Understand better what you’re learning in Business Organizations, Corporations, or Agency and Partnership class and prepare effectively for exams by applying concepts as you learn them. This study guide includes over 190 multiple-choice and short-answer questions arranged topically for ease of use during the semester, plus an additional set of 28 questions comprising a comprehensive “practice exam.”

For each multiple-choice question, Professor Branson provides a detailed answer that indicates which of four options is the best answer and explains thoroughly why that option is better than the other three options. Each short-answer question is designed to be answered in fifteen minutes or less. For these questions, Professor Branson provides a thoughtful, comprehensive, yet brief model answer.
