Why attend discussions? Why is it worth your time? The lectures are short and tread quickly over important concepts. Here, we will make sure that they sink in. Gives you guys a chance to ask questions (it’s difFcult when surrounded by so many people) Know your enemy : The problems we do are actual questions from old tests and quizzes and may even turn up this semester Sometimes the questions may be written in a confusing language. The idea of these discussions is to ‘translate’ The more you practice, the quicker and easier you will get through the weekly quizzes and exams (and the better your grade) Andr´es Ham (ECON 102) Microeconomic Principles 1/23/2015 6 / 22

    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.
