NOTES ON THE FINAL EXAM MUSL 153 – History of Rock Prof. Jen Gunderman Spring 2011 Semester Saturday, April 30, noon-2pm Thursday, May 5, 9-11am The final exam will be structured in three parts. The Part I (Listening) and Part II (Short Answer) portions will NOT be cumulative, but will cover material we’ve discussed since Test 2. Both of these sections will be similar to those from previous tests this semester. Part III will consist of a longer essay in which you will analyze statements made in the final chapter of your Stuessy/Lipscomb textbook. This essay will be the cumulative portion of your exam, since you will be expected to take a broader, “big picture” view of rock music history in your analysis. One of Stuessy/Lipscomb’s eight Basic Statements will appear on your Final Exam (you don’t get to choose which one you address). For your convenience, I’ve listed the statements below, along with some questions and ideas to help you begin to organize your thoughts (my bullet points are intended to be a jumping off point only). You don’t have to memorize the statements; the one you will be analyzing will be provided for you at the exam, although without any accompanying bullet points or information. Plan to organize your essay in two basic sections: In the first half, you will elaborate on the statement as the authors present it, citing specific rock artists and musical/cultural trends from various eras to illuminate the statement. (Be sure to read their Editorial in preparation for this section of your essay, too. The more you understand about where the authors are coming from, the better your essay will be.) o

    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.
