FORMULA FOR SUCCESS: I strongly believe that learning is a self-motivated process. Success in this course will depend on a combination of the following: Class attendance. There is NO substitute for attending class. I will often emphasize or add on to topics discussed in the textbook. You will be responsible for all material covered in lecture, in addition to readings assigned from the textbook. The chapter's significant issues will be summarized and any related material not adequately covered in the assigned readings will be presented Read assigned chapters once prior to the lecture day and again to carefully study examples. Practice, practice, practice! I STRONGLY encourage students to complete all assigned homework on time and with a considerable amount of effort. Learning to master any subject requires hard work and plenty of practice. Homework assignments are designed to reemphasize important concepts discussed in class as well as give you opportunities to practice applying key financial accounting concepts.
