Student Workbook for Murach\u2019s Mainframe COBOL
How to use this workbook
This workbook is designed as a companion to our book, Murach\u2019s Mainframe
COBOL. If you are using this workbook as part of a college course or corporate training

program, your instructor may give you specific information about how to use the
material it contains. In general, though, you can use this material to determine if you
understand and can apply the information presented in each chapter of the book. The
topics that follow present some additional information about how to use each of the
components of this workbook.

Objectives

To help you prepare for taking the tests and doing the projects your instructor
assigns, this workbook includes objectives for each chapter. These objectives describe
what you should be able to do after reading the chapter. If you want to, you can review
the objectives for a chapter before you start reading it so you know what material to
focus on. Keep in mind, however, that you may not fully understand the objectives at that
point. In any case, you\u2019ll definitely want to review the objectives once you\u2019ve finished
the chapter.

If you study the objectives, you can see that the first objectives for most chapters are
what we refer to as applied objectives. These ask you to apply what you\u2019ve learned as
you develop COBOL programs. If you can develop the applications described in the
projects at the end of this workbook, you have met these objectives.

After the applied objectives for each chapter, you\u2019ll find what we refer to as
knowledge objectives (for some chapters, which focus on introductory or conceptual

material, all of the objectives are knowledge objectives). These objectives define skills
like identifying, describing, and explaining the required concepts, terms, and procedures.
In general, you should be able to do the knowledge objectives, even if you have trouble
with the applied objectives.

Summaries

This workbook also includes a summary of the information presented in each
chapter. After you read a chapter, you can use this summary to review the main concepts
and programming techniques presented in it. Then, if you aren\u2019t clear about any of these
summary points, you can review the topics that present them. That will help you to
prepare for the chapter test and the projects your instructor may assign.

Terms

In addition to the summary, a list of terms is presented for each chapter. After
reading a chapter, you should scan the list to check that you understand each term. If you
don\u2019t, you\u2019ll want to look back in the chapter to find the terms that are confusing to you
so you can see how they\u2019re used. As you do that, keep in mind that you\u2019re not expected
to write definitions of the terms. You just need to understand how they\u2019re used in the
context of COBOL programming.

Student Workbook for Murach\u2019s Mainframe COBOL
Projects

At the end of this workbook, you\u2019ll find projects that you should be able to complete
after reading each chapter. These projects are intended to test your ability to develop
COBOL programs from scratch. Although the program specifications for each project are
detailed enough for you to complete the project, you\u2019ll need to determine minor details
on your own.

Most likely, your instructor will assign one or more of these projects to be completed
after reading a particular chapter or section of the book. Your instructor may also give
you additional details about how each project should be implemented. If your instructor
doesn\u2019t assign these projects, you may want to develop one or more of them on your own
to be sure that you\u2019ve mastered the programming techniques that were presented in that
chapter or section.
