Our survey asks questions concerning soft drink drinks, such as Coke and Pepsi. The survey has three main objectives.

We took a list of everyone in the Class of 2012 network on Facebook and selected every 10 th person to participate in the survey after choosing a random starting point. The starting point was selected using a random integer feature on a calculator, and that number corresponded with the first person to be selected.

    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.
