Forschner - Good value knives by the people who make Swiss Army knives.  These are the knife brand sold in the MCC bookstore.

  • Wusthof Knives - The company home site.  You can get them in many stores and through internet sources.

  • Zwilling Henkel's Knives - Stay away from anything with a serrated edge.  Forged are the best and stamped out are a good value.

  • K Sabatier - The real French knife company.  Avoid the carbon steel.

  • Mac Knives - USA made - Among the best available.

  • Mad Cow Cutlery - Check the Smith's Sharpeners and Victorinox or Mundial knives.  Good value knives.  Great prices and very quick shipping.

  • Chef Depot - Internet site for everything.

  • Cooking.Com - Internet site for everything.

  • Instawares - Internet site for everything.

  • WEBsturant - Internet site for everything
