MR DOS - A DOS Tutorial
VERSION 2.31
Peter Diotte January, 1990


The MR DOS tutorial is a menu-driven, self-paced tutorial for learning about
a microcomputer and its Disk Operating System. It is split into 7 topics
ranging from - "First Time User" to "Hard Disk Level 2".

Each topic has 3 options:

1. SCAN-TEXT: On Screen "Scrollable" Text - self study
2. PRINT-TEXT: A Print-Out of the On Screen text
3. QUIZ: Multiple choice, fill-ins concerning the topic
covered. The user is scored and graded. Questions
are selected from a "pool" of questions for each
topic. When all the questions are covered for a
topic, they will be reset for the next session.

There is a main menu option to change the screen colors of your program.

Use the Function Key for on-screen Help and information related to
the topic in question. Pressing the Help key while highlighting an
option will give a brief explanation of what is covered in that topic.
