A FEW NOTES: If you have taken good notes and listened attentively in class, DON’T FRET! Review ALL lesson plans (looks for anything about Global and Cultural Studies) Review ALL presentations – especially the graphics Read over your notes Make sure you have done the readings, but do not focus on them; just understand the ideas behind them There are about 7-8 questions from each class, so make sure you understand all of the main principles from each class (hence the lesson plans)

    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.
