Q: How is this site different from the book?
A: This site has a variety of features that complement
the book. It offers test questions that are different from the
questions you’ll be receiving on tests. In addition, you can give
yourself practice tests as many times as you want on the Web site;
the automatic test generator provides slightly different questions
each time. Also, this site offers an array of links that are connected
to the Internet exercises in your book. Click on any of these
to visit these sites. Finally, you will also enjoy the biographical
links that are provided for each chapter. Each of these links
will give you greater insight into the lives of the people who
have helped shape human relations today.
Will I be graded on the practice test?
A: Although your professor has the option of asking students
to e-mail test results to him or her, you do not have be graded.
In many instances, these tests serve as practice for you before
you take an in-class exam.
Q: One of the links is dead, and my assignment is due tomorrow.
What do I do?
A: Contact the Webmaster and give a full description of the
dead link and where it appears on the Web site, then contact your
professor and explain the situation. If the link is truly dead,
other students will have the same problem and another Internet Exercise
can be assigned in its place. However, sometimes links “play dead”
due to server problems. Before you contact anyone, try the link
again 10 minutes later. If it still fails to work, it is most likely
Q: I want to read more about one of
the people featured in the Biographical Links section. Where do
A: You can start by looking at www.biography.com,
which contains brief biographies of thousands of personalities.
In addition, you can look on your favorite search engine and type
in something like “Elton Mayo bio” to see what appears. Some other
human relations students and professors have extensive Web-based
material on these people and their achievements, and it can be interesting
to learn more about them.
Q: A few of the research links are a
little bit different from the way that they are described in the
textbook. Why is this?
A: Since the Web is constantly changing, links die or move
all the time. Although the Internet Exercises were updated the week
before your textbook was printed, change on the Internet is uncontrollable.
Therefore, we have updated some of the older links with newer ones
that will provide you with similar but more current material.
