Test #1 Study GuideSTUDY GUIDE FOR PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICS This study guide is an extended version of the check listprepared by Dr.Karkoviata. This is part of the resources available to students. Regardless of the mode ofyour class; face to face, hybrid or online, the team taught program is an interactive program where thestudent is provided the opportunity to take responsibility for his or her learning through self-directedlearning resources. The student takes the initiative to pursue a learning experience, and theresponsibility for completing their learning. This does not mean the student does not receive instruction,tutoring or guidance from the Lead professor or support professor. Self-direction does not mean thelearner learns on his or her own or in isolation. The key factor is that the student is responsible for his orher individual total learning experience, beginning with recognizing a need to learn. A critical differencein the team taught program is that there are two instructors, the Lead and Support Professor whoprovide a holistic approach to the learning experience. The Lead Professor designs the course structure,oversees the program, and with the Support Instructor monitors student progress (or lack thereof). TheSupport Instructor provides direct classroom instruction across all platforms; F2F, hybrid or online. Thisstudy guide is just one of many resources available to the student. There are also instructor videos by theLead Professor and the author of the textbook, learning activities, flashcards, practice quizzes and handson problem solving sets.

You know whereyou want to go and when you have to arrive. There are a number of routes available, choice oftransportation and even when you start your journey. You may choose to use all the resources availableor few. The key is to use them efficiently. How much time should you study or can expect to study? Mostof the literature I’ve seen say that students should spend 3 hours PER CREDIT HOUR a week. Ergo, a 3credit hour class like this translates to 12 hours a week. If you take 5 classes, that will be 60 hours aweek. This is why working full time and taking a full load can be very challenging. Will you actually haveto spend 12 hours a week? Like a true economist, the answer is, “It depends”. It depends on howefficient your reading comprehension is and how established your study habits are. There are otherthings you might discover that you can improve on. I have had excellent students spend between 2 to 6hours a week studying. Time management skills and organization of your study materials well will helpyou reduce the study and preparation time. Start by organizing a folder, a physical or online folder, andkeep your resources such as notes, textbook (this textbook is a loose-leaf 3 ring binder edition), the
