Dennis Zuo Ms.Geovanis AP Government November 5th, 2006 Kerry the Flip Flopper or Bush the Liar?

    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.
