Case Studies Name: 1 Jim just graduated from high school and has decided to work for a year before going to college. He will need a car to get to and from his job at the mall. He has $2,000 saved that he could spend on a car, or he can drive his parent’s extra car—an old clunker that has seen better days. What advice would you give Jim? I think that using the extra car would be a good idea until he can fully pay for a nicer car so he wont have to worry about car payments. This would allow him to also focus on getting more done in the long run. 2 Chris and Emily want to buy a new couch and have found the one they want for $999. They only have $200 saved, but they can take advantage of a six-months-same- as-cash deal. Over the next six months, they could save up the extra $799, pay it off early, and save on the interest. Is this a good idea? What advice would you give them? I would advise then to just get bean bags or something else because it wouldn’t be a good idea. He shouldn’t buy something that is unnecessary to buy.

    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.
