TEACHING MATERIALS - BEGINNERS
Please note: these documents have been prepared as carefully as possible, but we may have missed something. Please do not hesitate to contact the NZB Secretary, if you find anything we should amend. The Powerpoint presentations have been built on a recent version of the software, so if you are running the 2007 version, go to the bottom of the page and you will see an older version there. We recommend you update your Powerpoint software to get the best results. Good luck with your lessons. And if you have questions and have registered on this site, don't hesitate to ask at our Teaching forum.
The Lesson material is constantly being improved, so when starting a set of lessons, so we recommend you use the files below and not old ones you may have saved in the past.
