As a business student, I have zero experience in law courses, so this course really intimidated me! My instructor was great about giving thorough explanations, and I was able to get some additional help with research for my assignments. The tutors and librarians here are the best!

This class was kind of next level for APA, and when I checked my first grades, I realized there was a lot to APA that I just didn't know to do. My advisor told me about the APA Guide, and I also met with a tutor for APA, too. Use your resources! They make life so much easier.
