Introduction to Business Assignments and Information:

Assignment 1: Page 21 - CTQ #3, due 1-29-15.  Assignment is to be typed, printed and submitted at the beginning of class.

Make sure to have your MYBIZLAB code available (was included with your textbook) - more will be stated in class:

As discussed in class, MYBIZLAB is strongly recommended as a supplement to the text and will help you better prepare for exams.  I have confirmed with the bookstore that used texts do not include the code.  You can return your used book by February 9 and purchase a new copy (either the 3rd or 4th edition) which will include the access code - a difference of approximately $23. This amount is less than purchasing the access code from the publisher for $40.

Instructions for registering on to MYBIZLAB are on this link.
