The exam will be in two parts. Part I will be on matters related to Writing Papers. Part II will be on topics covered thus far in the readings and lectures. If you will not be here on Wednesday, January 23 to take the exam, you must make prior arrangements by Monday, January 21. You must receive prior permission for absence as well as to take the exam separately. Only exceptional cases will be allowed.
The exam will be multiple choice, and as covered in the syllabus, will count 10% of your grade. There is only one right answer per question. If there appears to be more than one right answer, pick the best answer.
If you have any questions about the exam or the topics included in the exam, please ask. You can come in during office hours, make an appointment or inquire by email.
