Please post questions on the SyKronix Marketing Researcher's Forum
College students who are currently enrolled in a traditional marketing
principles course and who would like some additional materials to review.
Entrepreneurs and others who would like to learn a little marketing from
scratch without taking a full course.
Entrepreneurs and students outside of the U.S. who would like an overview
of Western marketing thought.
No particular textbook is recommended.
However, if you are learning marketing for the first
time, these notes and exercises will not provide you with the required
depth that a textbook and in-class experience can provide.
If you are attempting to review the general topic of marketing, these notes
should include the major issues that would be part of most textbooks.
To increase an awareness of the relevance of Western marketing thought
for students as consumers and as marketing practitioners.
To increase knowledge and understanding of marketing concepts and terminology
("principles of marketing") which form the foundation for advanced
coursework and practice in business.
None. You are on your own to assess your
performance on any exercises that are developed.
