Module 3: Q1: Comparing Personal vs. Market Value [40 points] I am especially pleased to own my new baby blue French bulldog. He is the absolute cutest puppy in the world.

The difference between both our dogs is that his is not AKC certified – therefore he/she holds less value to some people. I happened to look over a different website to find a more comparable pure blue French bulldog. I found an independent breeder who sells her puppies for $3,000.

    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.
