If you reply to one of my e-mail’s, but you are changing the subject be sure to change the subject on the e-mail. COURSE DESIGN - This course closely follows the textbook chapters called modules in Canvas, our online learning “classroom”. I have broken most of the chapters into two chunks. The first few chapter objectives are done early in the week and then the rest of the objectives follow. Each chapter is completed on the same schedule each week. To encourage students to read (or at least look over) the chapter objectives before starting the chapter work, there is a required pre-quiz in Cengage, the homework management system. Passing grade on the pre-quiz is only 50% and you have only two attempts. To mimic a traditional classroom and todays work environment, you will be multi-tasking by 1) viewing a lecture PowerPoint, taking notes using a Lecture Follow Along (LFA) Excel file, and completing exercises called In Class Practice (ICP) in Cengage. In addition to the regular chapter work, there will be extra assignments during each chapter, such as using Pencil and Paper, Excel, General Ledger Software and preparing an analysis of an annual report, a current event PowerPoint, and two group projects. Accounting can’t be mastered by reading and lecture alone, you must apply the knowledge learned in practice, repeatedly. Once you get it, however, you have an invaluable skill for life. TEXT & SUPPLIES Financial and Managerial Accounting by Warren, Reeve, & Duchac 14 th edition Cengage Learning with the class and homework management system Cengage NOWv2. Cengage NOWv2 which includes the etext is free for the first 14 days of the course. At the Fullerton College bookstore, you can get the loose-leaf financial text and the CNOWv2 access for $200.75 plus tax ISBN: 9781337270748 which also includes the Cengage access and etext for Managerial Accounting. If you purchase the book cheaper be sure it also has the CNOWv2 access for the combined 14 th edition of Financial and Managerial . The access is the biggest part of the cost and the combined edition access is different from last spring and summer. You also need a calculator, pencil, straight-edge, 3 Scantron 882-E, and gummed erasure. Accounting paper will be supplied during office hours or during the mid-term seminar.

    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.
