His office is in HA 391 and his telephone number is: 778-892-0984 ( daytime only ). Students from any section are welcome to drop in to any tutorial session: Tue. 12:30-2:00 HA 343 Wed. 4:00-5:30 HA 347 Thu. 12:30-2:00 HA 343 CLASS LIAISON REPRESENTATIVE Every section will elect a Class Liaison Representative once the term begins. If you have suggestions about classroom organization or procedures, or other relevant issues, please let the representative know so he or she can discuss them with your professor. TEXTBOOK There is one required textbook for the course: Business Statistics, UBC 3rd Custom Edition for the University of British Columbia; Sharpe, NR; De Veaux, RD; Velleman, PF, Wright D. Pearson Learning Solutions, Boston, 2012. A newly purchased textbook comes bundled with an access code for MyStatLab, and on-line resource that supplements the text. It has a wealth of study resources, answers to exercises, practice questions, and much more. It is not mandatory, but it is strongly recommended. IMPORTANT: This edition was used last year; it is a custom version of an excellent, extremely readable Canadian edition used over the past three years. The custom part has six years’ worth of past midterms and final exams from COMM 291, with solutions and explanations. You will find it to be extremely valuable study material. I do not recommend using an older edition. A lot has changed from the U.S. edition, and the section with annotated exams has been updated. The textbook authors state their goal as: “Read This Book! The best textbook in the world is of little value if students don’t read it.” The book has many excellent features: check them out! Advice #1. Read the Preface to see how this book differs from most others and for explanations of the features. Advice #2. The text has many excellent exercises based on interesting and realistic data. Statistics is not a spectator sport; you have to be an active participant. It is vitally important that you regularly test yourself using examples and problems available in the text. You cannot learn the course material without practising! 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.
