I provide it so that you have the opportunity to anticipate how you will respond. You may not bring any completed materials to the exam (no outline or essay). In the past, students have successfully memorized a “game plan” based on their advance preparation. Consider these suggestions before you write your essay: 1. Prepare an outline for the essay (think of it as an elaborate study guide). 2. Write a good thesis statement in advance (memorize it). 3. A standard 5-paragraph format is well suited to this essay. It goes like this: Paragraph 1: State your thesis and introduce your argument, giving an overview of 3 major pieces of evidence you will use. Paragraphs 2, 3, and 4: Organize each paragraph around a central idea that supports your argument. Be as specific as possible with your evidence. Names and other details

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
