1 ENVD 1004: An Introduction to Environmental Design Fall Semester, 2007 Peter Schneider The First Test: Name: ________________________________ SID#: ___________________________ There are 56 questions in this test. You must answer all of them, which means that any questions you leave blank will be graded as incorrect. The questions are all worth 3 points, so a perfect score on the test will be 168 points. Please write clearly and legibly , and be sure to include your name and SID# on your sheet. Your answer sheet must be handed in no later than the end of class on Thursday, October 11, 2007 . I will be posting a digital copy of this test on the class’ web site. I’ll also post my own notes for the classes from the beginning of the semester on that site. You’ll find both in the Tests module. You must turn in your completed test on an 8½x11 inch paper copy identical to the tests handed out in class. If you download a copy from the web site, be sure to print it out in the correct format, so that it fits on four letter -sized sheets.

    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.
