FINAL STUDY GUIDE, BUS 480, Integrated Business Policy 1. The Final for BUS 480 is 90 multiple-choice questions.

Questions are worth 1 point each. The questions are on subject matter from Chapters 1-12 and Web Chapters A, B, C. The final will be open to take from Wednesday to Saturday in Week 4. Once you begin, you must finish. You have 2 hours to take the final. 2. I recommend that you record your answers on paper as you go along, so that if you get thrown out or have problems saving or posting the exam, you will have the answers and not have to start from scratch when you are re-entered. Contact me by telephone if you get thrown out. I can give you additional time or restart your clock from the beginning depending on your situation. Save your answers in eCollege during the exam as you are prompted so the exam does not time-out on you. Check with the Help Desk for the latest guidance on firewalls/pop-up blockers that may affect your connectivity with eCollege during exams. 3. I will open the final exam with the correct answers as soon as all students have completed the exam.
