A broad objective of the course is to familiarize the student with planning and control in a managerial environment. To accomplish this, the student should understand: cost-volume-profit analysis and interpret results; how to prepare operating budgets; variances in a standard costing system; and how flexible budgets are prepared . A broad objective of the course is to familiarize students with decision-making using cost data. To accomplish this, the student should understand: relevant costs and use them to make decisions; capital budgeting techniques to make decisions. REQULAR EXAMINATIONS : There will be five (5) regular examinations given during the semester. The exam dates are listed below and on the Schedule of Assignments. The final examination will be optional and will be given during final exam week. If you must miss a regular exam, the final exam must be taken to replace the missed exam, so you will not be able to replace an exam with a lower score and miss an exam. Concepts presented in this course build on previous learning so all examinations are comprehensive, however, the intent of the second, third, fourth and fifth regular examinations is to test material covered after the previous examination. Each regular examination will consist of 30 multiple-choice questions. The multiple-choice questions will include questions from concepts and definitions in the reading assignments; all of these topics may not have been specifically covered in class. OPTIONAL FINAL EXAMINATION : The final examination is optional and comprehensive . It will be split about equally among the chapters covered throughout the course. In case a student may miss an exam or not satisfied with a score on one exam, the score earned on the final examination will substitute for a score on one (and only one) regular examination. THE UNIVERSITY SCHEDULES THE FINAL EXAM. BECAUSE WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN THE FINAL WILL BE SCHEDULED, DO NOT PLAN TO LEAVE BEFORE FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15 until the final exam is scheduled.
