Partial Credit Life Does NOT Give Partial Credit You get charged for a bounced check. The bridge collapses. The patient dies. The bank forecloses/repossesses. You get fired. Very little, if any, partial credit will be given on tests. You are expected to do arithmetic correctly. You may use a calculator to check most solutions.

Take Notes! “95% of what you hear is forgotten within 72 hours.” “90% of what you hear is forgotten a few days later.“ “50% of what you hear is forgotten within 60 seconds.” “66% of what you hear is forgotten in one day.” The more you become engaged in the class, the more you will remember and get out of it. "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." -- Confucius
