P371, OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT IN PREPARATION FOR EXAM-1 This exam will cover all assigned readings, exercises, and class discussions since the start of the session. In this note, I will attempt to provide some additional guidance. The exam will consist of 40 questions. Most of these will be multiple-choice; there will be a problem set (not multiple choice) similar to Kristen’s Cookies (and the other process analysis problems provided in Resources, one of which is formatted and presented as it will appear in the exam); I have also posted some sample exam questions that will include another practice problem. The problem set will have about 8 or so questions (included in the total of 40—all others will be multiple choice). All questions are worth the same number of points (3.5 yielding a total of 140 points). Regarding preparation for the exam, I hope that you have been following my recommendations on page three of the syllabus. I am sometimes asked if emphasis should be placed on the text or the PowerPoint files. My answer is both. The PowerPoint files reflect the key points; the text provides the explanations . What else can you do? LearnSmart: for the chapters from the Jacobs text (the “blue” chapters) go back through LearnSmart (which is something that you should have been doing all along—the structured repetition provided by LearnSmart will help most people). Also for the “blue” chapters, look at the list of learning objectives at the start of each chapter. Write a short paragraph about each. Then, compare what you have written to the “Concept Connections” presented at the end of each chapter. Does your statement pretty much match what is shown in the text? (Do not try to memorize what is presented in the text; memorization will not promote understanding.) As you go through the “blue” chapters, make note of the “key ideas” shown in the margins.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
