- Some handwriting can be pretty tough to decipher. If data entry handwriting is especially bad it might be a good idea to go over the same gizmo a couple of times.
- Make sure that the gizmo type on the paper matches the gizmo type on the computer, e.g. if you are entering data for systems make sure that the gizmo doesn't come up as a monitor. If the gizmos don't match double check the ID number. If they still don't match consult an instructor.
- Keep on the data entry paper translates to Stored on the computer.
