BUS 160 (01 & 12), fall 2016 Study Guide for Mid-Term 2 (Individual Exam 10/19; Team Exam 10/24) EXAM PROCEDURES Per the course syllabus, we will use both an individual and a team-based format for the Mid-Term 2 Exam. As for Mid-Term 1, the exam will first be conducted on an individual basis and then students will take the same exam on a team basis. The exam will cover Chapters 7-12 in the Daft text, edition 12. There will be 50 multiple choice questions worth 2 points each taken from these 6 chapters. The exam is closed book but 2 pages of handwritten notes (not typed) with writing on the front and back pages is permitted. RECOMMENDED STUDY APPROACHES 1 Know the definitions in each chapter. If you know the basic concepts, you will be able to reason out the answer on multiple choice questions. Using 3x5 cards is an excellent learning method. 2 Get all the true-false quizzes done on Canvas. 3 Study in your team. 4 Go to the publisher’s website and do the online quizzes and exercises at: http://login.cengagebrain.com/cb/register.htm?method=loadRegistrationForm&nr=y TEST-TAKING TIPS 1 Read each question very carefully. Often one word changes what is the correct answer, but there are no “trick” questions. Students are tested on knowledge of the fundamentals. 2 Use a process of elimination on the multiple choices. 3 Double check to ensure you answered all questions and recorded them on your Scantron. 4 Be very careful in changing an answer. More often than not, your first impression is correct. 5 For some students having a concentration problem, a useful technique can be to first read the question backwards to imprint each word in your mind and then read the question in the normal manner for meaning. This can keep the mind from skipping over words. So often we read in “chunks” and can miss key words that change the question and the correct answer.

    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.
