In some cases the lectures will match the text closely. In other cases the there will be little to no correspondence. This means that if you miss class, the textbook will not contain the missed material. You must obtain the notes from another student. If you expect or desire a close matching between lectures and textbook, you should not take this course! Expectations and Policies: 1. Attain access to the course website on Blackboard, and check it regularly. 2.

    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.
