This isn't explained in a textbook you have for the class? Or in any other reference your teacher has named or given you? Very odd.
Well, if not, you need to learn how to search efficiently for information for yourself.
At this webpage, you can go immediately to the search sites (first three columns across the top) -- or even better you can scroll down until you see the section called HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. Those are the links to start with. You'll not only learn how to come up with good search terms, but also how to evaluate the webpages you get as results. Some will be good and others will be garbage. You need to know how to tell the difference.
My favorite way to search is to go to Google's advanced search page http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en and put my search words or phrases into the first or second search box (either "all the words" or "exact phrase"). However, there many other strategies for searching you can use, and the HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET section will help you best.
For example, I entered Earl's Risk & Return Portfolios taxonomy into the first box of Google Advanced and got this:
hmm i did google like u said above but none of them came in hand
btw this subject im taking supposed to be a own learning module.so we r on our own..we have slides to rely on but it doesnt help much
i will try the advanced search
Shalini, i also am a business student and we were given the exact SAME assignment as you have mentioned above.
I too am confused as how to start and get an overall understanding.
It would help me alot, if u could help me with how you did the project?
Awaiting your reply.. Thnk u ..
