ECON S-1452: Money, Financial Institutions, and Markets Teo Nicolais Section Midterm Exam Study Guide – Summer 2010 TEO’S TEST TAKING TIPS 1.) Review the entire exam before you start answering questions. This will allow you to identify those questions you know right away and allow you to better pace yourself. 2.) Go for the low-hanging fruit first. The point value assigned to each question is listed next to it for you. Go out and grab the easiest points upfront before you spend time on points that will take you longer to obtain. 3.) Answer the question . As you’re writing your response, ask yourself “Is this DIRECTLY answering the question at hand?” Many people spend so much time demonstrating their general knowledge in finance to the grader that they forget to answer the question . 4.) Answer the question. See point #3 above. 5.) Answer the question first . If the question asks “What is the new money supply?” Your response should start with “The new money supply is….” 5.) Draw diagrams to illustrate points. They serve as both sanity checks for you (your diagram should back up your story) and they offer an easy way for the grader to interpret what you’re getting at. Draw diagrams . 6.) If you get stuck, move on and come back. Sometimes, stepping away for a minute and focusing on other questions allows you to come back with a new approach. It also prevents you from losing points just because you ran out of time. Do not get bogged down on one question . 7.) If it only requires a sentence, don’t write a book. Graders will be reviewing many responses to each question. The faster you can get to the point, the faster they’ll give you points. Also, underline the relevant keywords to draw the graders attention (so they can give you points). 8.) Do not use vague “fluff” to disguise lack of knowledge – it only irritates graders Graders are quite adept at spotting this ruse. In addition to irritating the grader, you also risk undermining your credibility on other questions.
