4 General Studying Advice Study from the lecture notes first . Most questions will come from what we covered in class. The textbook complements the lecture notes and is key for certain topics, as noted in lecture. The assignments page (on Compass) identifies what parts of the chapter you are responsible for. There will be some (2-4) questions on the CanGo exercises and about the same number on in-class video clips. Roughly equal numbers of questions will come from each class session. The study guide helps you focus your studying, but please also refer to the practice questions. They show the types of questions to be ready for.

5 Using the study guide Each page works through the lecture for one session, identifying key concepts and theories that you should be familiar with. For concepts, know more than the definition. Usually there are some notable features or relationships associated with the concept that we have covered, so be familiar with those. For theories, know the basic argument the theory makes, the components of the theory and relationships between them, and implications or predictions for organizations. Advantages (pros) and disadvantages (cons) are always important. Questions can ask you to apply the theory to an example situation. See slides in study guide for examples of the depth/type of knowledge you should have.
