I developed these Study Guides to be used in various courses that I taught at Indian River State College. They are tied very closely to my personal courses (reflecting the lectures I presented, the films I incorporated, and the tests I gave), so it's unlikely that they would be directly applicable to any other particular college course; however, they all contain resources that might be useful to students and/or instructors in similar introductory courses.
