I am teaching one Saturday hybrid 3312 class, others are twice a week, whith two 3311s and another 3312. As you will see I have assembled an array of resources to aid in your accounting study. We truly want you to believe that TAMUSA is a value added experience.
Far too many student wait to get really engaged in their accounting studies each semester. links are either on the syllabus or under course content on BB as TAMUSA Accounting Resources. I suggest you do the folloiwng
After the first class, order your book in print if you want or buy the sixth edition off Amazon for a mere ten bucks.
Examine the Schaums books, I have both and many students have done likewise so they are around, I suggest you order the intermediate versions off Amazon.
Give Quantum and FAME a try, these are very well done self study sites. While you are at it , log on to connect and give Learn Smart a try, it's free.
This would be good time to familiarize yourself with the textbook site www.mhhe.com/spiceland7e
Remember there is a power point for every chapter, great review, I suggest you watch multiple times. just pull down the tab to the chapter you want and the power point is ther. Notice how the flash cards are a log like Learn Smart.
Hey did you watch the Baruch site on the narrated description of the three statements, remember the link is on both the syllabus and TAMUSA Resources.
Oh, hey, how about those weblogs, if you are reading this you already found the first. Scroll bck thru the summer posts to get a feel for what professorelam is all about. Read the links, this is a darned fine free business course in and of itself.
Try some of the lnks such as marketwatch and yahoo finance, read those particularly during the week to keep up with the news.
And hey, don't forget to subscribe to the WSJ. I have sample copies coming in early September, why wait, start now and being increasing your contextual understanding of the markets.
And oh one more thing, get a supply of yellow highlighters, my favorite shade, and start reading the textbook. Write down the Learning Objectives LBOs, practice on the sample problems, uh uh, no cheating, cover up the answer, go as far as you can without looking at the answer, okay take a peek but then repeat the entire process. As I said this morning, looking at the answer will only make you an expert at, yep, looking at the answer, it will do noting to teach you how to work problems.
