General Psychology 830:101:13 Spring 2012 Extra Credit Assignment #1: Save Ferris *Worth up to 5 Extra Credit points added to your final course grade* [Note: Extended Deadline: Paper Due Monday, March 5 th ] Meet Ferris: Ferris B. (name omitted to protect his identity) is a first year student at Rutgers University and he needs your help. He is having a difficult time adjusting to college life and after a rough first semester. He really needs to show serious improvement. He returned from Winter Break with lots of motivation, but after his first round of exams, he’s worried that lots of motivation won’t be enough to help him meet his goals. As luck would have it, you meet Ferris just after you completed the reading for Chapter 6. After hearing his story, you realize more than anything, Ferris could benefit from a friendly dose of Psychology—Ferris realizes this too and starts asking you questions: Why can’t I make it to my morning class on time? Why do I have trouble on tests even when I studied? Why do I have trouble taking notes during class? Why are exams so hard? [on multiple choice exams he can never eliminate more than 1 or 2 options] Why do I feel like I’m reading/working all the time and has little to show for it?

    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.
