You will also need to buy the 882 E Scantron sheets for exams. To cite your secondary sources accurately for the report, you must either purchase or borrow a Reference book which gives explicit instructions and examples of how to use the APA reference style. I have an abbreviated version of the APA Reference style on my Blackboard home page for your convenience. COURSE OBJECTIVES 1. To discuss the importance of communication to your career and personal life. 2. To learn the general principles of good business writing. 3. To teach how to design an effective resume. 4. To learn how to write business memos, letters, and analytical reports. 5. To teach the principles of how to give an effective oral presentation. COURSE REQUIREMENTS 1. CLASS ATTENDANCE -- Two points will be added to your final semester grade if you have perfect attendance—NO EXCEPTIONS. If you have more than two unexcused absences (beginning with the third), two points will be deducted from your final semester grade for every absence thereafter. It is important that you attend each class --be sure to bring your textbook to each class--and complete assignments as scheduled. All assignments are handed out during class, so if you miss class, you won’t have the assignment and these assignments cannot be made up later. If you come in late to class, it is your responsibility to tell me after class that you were late; otherwise, the tardy will count as an absence. Three tardies, for any reason, will count as one absence . It is your responsibility to make sure that you are officially enrolled in this course. If at any point you decide to drop the class, it is your responsibility to officially drop. Any student who stops attending class and does not officially drop the course will be given an “F” as the semester grade.

    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.
