Study Guide - Exam 1 MGMT 301 Spring 2011 The first exam will cover the material in Modules 1, 2, 3, and 4. Listed below are the concepts likely to be found on the test. You should understand what the terms mean, the research findings that pertain to them, and what work-place or applied implications they have. Questions on the exam will come from both what is discussed in lecture and lab as well as material in the book. The exam will be 45 multiple-choice items. Remember to bring in sharpened pencils with you to take the exam. Study Tips: 1. Keep up with the material every week (read before viewing the lecture, print out slides from course website, take notes during lecture, review notes after lecture) 2. Do NOT rely on only memorization – you need to know what the concepts mean and why they matter or could be applied. 3. Focus on understanding the meaning and application of course concepts 4. Ask and answer the following questions: a. What is a workplace example of this concept? b. Why does this matter to employees or managers? c. What impact does this concept have on organizational performance? d. What are implications of this research finding for employees, managers, and organizations? e. How does concept “A” relate to concept “B”? 5. Be sure that YOU understand and can generate examples of the concepts. Often people read and understand but don’t force themselves to generate their own examples. This is when you know that either you fully understand or you don’t. 6. Teach someone else . Get the words off the paper, into your head, and explain them to someone else (even your dog if no one else will listen : ). 7. Form a study group. Discussing the material with other can be very helpful. One note of caution, typically the person who does the “teaching” or who really understands the information gets more out of a group study session than “recipients” of the information. So to make a study group beneficial for all, each member should do a fair amount of studying ahead of time so that areas of confusion can be discussed and focused on.

    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.
