Hi, This is a reminder that the first midterm will be held in the classroom *next Wednesday, the 7th of October*. While I do not give study guides *per se* there are some things that you should know that may help you prepare for the exam. 1.

    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.
