Towards the end of the semester, I usually find myself working on group projects and big assignments. These projects are usually assigned at the beginning of the year but usually are not worked on til the end of the year. The reason for this is because most of these projects do not take up too much time and are quite simple to work on. I am not sure if engineering classes usually have big group projects (besides maybe some of the earlier general engineering classes), but many business classes have big group projects that are worth quite a bit of your grade. This semester the only class in which I have a group project is ACCT 151. Our paper and presentation are due this Thursday, and we just started working on it yesterday. While this may sound atrocious, we will likely still get a good grade without much hassle. Also, one thing to note is that if you have other people presenting before you (not on the same day), then you can build off of their presentation style if the teacher comments on things he/she likes. For example, a group presented today in a manner that our professor really like; we will likely mimic that group’s style for our own presentation. While this may not sound fair, some professors will grade the earlier presenters more leniently because of the fact that they do not have predecessors to build off of. In general, if you are decent at speaking in front of people and can get your work done appropriately, you will have no problem with group projects.
