- Each of the e-Workbook quizzes will be opened up at an appropriate time over the course of the semester (see the "Course Schedule" link for details).

- Do not use Google Chrome to do these online assignments--it is not compatible with WMU E-Learning and causes many unpredictable problems.



- I will reset any assignment that has locked up AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY INCORRECT ANSWERS in that assignment.
