The source for exam questions is the textbook, the presentation slides, and lecture discussions that include new information. The presentation slides are a limited selection of topics from the textbook reading material. Those slides will be the source of 1/3rd of the exam questions. Study those slides as they are presented in written PowerPoint form. The lecture discussions regarding slide topics will be the source of 1/3rd of the exam questions. Study written notes and review mental notes collected for those slides. This material includes the professor’s oratory, students’ ideas, new information presented in writing (PowerPoint, Document Camera, Dry Erase Board), and supplementary sources such as videos, audio files, guest speakers, and demonstrations. Finally, and most importantly, the textbook reading material will be the source of 1/3rd of the exam questions. The textbook overlaps significantly with the presentation slides and the lecture discussions. At times, material from the textbook will be repeated in the slides and in lecture discussion. Some of the textbook material will not be covered in class in the slides or discussion and must be discovered outside of class mention. The textbook reading is primarily dependent on the paragraphs of content and keyword summaries. Additionally, areas outside of the paragraph content are assessed, including Figures, Tables, Manager’s Library, Ethics Check, Role Models, and Facts to Consider. These areas are not assessed but may be read for improved understanding of topics: Management Live, Tips to Remember, and Explore Yourself. The Manager’s Library is repackaged in the presentation slides as Classroom Exercises. In summary, the textbook reading is the underlying foundation of all topics discussed and assessed so view this activity as critical.
