MIS 2101.006 – Leonard Nelson – Spring 2017

MIS 2101 Exam 3 Review Session

The Diamond Peer Teachers will hold an MIS 2101 Exam 3 review session on Tuesday May 2nd from 12 PM to 1:30 PM in Speakman 115. 

The purpose of the session is offer an additional opportunity to complete a practice mini case. As you all know by now, the best way to prepare for the first 15 questions on your exam is to study course content (assigned readings, videos, and PowerPoints) and the best way to prepare for the final 10 questions is by practicing your technique for how to approach mini-cases.

Sean has created a mini case that is similar in structure to the mini case you will see on the exam. It contains: a narrative, a swimlane diagram with missing components, an ERD with missing components, and a series of multiple choice questions that ask you to fill in the missing components from the diagrams. Sean will distribute the mini case and give you 30 minutes to complete the questions, and then will go over it is a group.

Following that, Sean will answer any questions you have about content covered in the course so far.

For those who cannot attend, the session will be recorded, and the link will be posted shortly after the session ends.

Max Labs 3 – Help Desk Sessions

Max Labs 3 Help Desk sessions will be available leading up to the submission date of each assignment. A team of Information Technology Assistants (ITAs) will be running Max Lab Help Desk Sessions. The sessions will be held in either Alter 602 or 603, all five days of the week, at various times. Two ITAs will be on hand during each session.

Many of you will find you are able to complete the assignments on your own without any difficulty, and that is great.
