This exam is designed to last the full hour and fifteen minutes of the period, so expect to write that long if
you wish to do well. DO NOT leave before the period is over; it is too distracting to others. You may write
on this exam sheet, but please turn it in separate from your exam at the end of the period. The exam should
be folded lengthwise, with your name, course and section number, and the date on the outside. Please
number your pages with your last name and page number at the top right, a la MLA format. Don’t worry
about neatness or style. Just make it legible. Good luck!
Please double-space, and use only one side of the page!
