Review Exam 1. The questions are not in any particular order, even though the review might incorrectly give you that idea. When you study for the exam, I need you to go through each of the points in the review and make sure that you understand the issues. Also, you need to read the questions at least three times before you attempt to answer them. This is so your first answer is not based on your best guess but more on your knowledge of the information. Eliminate two of the wrong answer and choose the best possible answer from the two options that are left. After the exam, you have the chance to repudiate the questions that you missed during the regular exam. You can only do that once and I will make a note of that occurrence. Whenever you feel that your answer might be better than mine, you could challenge me per email (not verbally) about your reasons why. I will not accept verbal or hand-written arguments and I will only consider the rebuttals in the format below. This offer is only good until the end of the semester (5/01/08) and does not apply to your final. The format that I want you to use for the rebuttals: 1) Write down the question as it was stated in your exam! 2) Write the answer that you gave during the exam! 3) Write the answer that you thought also applies to this question! 4) More importantly, explain clearly why you think your answer is better! Your final (possibly optional) will contain questions from your previous. This will give you the opportunity to do well during your final without damaging your pre-final grade, or it could potentially increase your grade. I wanted to mention again that I will not negotiate over an “A” and I will not grade you on the basis of your expectations. You will have ample opportunities to inquire about your academic standing throughout the semester so there will not be any confusion. Review: 1. How does a firm raise cash? (p.4) 2.
