A Message from your Instructor
Welcome to Introduction to Personal Finance (Business 91). I have tried to create a course that is interesting to take and easy to complete. This is a 3 unit course. The class does not begin until the 4th week of the quarter, so it will run for 8 weeks rather than the normal 11 weeks.
You must buy and read the assigned pages in the course textbook in order to be successful in this class. The textbook is:

"Personal Finance," 10th ed., by Kapoor, Dlabay and Hughes, McGraw-Hill/Irwin, 2012. ISBN: 0073530697

I recommend you obtain your text and get started on the material AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Right now would be good. Remember that this class is only 8 weeks long, so the term moves quickly. If you order your text online and it takes more than a week to arrive, you will fall behind!
Hours of Study
Be prepared to spend a minimum of 10 hours per week using and studying the course materials.
How to get started in your course
Once the quarter starts you will be able to login to the course web site at:

This site also has links for technical help and FAQ related to the Catalyst system used for this course. Make sure you are able to login to the system and access the course web site. Review the syllabus carefully and familiarize yourself with the site. Once you've completed this, then let me know if you have any questions.
