How to do well in A100: It is important to read the readings and work the problems to do well in A100. The class moves quickly, so make sure you allocate sufficient time to it. It is a one-credit hour course but since it only meets one-half of the semester, while you are in A100 expect twice the amount of work as you would for a one-hour course that is a full semester long. Read the readings before coming to class . If you are aware of what we will be covering in class, the lecture will make more sense to you. Work extra problems until you are confident you understand the material. You understand accounting by working problems which require you to use accounting concepts. It is not good enough to watch me go through problems. You need to go through the thought process on your own many times before you take the exam. A100 exams require an understanding of the material that is more than just memorization. That understanding comes from working the problems. Examinations and Grading: We will have two examinations in A100, both of which are weighted at 45% of your course grade. Questions on the exam will come from these sources: The A100 readings and other student materials posted on Oncourse “Resources” and the class lectures and exercises.
