Professor’s Job/Goal = To assist you in obtaining these skills
Economics is a subject you learn by doing,
not by memorizing.
The more you work problems,
the better you understand the concepts –
and the better you’ll do on tests.
Treat this like a math class – practice every day – in order to succeed
MyEconLabgives you lots of practice and study resources. For every chapter, you get:
*Study Plan grade comes from 10 hours spent in this area.
Homework helps you practice :
This is the only assignment that can be worked late – However,
Your grade penalty is 5 points per day

You’ll do better on quizzes and tests when you
identify which topics you know well,
and master topics you don’t know yet.
MyEconLab helps you do both.
