Course Materials
Ferrett, Peak Performance: Success in College and Beyond, 6e, McGraw-Hill Companies 2008

Course Goals

Course Policies
Material will be presented primarily in the form of lectures, readings assignments from the text, and occasionally films. Lecture will cover the points to be learned and will direct your study from the text, however some material will be presented in class that is not in the text. Thus, you should attend class, pay attention while there, and take notes over the material. You should plan on 2 hours of study outside of class for every hour in lecture. The material in the latter part of the course will be based upon material presented in the first part of the course, therefore you will have to commit the material to long term memory. In addition, the final exam is comprehensive.

Grading:
Your grade will be determined based upon the total points earned on examinations, quizzes, and a term paper (750 possible points for the semester). There is no provision for doing extra or outside work to improve your grade.

A = 90.0% to 100%
B = 80.0% to 89.9%
C = 70.0% to 79.9%
