Philosophy:

This is a highly-compressed course that depends on the focus and motivation of the student. Reading assignments must be done in advance of the classroom sessions. The classroom sessions are fast-paced, covering a wide variety of material in a short time.  The use of practice exams is very important for evaluating topic areas that need attention.
