I am a new student as well but welcome. I did want to share a tip I just started doing. I found there is a wealth of great information on the site Pointers for Planners, located under career resources. After reading the information in our books and reading some of the blogs, I now feel like I can accomplish this class.
I have also just decided to plan a fictitious social network event to introduce a business to the community. I thought this might be a good way for me to learn and to provide detailed information to pass this class.
I hope this was helpful and I wish you luck!
