    I DO NOT need any sources outside of the textbook the reason why i put 6 sources is if you could cite the
    textbook a few times and cite the textbook itself in relevance to the course materials. I only need it in reference
    to the textbook. I give you full permission to sign into the connect using my username and password. The
    username is darren.huck@ and the password is Dalhousie1995 I have provided instructions in the word
    document “Final Exam Materials”. In order to access the textbook you will need to copy the url from the
    document ive attached called “Registraion Guide F2020 (10).pdf” and following that you will be directed to fill
    in my email and password. this will give you access to the textbook and to the case study “Best Buy” I’ve
    attached the outline for the paper in “4001 20F Exam Guidance.pdf”. For any sort of references the only work
