Have students turn to the Toolkit section to observe that it is divided into six main parts: communications tools, CASE tools, financial analysis tools, project management tools, object-oriented analysis tools, and Internet resource tools. There are many ways to use the Toolkit, and instructors can decide what approach will work best for them. Instructors can experiment with a variety of strategies. For example, depending on the level of complexity and the available time, students might learn Toolkit skills in the classroom, on their own, or as members of groups or teams. In some assignments, students will need Toolkit skills to perform chapter tasks; in other situations, Toolkit material provides valuable background information.
