    Ok so I am really confused... Some of you are hearing no references for the case study? In response to the question regarding references for the case study my TA responded "look at the questions, a few of them say "using your textbook and other resources" so for those questions, you will want to have something other than your book". According to my TA no references are needed for the case study group work.
    There is lots of discrepancy here as well. They said no at first then changed their answer to yes when asked about it. I used 2 references just for the heck of it and submitted.....ready to be done with this!

    The lack of clear direction in this class is frustrating and hugely disappointing. It is almost as if this is the first time the class is being offered. Our TA has not responded to the questions regarding content and citations. I will try to play it safe and have a minimum of two paras for each question and perhaps a total of 4 or 5 citations/references. I don't think I can come up with a citation for each question though.

    I'm really looking forward to the mid-term. That should be straightforward if not downright easy, what with the excellent study guide posted just today by the concerned professor.

    I love coffee ice cream. If you're awake go for it. It's only 11:30 here. Finishing up the case study so I can look forward to all of those riveting chapters! I can hardly wait!

    I just posted my response to this week's case study and was shocked by the format. It's set up like a quiz and timed! What's the reason for that? My bet is that at one time, it was a quiz and just has never been changed in EPIC. The real question is why the format couldn't have been made clear to us before we attempted to post our answers. I can't be the only one who was prepared to cut and paste a single document, with references at the end of the last page (in my case, 3 pages of response with nearly a full page of references - 7 in total). I actually had to scramble to match things up to the individual questions; more work in an already labor-intense class.

    There have been some tough courses in this curriculum - in terms of vague, unclear assignments, not intellectual content - but I think this one takes the cake. The professor for this course ought to be ashamed of what it's become.
