Final Exam Study Guide
The exam will last two hours, is worth 100 points, and will be held at 7:50 a.m. in SFHB 139.
Leading up to the exam, I will have some special office hours. They are:
Friday, 2 May, 10:00-11:00 a.m. Tuesday, 6 May, 1:00-3:00 p.m. And by appointment.
Anything that we have covered in class this semester is fair game, but this study guide, as well as, to a lesser degree, your previous study guides, should give you a good indication of what I believe to be the most important material. I am more than happy to take your calls and e-mails between now and the exam if you have any additional questions or concerns.
The exam will consist of a number of types of questions, including multiple choice, true/false, fill-in-the-blank, short answer, matching. There will be some extra credit available, as well.
About your final papers:
I know that many of you will want to know what your grade was on the final paper before taking the final exam. BUT I will only make your grades on the final paper available if I can finish grading ALL of them before the final exam. I don’t think it’s fair for some students to know their paper grade going into the final exam and for others not to know. Based on how the grading has gone in previous semesters, I would say that you shouldn’t expect to know your paper grade before taking the final.
