Western Civ I Dr. Knox Study Guide: Exam 1 The first exam will take place in class on 24 September and will cover all material on the Ancient World up through and including the Classical World (chapter 3). The exam will consist of three parts and you will have the entire period to complete it. This study guide is intended to help you prepare for the exam and budget your time appropriately. Statement on Academic Integrity : You are welcome and even encouraged to study together for the exam. The ultimate result, however, must demonstrate your independent thought and understanding of the material. For example, some may find it helpful to get together and talk about the term identifications. Great—but it would be inappropriate to divide the terms up and memorize a response prepared by another student. Doing so represents a form of cheating and may result in the involved students receiving an F (zero points) on the exam following Marquette’s policy on Academic Dishonesty. In the case of ambiguity of performance on the exam, students may be required to take an oral examination to confirm knowledge and understanding of the material. I. Multiple Choice (30%) 15 questions—2 points each This part of the exam assesses content (i.e. basic knowledge). These questions will be drawn from lectures and your textbook/sourcebook readings. These questions emphasize the “big picture” developments as stressed in lectures—e.g. politics, religion, intellectual change, social history, etc.—but may address material only briefly touched on there. The questions seek to avoid trivia (although we may get lucky. .. that’s a joke!). For example, the exam would not ask “In what year were the first Olympic games held?,” but might ask you to identify the significance of Greek intellectual traditions. “All of the following represent ways the Ancient Greeks investigated the human condition EXCEPT:” A) drama which explored the source of human suffering. B) careful observation of the natural world. C) incorporation of foreign traditions such as Zoroastrianism.
