Telecourses are not easy. In fact it takes a lot of discipline and dedication to get through all the films and the text. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU ATTEND THE REVIEW SESSIONS, AS THIS WILL HELP YOU PASS THE COURSE.
If you want your midterm or final grades sent to you immediately after taking the exam bring a self-addressed and stamped post card on exam day. Even better, send me an e-mail message asking for the grade and Iíll will send it to you through cyberspace.
