Formula for

It's your life, and you want to live
it to the fullest. You have high stan-
dards and goals, and you're eager to
plunge into the future. The formula
for your success isn't fixed, however;
the tools you use and how you look
can make a difference. You'll de-
mand the best in both fashion and
tools of your trade. Whether you're
aiming for Wall Street, an executive
office in a law firm, or the ivied halls

products and dress-for-success
clothes will give you the confidence

New Scientific Calculator for
Hewlett-Packard's new HP-22S
Scientific Calculator, with algebraic-
entry, was designed specifically for
college students. Its equation solver
lets you enter your own formulas
without programming. And once
you've entered them, equations can
be solved for any variable without
being reentered or rearranged.
The easy-to-use HP-22S has an
alphanumeric display with plain-
English messages, prompts and
labels, and a built-in library of the
science and math equations you'll
use most. It's a steal at just $59.95.
For extra practice, get an optional
Science Student Applications book.
If the HP-22S is not available at
your bookstore, call 1-800-752-0900
for the location of the HP dealer
nearest you.

Careers by Hart Schaffner & Marx -
Clothing for the Young Professional
New to the business world, the
young male professional is eager for
fashion leadership. Hart Schaffner &
Marx assists him with Careers, a
collection of suits, sportcoats, slacks
and outercoats designed to introduce
this aspiring executive to quality and
correct business style. Featuring a
slimmer silhouette in both contem-
porary and traditional styles, Careers
apparel is scaled to the propor-
tions - and price range - of the
younger man. All trousers and slacks
are tailored with pleats for that
added dash of style.

money you'll need to make it usable.
* How big is it? The amount of
memory (RAM) needed to run the
program is a crucial factor. Many ful-
ly configured word-processing pack-
ages require 512K of memory and two
disk drives. Some simple word-pro-
cessing programs squeak by on only
128K of memory, and still deliver a
modest range of features.
* What features do you need? A spell
checker? An automatic footnote in-
serter? A document translator that
can format files for use by other pro-
grams? If you are in a specialty field,
look into specialized software diction-
_ ary progr ats for the legal and medical
professions, among others. There are
programs on the market that can hefp
you create outlines, indexes, tables of
contents, and impressive reports.
Easy Editing
One of word processing's best fea-
tures is the ease with which you can
make corrections. You can also proof-
read, edit, and restructure any docu-
ment you write- before you print out
a single page. All this could give you
time to do extra research, or see a
movie. It all depends on the software
you choose, some of which is available
on a trial basis. For sources, check
with your school's computer support
services, or with user groups, electron-
ic bulletin boards, software stores, or
mail order houses.
More than 64 percent of all PC own-
ers use their machines for word pro-
cessing. They are almost universally
creating documents that are well-
organized, visually appealing, and ef-
ficiently produced.
If you're still wondering whether
the investment in word processing is
worth it, just ask the student who
depends on it. He or she probably lives
next door.LQ

Beyond the Basics:
The Advantages of the Advanced

Choose an advanced word processor by analyzing the kind of writing that
you do. If you are majoring in math, science, or business - any discipline in-
volving technical writing- advanced word-processing systems can provide
flexibility and text organization you might not otherwise have.
Advanced word processors let you select font styles (including foreign-
language characters) and specify such format options as type size, margin set-
tings, column formats, super- and subscripts, tables of contents, and indexes,
as well as simple graphics and mathematical calculations.
Software for advanced programs is expensive, and can be difficult to learn.
In all cases, make sure that any program you buy is compatible with your ex-
isting PC and printer.
