All the others students in the class studied hard, too. The student earned a numerical score of 85 on the exam, but because the professor graded on the curve and the class as a whole averaged 85, the graded counted only as a "C." _______________________________ c) If we allow Economics Majors at Old State U to take Personal Finance as a career track course, the next thing you know, we'll have to let them take Bowling or Ball Room Dancing as a career track course. _____________________________________ d) Either we support all our government's policies all the time or we allow anarchy to reign. ____________________________ e) You have a fever and you have a cough.

    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.
